Day 250

DahliaDad’s garden is coming to the end of it’s beauty but there are still some gorgeous dahlias.

This one is probably my favourite. Big and bold with lots of colour. Gorgeous.

Day 148

Dad's garden centreWe have quite a big garden and it is a constant battle to keep it looking ok. In contrast my Dad has the most immaculate garden. He spends a lot of money and hundreds of hours weeding and tidying. He also is growing a lot of plants ready to pot up, so I went to visit to see what I could scrounge for my tubs and pots!

A year in pictures – Day 158

Greenhouse

The greenhouse is starting to burst into life and The Mister has build this frame to support the tomatoes… I think it should be strong enough to support the weight this year!

A year in pictures – Day 104

Car choresWe had a busy and productive day in the garden. To be honest it has been left to rack and ruin over the winter so now we are trying it back into a fit state for planting.

We cleared the veg patch, I thinned out the raspberries and dug up some raspberry canes and planted a few more.

The kids mostly played happily and even offered to clean the cars for us! Obviously, the need to be nearly naked when doing this chore is a necessity!

Little GardenerIt is time to get out into the garden.

I have planted up loads of potato bags and some plants from my Dad .

Fortunately I have a little helper to assist with the watering.

The Climber

The Mister and I spent a bit of time in the garden today and we were chatting about what we were planning and turned round and The Little Miss had climbed right to the top of the stepladder. She is amazing at climbing which is rather heart-stopping at times!!!

2016 Project366 (Day 303)

GardeningWe finally got a bit of time out in the garden this afternoon and spent some time clearing up the veg patch and getting rid of all the dead things that were left at the end of the season. The Mister also gave the apple tree a rather drastic prune. It hasn’t been a great fruiter this year so hopefully it will sort it out!

The Little Mister was keen to help out, especially where secateurs and loppers are in use!

2016 Project366 (Day 239)

SunbathingAnother hot day today and the cats seem to find the best place to soak up the rays.

This spot in the greenhouse seems to be one of the favourites.

The children love this gentle pussy cat The Little Miss can often be seen attempting to ‘steer’ him with his tail!

2016 Project366 (Day 200)

Little and large

I sang in a lovely concert tonight at The Town Church but I have absolutely no photos of that at all!

Instead here is a picture of my first tomatoes. Little and large and they smell delicious!

2016 Project366 (Day 199)

Sunny Sunday

Hot and sunny today. We had a lovely trip into town for the Motorsport Seafront Sunday which fed the father-in-laws obsession with cars.

We then returned home and got the paddling pool out. We finished off with a barbecue. What a brilliant end to the weekend.
