That nasty Discontented Winter has created some gaps in the gardens. Big gaps. It’s icy tail flicked across the gardens and sent killing shivers down the spines of trees and vines.
The peach tree and a couple of a little apple trees -Dead. Also a big apple tree and a pear – Dead. Sopsta’s bright yellow magnolia only has three blooms but is coming along, though Donna’s magnolia is doing exceptionally well. Not dead.
The Ladybird Wine grapes (Vidal Blanc) are showing no signs of anything at all. All the canes are dead. Misery. Could there be No More Wine!? Horrors! Even my table grapes are showing no signs of life. Only one remains alive. How can I drink wine without grapes! (rhetorical question – no question mark). Of course I will plant more vines on the new trellises but they take four years to mature, I have learnt way too much about wine making to stop now. But.. sigh… I will keep checking for signs of life.. but so far – Dead. A bitter blow.
She really does look like a puff fish when she lies down. Wait here is another angle.
Well, that is not a very flattering angle either. She looks more like a piebald blob that someone forgot to wipe up. She is such a good piggie and she loves all people and all animals. All the visitors get some Tima loving.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
You can put in requests you know. If you miss your favourites.. let me know! My days are full of gardening now and mowing and watering and all that lovely summery stuff!
Daisy’s milk was clear yesterday. Excellent. Hopefully that lasts a little while.
