I am fed up with rabbits!!
There was even one in our own garden this morning. I shall need to find out where it is getting in.
Everything we plant at Freshwinds must be protected and it does spoil the look of the garden.
Last week the rabbit wire was removed from the butterfly garden....we thought it would be OK.....but today we found the lovely poppies eaten down.
This is what they would look like if they were left alone.
We have had to put black netting back around them.
Why can`t they go and eat the lovely lush grass in our mini-orchard which is just getting longer and longer.
On a more positive note
the apples are filling out.
I planted the last of my sunflowers grown from seed. Hooray.
I weeded the greenhouse beds.......
.......laughed at the calendula trying to show us its beauty......
......admired the osteospurnums.....
.....and enjoyed the way the hop is spreading far and wide.
At home I filled a pretty little jug with scabious, the first cosmos and some alliums.
We have decided to invest in 50 metres of rabbit wire and enclose all beds but will that be the answer?
Watch this space.
