Waiting For A Home Inspection.

There was good news today regarding Michael. After a bit of a mix up we managed to make contact with the dog rescue people and after a few questions and what have you over the telephone we have managed to get a home visit by one of their representatives to see if we are suitable candidates for his adoption so everything is being crossed in preparation for the visit, a time and date for which has yet to be arranged.

Tonight we made a call to enquire about this Collie dog who is currently staying at Wiccaweys Border Collie rescue

His name is Michael and is around 6 years old. Unfortunately there was no one there to take our call so had to leave a message.

Hydrangea Pruning Day

Today is to be Hydrangea Pruning Day, two of which are by the Gardeners Cottage. I'm always in two minds on how to Prune these two bushes, do I cut them well down to let more light in to the house or leave them higher to restrict nosey parkers.

Moving Grass

I haven't done a live post for a few days now, mainly due to the fact that most of that time has been spent cutting grass. As it was the first proper cut of the year I have given it a good going over and the gardens look better for it. This morning I have had several big heaps of grass cuttings to move as a result of all my hard work. Some have gone on the compost heap and the rest I have put around the Base of shrubs down the avenue.

Apricot Blossom

One of the important jobs at this time of year for me is to polinate the Apricot Blossom. I do have the doors of the conservatory open provide the weather is decent in the hope of attracting some bees or whatever indoors but there aren't to many around at the moment so around noon I get out the paint brush and tickle the flowers with it.

Steps Cleaning.

I've managed to get the waste ground job finished in good time so I am going to finish the day off by sweeping the back steps to the office. Up until recently these steps h‎Ave been piled high with stone slates so no chance to look after them.
