Garden Update

Garden Update

The garden, 3 June 2007 The garden is looking a bit more kempt now; I've cut back the bushes at the left hand side and mown the grass! The pond which I dug a month back is now home to a large frog who is very well camouflaged. The apple tree slightly overhangs the pond so I have to work out something to do about the June Drop which must be imminent. Netting, I expect. This will also keep the cats from thinking it's frog-fishing time. Cats don't go after frogs if they first encounter a toad, because toads taste horrible to cats and cats can't tell the difference between the two kinds of creature. So I hear. There are purple alliums to the right and also the shrubs I planted under the shade of the pittosporum are doing well considering.
