Gardening moments

After a very wet, miserable and long winter, my garden is in need of some serious attention.  We are having a spell of warm and sunny days which is beautiful gardening weather.  First on my list was to fertilise the vege garden with good old cow poo and mulch with pea straw.  I love the combination of cow poo and pea straw as it is slowly turning heavy clay soil of my garden into beautiful soil.  One thing I'm not happy about this year is the number of ants that have taken up residence in my garden.  The vege garden is riddled with them, grrr.  Anyway, here are a few photos of what I did yesterday.  The roses were treated with cow poo and pea straw too.  Lets hope they reward me with lovely flowers.
I seem to have terrible trouble trying to get good photos in the bright midday sun.  Sorry about the quality.

Somehow in a few short months, I have managed to rack up 97 posts and with the 100th post not far away, you know what that means.  The 100th post will be a give away post.  I'm not sure what it will be yet, I'm working on it.  Stay tuned.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone,

Anne  xx

Last week I saw on BH&G to use 2/3 white vinegar and 1/3 water around trees for ants, may be of some help until it rains again.

you have so much sunshine! it has been raining sideways in ireland for about 3 weeks now... its SO miserable. my friends trampolene ended up on the roof of someones house and all my plants were moved indoors!! My cyclamen are suffering big style because its not humid enough so im shifting them between the bathroom when there are showers going on and the conservatory when the heat and tumbledryer is on! My orchid seems to be coping ok after coming back to life! i was so pleased!! I bought a gorgeous bunch of lavender yesterday wrapped up in lace.. just a beautiful decoration to keep my spirits up that my garden will survive the winter! lol. My mum is raging ive turned her conservatory into a greenhouse essentially. Currently trying to revive my tub of lettuces :)
