The picture on todays 'photo a Day' blog shows you that Tango is feeling much better, although we have had to make a trip to the vets and pay another bill!!!!!! This means that he has taken over from Chimarni. We have had alot of trouble from this particular feral cat, and it has cost us hundreds of pounds in vets bills. Although we managed to trap him 2 - 3 years ago and get him neutered, it supposedly stops them being as aggressive (yea! right!!)
I have now phoned the Cats Protection League at least 4 times requesting them to get the lady from the feral dept, to contact me. Has she, has she my big toe!!!!! So I will phone daily this week and then if I get no joy I will have no option but to contact the RSPCA. The difference between the 2 is the Cats Protection League will find the feral cat a new home on a farm quite a distance away, the RSPCA put them down!!!! The bigger problem is I think we may have a new un-neutered feral on the block, I can smell 'tom' round the shed!!!
Yesterday I dug over
these two beds, so they now look like this...
Remember this untidy corner
well I have repotted a few plants and potted up the Camillia and the corner looks like this
I still have to jet wash the patio but there is still plants to move, dig out and replant before I consider jet washing!!!
The chickens where enjoying themselves in the sunshine
and in answer to the question ' will I let them Free Range'? The answer is sort of but not really! Don't get me wrong I love them to pieces, they give me hours of endless amusement and the most beautiful eggs, but I had no idea how destructive they would be, so I let them do this
as you can see I have opened up the chicken fencing which stops them digging up the flower and veg beds. The compost bin is being moved so they will have some more space!
I decided to tackle the area round the shed today, so it started of looking like this...
and after 4 1/2 hours of work it ended up looking like this....
So everything used today was already in the garden. My hobbit (white statue) had been hidden away behind a big bush so I thought I would bring him out and I think he helps draw the eye down the garden!!! I probably need some sort of climber behind him, so will have to see what offers are available! The ferns planted around his feet are my 99p bargains I got last year with the beautiful blue pots!!
I moved the compost bin and now I've looked at the pictures I realise I've moved the wrong bin!!!!! It needed to be moved but it was going to be swapped for the bigger one up the garden!!!! Silly me.
The frame at the end has a cover and I use it for extra tomato plants, I put the cover away in the winter. Here I need more slabs and a water butt. I will see if I can pick some up on Freecycle.
Looking at it now it doesn't look like there was 4 1/2 hrs work there!!!
My back is now very dodgy, so don't tell hubby!!!!! So I shall get out my knitting and sit and watch a dvd!!! and try and be good, until tomorrow! Maybe!!!
