What’s been happening in my garden at the end of June ? Not much really as we still have no real Summer weather, most days of the last 2 weeks were cold and rainy and windy but the forecast for the near future is a lot better so shall we finally get Summer over here in froggyland ? I’ll let you know, ok ?!
My garden is full of frogs, I really have to watch where I step when I am removing weeds or plant a plant cos I don’t want to step on one, some are tiny others are quite big but we have the quiet ones, the brown frog, he only says prrrrrr prrrrr ….The slugs are having a ball too, they are everywhere, luckily we have a thrush with a nest full of babies and I see broken slug shell’s everywhere.
MY FIRST DAHLIA FLOWER OF THE YEAR, A YELLOW ONE CALLED YELLOW STAR, IT’S IN A BLUE POT SO I LIKE THIS COMBINATION, IT HAS A LOT OF BUDS SO I AM HOPEFULL, ALL IT NEEDS IS A COUPLE OF WARM DAYS
