Today will be clearing out a garden bed day. I definitely must get all the poppy seeds in so out come the old plants .
i'm so glad we dont get those fireants here. I did meet the green ants when up in Darwin.
My most prolific pests here are the slugs and slaters.
The slaters live in and under pots by the millions. They are always inside too. They dont seem to bother any pot plants but the slugs eat enough to make up for the lack of any snails on our hill.
I hate sluggies Ugh
Moon, your garden sounds lovely, have you photos ? Yes, daylilies are really tough. Strangely , my plants which usually die back in winter, have not this year. They have had a flower here and there right from last summer.
Hello Charleen, I hope the chickens eat all those pests for you. I do miss my hens, but too many foxes here to get any more.
I bet Charley would like those biscuits, Marlene.
Anthony, I hope you are feeling better today after a good rest. I'm still watching those buds on the L. 'Dimension'. taking a while to open in the cold.
I bought some lilium seeds from eBay. Couldnt resist as they were so cheap. I know I have to wait a while but something to look forward to. ( L. szovitsianum )
Hello Pam , Karen, Chrissy and Dianne. Also Teresa and Louise.
I am putting out something yummy for you all.
You can see most of the cakes etc on Joy of Baking.
Try these Orange Pineapple Muffins.
Happy day, Jean
