A break from progress

I have been trawling through our hard drive searching for pictures of our garden as it once was but as yet I have just found thousands of pictures of our little garden helpers. We have been at this house for a little over two and a half years and Garden Girl was born shortly after we moved in. Since then my camera has been in excessive use but unfortunately there is little to show our garden as it was when we moved in. The most you are likely to see is a patch of crushed grass as Garden Girl or Garden Boy disappear from view, or maybe a pretty flower in the hands of a little one, scattering petals. I will keep searching but if I have no joy this weekend I will resort to a rambling description that might just give you an idea of the change our garden has been through.

In the meantime I am waiting for Garden Dad to drill holes in jar lids. The promise of a sprout feast hasn't quite provided the necessary encouragement for him to get stuck in. Maybe I should learn how to use a drill.

This weekend I intend to move my original plants back into the greenhouse. After the frost we decided to keep them indoors a little longer while we solved the problem of unwelcome garden visitors but, fingers crossed, we are now rodent free. (If anyone has any tips on how to prevent them coming back when there will soon be a tempting vegetable feast in the garden please let us know.) And I am excited that we will be getting the seed packets out again. Garden Boy will be delighted with the opportunity to get his hands mucky again and Garden Girl just wants to be allowed back in the greenhouse.
