June 2014 - Year 4


Hello all interested peoples ….
Its about a year since i last blogged and not too much has happened in the garden this year … ‘twas a bit wet if i remember correctly.
I am putting up some photo’s taken very recently to bring you up to date with how we have progressed to this point in time.

We’ve managed to get some shade over the pond now which has helped in keeping the dreaded blanket weed at bay and cooling the water down for the Koi.

We had a bit of a garden party last weekend so i put up my marquee as it did rain quite a bit up to the start of the party. However, the sun always shines on the righteous and the Saturday afternoon was a blazing success.

We have added a small rose garden this year. The netting is to keep the dogs offuntil it has established a bit … but you get the idea i hope.

…and one of my blogs wouldn’t be the same without showing off the family …..

Bonnie – now aged 2 and a bit …

Princess – now aged 3 ….

….and my georgeous Rusty who is one year old next month ….

…. and they say …. Love is … a cuddle on the settee

Hope to catch up again very soon
Tony & Margy

Hi Tony,its looking as lovely as ever, I like the rose garden, its a very good idea to protect it whilst it gets established, as a gardener with two large playful dogs I know full well what can happen at times, lol.. I do like the photo's of your pet family especially the cuddly one at the end ....

Hello Tony and Marg, your garden looks really fabulous. As Lijemc says, looks like that was some party. The pond is a lovely feature, I guess it's well stocked with expensive fish? Your family look very happy and content.
