Mrs B - 1, Weeds - 0 !!




Time to tackle the weeds .....
The sun was shining today again and so it seemd appropriate to tackle the weeds growing in my garden.

blue sky over the roof tops


muddy boots


 
(vintage!) garden fork


Closer inspection led to the discovery of some pretty things growing here ...







 


 
and some other garden features ...



Blackcurrant cuttings (growing indoors)



 
Then inside for hours of fun with a cardboard box!!!

 



Before slippers off and to bed ...


 


Take care

  2. Lovely photos - those pansies are just beautiful. Your post title made me laugh! Always good to see who's winning against the pesky weeds! Intrigued by your blackcurrant cuttings - did you just cut them and stick them in some potting compost or did you do something more complicated?

  5. Lovely flowers, especially the pink ones in the fifth photo. I always dread weeding but feel so much better after I've done it..a bit like cleaning the oven!

    1. Hello Susan. The boots were a necessity today - I couldn't believe how muddy it was in the garden!

  9. Dear Lorraine,

    Aren't those pansies stunning? Such warm colours which are not widely seen at this time of year, I think. I love your boots too!

    Thank you for your sweet, kind comment on my blog about my rabbits. Mademoiselle Primavera and her friends, old and new, will soon be on sale. Wish my luck ;-)

    A bientôt!

  12. Ooh, I have a vintage garden fork too - just like your one. It belonged to my Dad and I treasure it. It has a special place, in the ground, in my vegetable plot! Elaine
