A semi-mature, hardy individual who tries to get away with doing as little as possible in gardening as in life, still expects the best results & wonders why she is frequently disappointed! She likes to keep a photographic record of everything, good & frequently bad!

In honour of National Poetry Day…..

I love you lily

Oh why did I leave you to

Suffer the slug fest?

  2. You're my favourite poet of all time,

    In honour of this, I have posted a comment in rhyme.

  3. In the face of such competition I shall give up my new career as a garden poet!

  4. Ms B I think you're very silly
    To let a slug destroy your lily
    After the slug enjoyed it's fest
    I hope you killed the bloody pest

  5. Don't be dismayed,
    Don't feel bereft
    Beetles finish
    What the slugs have left.
