The garden's really beginning to grow up now. The nasturtiums I planted along the edge of the raised bed have gone a bit crazy so you can't really see what is behind them!
And this is just from a different angle, behind the apple tree. Lots of the plants are covered with aphids (the nasturtiums are particularly bad), but, having done some reading about it, it looks like things should balance out within a couple of years if we don't use chemicals. Certainly we've attracted quite a crowd of dunnocks who seem to like hopping around eating the aphids, and there are definitely more ladybirds around now.
We had to move the bird feeder after seeing a squirrel taking a flying leap from the trellis onto it, and then the OH saw a mouse shinning up the pole to the feeder so we've put some mouse traps down in the shed.
Some of this is a bit pointless, as, as you can see, it has a BIG damp problem:
The librarian urge overcame me and I arranged the plant pots in size order.
Outside in the garden things are looking a LOT prettier than in the shed. This is a rose we were given as a wedding present last year:
And all the fuchsias are now flowering.
