Every morning we check our tomato babies if they are getting red and ready but every morning they say “Not yet”.
However, this evening, daddy found this!
They will be ready soon, won’t they, daddy?
Also, look at this!
Our only cucumber, Mr Cucumber, is nearly ready. There was another one, Miss Cucumber, growing but it seems that this huge Mr has been sucking all the nutrition before Miss Cucumber and she was extinct. It’s a natural survival battle, isn’t it?
Although we are still looking after the tomatoes and the only cucumber, our French beans and Strawberries have finished so we got this young newcomer, the Spinach girls.
We’ve got few more new things.
This is a new pressie for little birdies, pretty bird bath from Chertsey show. Now they have yummy food, a lovely house and the pretty bath. How lucky they are!
However…..they haven’t come recently. Why? I had a dream which a couple of birdies enjoying the bath together, daddy. When are they coming?
This new little Acer is for daddy. We already have a small one in the ground, which has been taking loooong time to grow, but when daddy saw this little one at the garden centre he couldn’t ignore it. It said “Take me home with you. I’ll be perfect for Bonsai.” Daddy is always interested in Japanese Bonsai, you see. We will see how beautifully daddy can make this Bonsai Acer look like.
The big white round one is pretty Chrysanthemums for mummy. They are strong and come back every year, so mummy loves them.
Also we’ve got lots and lots of grass seeds.
Because of our girly pee-pee and various other reasons there were lots of patches as well as moss. Mummy and Silky wanted to get some turf and fill the patches like patchwork but because of the dry weather we’d had, garden centres didn’t have turf at all. So, daddy and I decided to scatter grass seeds. We scattered a lot, really really a lot, and now we have to watch those nasty pigeons. Every time Silky and I find nasty pigeons eating our seeds we dash towards them with very scary barking. Sometimes pigeon and I stare at each other woofly long time, like 20 minutes, and I always win. Still, they are very persistent, daddy.
It was really slow to grow but we started to see a little grass growing after about 10 days. Daddy said it’s good to walk on it so we help daddy for it.
Sometimes I even kick them after my pee-pee because I think treating them roughly makes them stronger, but daddy doesn’t like it.
Woof? It’s time to water the garden, Silky.
