Garden Thursday

Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer and Trooper.

Like Ducky said the other day, the weather is super duper! We all wish it would stay like this for, well, furrever! Not gonna happen, but we can wish.

Mum got rid of the weed pile last Caturday. Since it rained ti was a bit icky and slick to move, but she got it all carted off.
 So it was all messy under the pile and still wet, but what mum didn't get a pic of was of all the worms that were hiding out under the pile! As she moved off the weeds, the took off to get back into the grass. Mum says she was happy they went back to the grass to live, they help out the soil.
Since it was all wet the tarps got all dirty, so mum hung it up on the line and used the hose to wash it off to get it clean.
Then she let them hang on the line to dry off until she put them away in the afternoon.
 Mum learned a trick on Face Book from Alfie and Milo's mum, Miss Jan. Seems if you put copper coins in your bird bath, they don't get as icky. While there is a little bit of ick in the top pic.
The icky stuff doesn't stick to the bath, it can just be easily rinsed out, filled with fresh water and them dump the coins back in. Mum says it is a good use for the pennies!

That is all for this week. Love, Virginger, Glimmer and Trooper.

I'd never heard that about keeping the bird bath clean.

Sometimes, while sitting on the deck with the 'o' cats in the early morning, or later at night...I swear I can hear the worms moving around in the yard! I know, I know...don't call the men in the white coats, 'cause The Hubby hears 'em too...
