Today has been the most glorious day with beautiful weather we haven't seen much of this summer. It provided the perfect opportunity for me to attend to another section of garden that has been begging for attention for months. So out I went donned in daggy gardening clothes, armed with wheelbarrow, trowel, secateurs, forked weed digger and of course gardening gloves. I usually wear gardening gloves 'cos I don't like dirt getting under my nails and getting jabbed by rose thorns, bitten by spiders etc. Today I was extra glad I was wearing gloves because while I was digging around weeding, this is what came to say hello.

When I researched what type of scorpions
are to be found where I live, I was relieved to discover that the ones in Australia don't kill you. I've since read that they are good for controlling pests in the garden but unfortunately I wasn't privy to this information before I killed him. Sorry scorpion, you scared me.
So here is the garden I worked on today. Unfortunately the sun had gone behind clouds and I don't have many flowers as it's quite shaded here and the weather hasn't been warm enough. At least it is tidy and mainly weed free now.
Well that's my Saturday to date. Lovely Claire from Sweet Birdy Love
|suspects I'm crocheting with my new wool. Unfortunately not, as I've discovered I have another six bunting triangles to crochet to finish my project. There will be a reveal when I've finished, promise. |
Have a wonderful Sunday.
P.S. Look what hubby made for dinner. Home made burgers. YUM!!
