Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.
Another sunny day here is North Kent. The alarm clock went off early this morning, The Missus had a dream about a design for something or other and just couldn't sleep, so up she gets and of course, wakes everyone else up in the process!
That of course means we were down on the beach a little earlier than normal!
|The early bird looking for breakfast!|
|Just a five minute snooze thanks!|
|Come on, Shift Yer Tail Lad!|
Now, a couple of years ago, after digging out the pond, Old Two Legs decided that we should have a 'Wild Life Garden' right up the back of the garden, in the sunlight and his idea was to put a log or two there, drilled with holes for the bugs and bees to live in. Then he got a few packets of 'Wild Flower Seeds' from a stallholder who was trying to get him to sign up to a 'Funeral Plan'. OTL said that if he got a shovel from Amazon and TM was still around, she could bury him in the Wild Life Garden and save a fortune!
TM didn't seem to think it was a good idea!
Any way, as well as the packets of seeds he collected some seeds from the wild 'Goats Beard' flowers down on The Sea Wall, and, at the correct time scattered them over the Wild Life Garden with the instructions to 'Get on with it'!
Last year there was nothing but weeds and poppies that came up but he left it and didn't even cut down the foliage as he was supposed to do.
This year, he was pulling some of the weeds out that had crept over the rocks which mark the border between 'Wild' and 'Planted', when he spotted four flower buds and guess what?
They are Goats Beard!
|A bit small but they are Goats Beard!|
You know, Holly and I have been helping with the Wild Life Garden and every night we both got there for a wee before going to bed!
Holly reckons her wee has helped the Goats Beard 'cos that is growing just where she likes to wee!
I reckon that if that is true, then the whole garden should be a jungle by now!
Then we spotted some water coming out of the pond!
|Tadpoles doing a Wee?|
|Any moment now and we'll be off!|
|A Woofing Good Game!|
|Where's a Yellow Filter when you need one!|
See you tomorrow!
Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.
