Me versus The Slugs

Spring is here and it's time to say "hello" to my lupins.  I love my lupins but unfortunately so do the slugs and in my garden sadly the slugs by far out number the lupins.  So today is the official start to the annual battle....Me vs The Slugs.  Aaaarghhhh!  I'll keep you updated. 

About 3 years ago Miss M and Grandad planted a pip from an apple Miss M had just eaten .  Together they  found an old yoghurt carton and some mud...yes mud not potting compost and waited....and waited....and waited.  Just look at it, getting ready to grow again this spring.

Lots of lovely new green leaves

Also we're looking for new accommodation , compact and bejou, own front door, sunny and secluded location, nestled in an antique rose bush, must be willing to share garden with two lively and noisy children!

We've been lucky to have had resident blue-tits for 4 years now.  This year Mr A has pulled out all the stops...he steam cleaned the bird box with our new steam that taking it a bit too far?!
