    Re: Gardening

    Welcome to our little circle of Gardeners, River Rat, Airborne, and Eddie. Hi there Mark, good to see you again. Our English Country garden is just about coming into full bloom now. I just wish I could post some pictures, I am just about coming to the end of my roll of film ( don't have a digi camera...yet) When its finished I will post some. Mark, your garden is coming along great, and yes there is nothing more enjoyable than sitting out on a Summers evening, taking in the scent of the flowers. We are growing a few tomatoes, and runner beans alongside the flowers, just using as much possible space as possible. We have lillies, roses, pinks, fuschias, busy lizzie, geraniums, I could go on lol. We also had a nesting box on a trellis for one of our native birds called "blue tits" they are so tiny but very pretty. Well they did use it, and I am proud to say I became the Mother of 3 little fledglings lol Our cat took great interest in this box, and the day that they fledged I had to pick the 3 of them up and put them in a safe place until they were strong enough to fly away. A garden can be a very theraputic place to work in, especially at the end of a busy day.

    Take care all, and happy gardening Mark. regards Unicorn

    Refusing to think "outside the box" is an indication of square thinking.

    Mapo,

    Your garden looks great! Being from that area (lived at Ft. Lewis for 5 years and born and raised in/around Everett) I know all too well the 'green' that grows up there is mostly Dandilions and Alder trees! LOL I think it's great when you can start something in the ground and grow and maintain it. I was always better at killing the shrubs off!

    Unicorn,
    Your English garden sounds great, too! We had a Goldfinch rear a chick in one of our birdhouses and we found it one day hanging out on our patio. We scooped it up and put it closer to the barn, under the large Apple tree near the bird feeder. Unfortunately, an hour or so later we noticed a couple of ravens had ran the other birds off and much to our horror quite a few yellow feathers floating around. They scattered off when we stepped out the patio doors... (

    I didn't mean to bring you all down! Dispite all that -

    I'll post some pics of my place soon! (sans feathers )
