It's been all work and germs here but things are finally slowing down. I've decided to take a break from the crazy and get back to enjoying the imaginary world I've created for myself. I have a dream or two that needs fulfilling ;)
ANYWAY... here are a few updates to life around Pixie Hill
My fairy mailbox broke. I've repaired it once already but the damned thing just falls apart every time there's a breeze. It could be the barrage of rain we've had, but I think it's probably the goblins who are sad no one ever sends them notes.
This is what happens when you mention any small animal in our house. I said "guinea pig" once and a week later Mr Pixie brought home three. After a short stint in the dining room, they are now living happily outdoors and will soon have a brand new spacious pen. They are Calendula (above), Little Sage...
Our raspberry plants are just about to ripen. We have to keep a close eye on them because the birds will gladly feast on them and leave us nothing at all if we don't get out there quick enough.
The pretty weeds are blooming nicely. I love yarrow... especially this hot pink one.
The comfrey is blooming to. Bees LOVE comfrey and the plant is forever literally buzzing with activity.
The veggies seem to be growing well this year. Just look at that lush cabbage!
And that sweet little curly tendril! We've never had luck with peas but we had a feast last night and there's plenty left on the vine.
Loads of these little mushrooms have been popping up all over the yard this year. They are very sweet looking little things. I just love that long spindly stem with the great huge mushroomed dome.
And here the whole garden looks quite pretty. The constant rains are causing things to bolt quickly and become overgrown as soon as you blink. I like jumbled chaos, the husband prefers neat and tidy rows. Neither one of us is fond of the terrible gangs of mozzies waiting to attack at all times.
The garden looks fabulous! Great photos..that shot of the comfrey is so delightful! Happy summer...you have your own wonderland there to enjoy!ReplyDelete
I love the guinea pigs, too cute!ReplyDelete
It's all lovely, Nichola. We used to have Guineas too! One was a wire haired - dark chocolate and we called him Raisin. I love the wee babies they have. Our guineas loved cucumber peels. Whenever we opened the fridge door, they started churring because they were hoping for cucumbers! What fun they were.ReplyDelete
Very sweet posting. A nice break from the hustle and bustle of the world. Thank you, I loved it all. :)ReplyDelete
Your garden looks lovely! Guinea pigs are the best, aren't they?ReplyDelete
Fantastic garden! Sweet G.pigs. We had an author bring a naked G.Pig to the library this Spring. All the children were in awe.ReplyDelete
