Thursday In The Garden - Happy Earth Day

Happy Earth Day to all our friends!

It's about high time we did another gardening post around here!

After all, since we've been experiencing some of the loveliest weather April has to offer and the relative peace and quiet of British Airspace being closed, it seemed a shame to waste the day indoors.

Above is our Ribes or Flowering Red Current plant that mum rescued from Grandma Bean, who sadly neglected it and then decided to bin it. Can you believe it?? Anyway mum rescued it, cut it back hard and grew it on in a pot all last year, until this spring when it was finally ready to be planted in the garden. It's so happy it rewarded mum with two lots of beautiful flowers.

Now mum would like to have you believe that she did the work in the above pictures, but she didn't. In fact two strange men came yesterday and dug up our broken concrete sunbathing place, erm, I mean garden path and replaced it with top soil and grass seed. Of course we snoopervised the whole operation from the start. Now we have to look after the grass seeds until they decide to grow into nommy grass. That means scaring away the birds (we've got that covered) and watering the seeds. Water? Umm, muuuuuuuuuuuuum!

Don't forget to check out our very good friends gardening posts today as well.
