I have waited all week to spend the weekend in the garden, so this morning I was up bright and early as there was so much to do. I cut the grass in the garden and noticed a couple of strawberry plants had a bit of snail or slug damage but I have been saving my egg shells in a jar and had plenty of shells to put around the base of my plants.
I noticed one of my Raspberry plants had come into leaf.

MINT! Poking out the corner of my raised bed...in the ground! Now I never planted this and I have no mint in the garden Maybe there was a seed in the top soil I put in the raised bed last April or maybe she has visited my garden, it made me smile but it has got to come out before it takes hold.
While Louie was cutting the grass I was raking up the mess the bonfires had made. Then we planted two fruit trees a Pear and a "Apple cider" Apple tree.
Milly came out she must have smelt Louie's bacon as she has been resting for a couple of day's with a nasty virus. She sits on the swing looking a little weak and tired.
Our Milly is not green fingered at all but she asks me if she can have a job to do, she does some weeding under our apple tree.
She puts the crushed egg shells around the strawberry plants for me.
We have a family run garden centre in the next village, after our work was done for today Milly came with me to the garden centre. I told her to choose a tree as we have room for three more trees...she chose a Mulberry tree and I bought a Grapevine.
Tonight I shall read up about my buys today.
Of course before I finish tonight's post there has to be another photo of my laundry on the line today!! :))
Feeling grateful for such a beautiful day. God Bless my friends x
