At last – I think spring has finally sprung here in South Devon, so this week I’ve been looking around my garden – assessing the havoc and mayhem caused by both the excessive rainfall/prolonged cold weather and two very naughty newfies with large paws and inquisitive natures!
The entrance to Ben’s den where they both like to hang out!
I am sorry to say that Daisy is a bit of a digger! She started her first hole in the border whilst still very young and it didn’t originally amount to much. However, over the last week or so she has enlarged it considerably and started not one, but two additional excavations which are much more impressive! Ben, on the other hand, does not like to dig – he enjoys pruning and snipping much more – and has been working hard on enlarging his “den” hidden in the hedge at the end of the garden where he can peer through the fence and monitor the activities of my lovely next-door neighbours!
Luckily my baby courgettes are well out of the reach of their large furry paws and inquisitive whiskery faces!
My friend Jacqui, of Flapdoodle Designs is a passionate gardener – and has put together a free printable for everyone who loves their gardens – whether as keen diggers, pruners and planters – or simply sitting and enjoying the sunshine and flowers (I’m hopeful that this year we’ll have a good summer and there will be lots of sunshine and flowers!).
It’s a lovely gardener’s notebook, with nice clear lined pages for each month of the year – and some of Jacqui’s lovely illustrations too …
