The pets have been enjoying the garden this week. The weather has been varied but in no way as wet as last week!
Tiger has discovered the Nepeta (Cat Nip) and loves it almost as much as the bees. Dottie is just bonkers as ever!
Dottie loves to play with her towel that I lay on the patio for her to sunbathe on!
The garden has really grown after all the rain but of course with rain comes slugs and snails. I have tried beer traps, picking them off at dusk and putting down egg shells but they have still got to some of my vegetables which is frustrating! I wrote a post about dealing with slugs and snails organically here but fear I am failing somewhat!
Here are the vegetables.
With all the rain and wind of last week, my Lupins are looking a little flopsy but are still stunning in the cottage border.
At the weekend we added some annuals such as Cosmos in this border to fill in any gaps. I think I would like to add some more as I love their pop of colour in here.
