The hay run can be quite challenging…everyone wants to be a part of it!
As usual, wildlife is full to over-flowing with hedgehogs. Almost 100 at the moment.
The really sickly ones need hand-feeding. This little chap has the most awful lung-worm and was close to death when he came in. He’s hanging on, three days later, thankfully.
We also have LOTS of adorable bunnies!
Storm Doris attempted to wreck the place while we were away. The side fence in the back garden was smashed to smithereens.
We now have a new one, £1.500 quid later!
The damage to that border was awful. Shrubs crushed, young fruit trees broken, plants and bulbs utterly trampled and climbers snapped at the base. Sometimes gardening seems to be an uphill struggle. I really will have to re-think the lawn/mud track, maybe flag parts of it? Dogs will be dogs!
The to-do list is somewhat overwhelming!
That fence at the back, erected to keep Buddy in, still needs leveling and painting.
Trees and branches, along with tiles and broken fencing are strewn EVERYWHERE, and I haven’t even cleared the autumn leaves yet. But, hey ho, it could have been worse, I suppose!
Crocus swamped by leaves, and battered by rain and wind.
Most are completely washed out, but those that aren’t are MOST cheering.
Tete-a-tete are everywhere….
along with the Hellebore’s.
My current favourite. All without labels I’m afraid. Seems Doris stole them all.
Today, I ignored the clear up, and the impossible to-do list and sowed me some seeds.
A girl can always grow more plants!!!
