There's an 'ole in my backyard

dear Liza, dear Liza,
which is going to be a little conservatory very soon. Just enough to sit out in and enjoy breakfast while watching the garden, or perhaps a space for cross cats to hide,


ones who want absolute reassurance that they are NOT going to be taken to that nasty place where someone sticks a needle into them. They sat here in a defensive huddle for the entire afternoon. Trust may now have been restored, but only by liberal application of the best biscuits in the house

Meanwhile more discoveries tucked away in little nooks and corners of the garden, like


walnut "catkins" swaying in the evening breeze


the subtle beauty of granny's bonnets - one of my favourite flowers


and this wonderful vibrant poppy which we discovered almost smothered in grass and weeds, but which is now reveling in weed free soil and a good watering. There are two more flower heads to follow ...
