They have started to multiply and can be seen guarding some of the plant pots.
The tyres have already become a wonderful addition to the garden, a double tyre used to plant up some carrots. They are settling in well so I am hopeful that we might get a a small crop.
Rhubarb was planted in one but sadly is not doing so well, the rabbits seem to favour that tyre and are constantly chewing the rhubarb.
I painted some wooden spoons black to use as antennae, and use as labels.
Although still chilly we are beginning to see a little sun which certainly makes us feel a little better. Jobs once again are starting to get done outside, slow but steady. The daylight hours are lengthening, giving us some stunning evening skies which we enjoy looking out over the croft.
As always I thank you for your visit to my little space in blogland and for your uplifting comments and finally just because...
See you soon.
