Goats Beard in Our Garden!

Hi Woofers!

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!
Mr Brambles was out of the ferret bag for an 'Early Morning Wee' but Snowflake decided to stay in the bag for a little while longer!

Just a five minute snooze thanks!
Mind you, when we got to the beach she was out and chasing Brambles all over the place!

Come on, Shift Yer Tail Lad!
Back home we were served up chicken but to be honest, it was just too warm for eating!

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!
So, not only have we got to keep an eye open for Trevor and his mates but now we have got to keep an eye on the Goats!

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?
Lunchtime we headed off to do some deliveries and ended up at the Riverside Park!

Any moment now and we'll be off!
Holly and I had a great time sniffing the sniffs and when we got to the far end, we had a super game of 'Chase' and managed to scare a couple of pigeons out of the bushes with our woofing!

A Woofing Good Game!
OTL was all upset 'cos he didn't bring his Yellow Filter and there were some dramatic clouds over the Power Station!

Where's a Yellow Filter when you need one!
Back home for a snooze before dinner, we may be feasting on the chicken, unless OTL has got something tasty in his bowl!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.
