Another month gone in the blink of an eye and still so much to do in the garden getting ready for the winter.Yesterday I spent quite some time covering benches and carvings and bringing seats and smaller carvings into the garage, but still more to do. My son is visiting this weekend so hopefully he will put the heavier things away for me, he will be rewarded with a meal at our local pub! Storm Agnes, which was the remains of a hurricane in the Carribean, didn’t really amount to much, thank goodness! After all the warnings, I was expecting dreadful weather but it was just stronger wind than usual, I think it was worse further north.
Anyway, time for Six on Saturday………..
Nos 5.6.and even 7!
Something keeps moving the label! The stone is quite heavy, but the label goes walkabout. I’m finding it under the pergola, or by the pond or on the circular lawn. Yesterday I found it at the back of the pot almost pushed underneath.
You would think that it would be easy to catch the culprit, weeks can go by and I have lots of little videos of the hedgehog, it couldn’t reach, a fox cub, I think this is the culprit but haven’t caught it yet, or lots of neighbours cats, could be a squirrel, but they are in bed at night time. Weeks went by and nothing happened, then I moved the camera to the circular lawn, straight away the label went missing again, this has happened 3 times now, I’m sure something is watching for when I move the camera, it is now back in place waiting for the phantom plant label thief to show his or her hand once more! I don’t think I really need to keep the label any more, I don’t think I’ll ever forget the name of my lovely Acer now, but I would like to find out what is going on in my garden while I am sleeping!
That’s it for another week, thanks Jim for hosting again, making it possible for us to see gardens from around the world.
