Fixing up the garden
The garden became a bit untidy while I was gone, even for my wild and chaotic standards! The grass was way too long, weeds and dead flower heads everywhere, lettuces completely dissapeared. Above are field poppies and borage taking over the raspberry patch. They can stay..
Had to clear out some long weed grass to find a viola leaning over the black mondo grass.
A self seeded viola, looking amazingly like a watercolor painting. Darn slugs found it first..
Daisies struggling through the geranium leaves to get sunlight.
Malva, very small, was buried under some weeds.
Dark Lady was all dead flowers refusing to drop on thier own, these opened up during the week after I cut all the old hips off.
The parsley was looking great.
And THIS is where all the lettuces went. There were several of these giant slugs all over. *shivers* .. I don't like slugs.. Where are all the slug-eating birds??
So I've weeded and planted out new little seedlings, which amazingly were still alive in their pots.. so hopefully in a couple weeks, all will look much nicer.
I'll have a chance to visit everyone's blog over the weekend, so see you then!
