Goslings

Luckily I had my camera on me today and managed to get a close up of these goslings by the lake.  Some adult Canada Geese were keeping guard near by so I moved about very gently as not to cause alarm.  Just a few feet away on dry land some goslings were sheltering under their mother's wing not yet ready to face the outside World.  I feel like that sometimes!

Today is the last day of May.  Tomorrow we are into the sixth month of the year.  I have so much catching up to do in the garden.  So many seeds not sown and so many plants eaten by slugs and snails before they even had a chance to shine.  Sometimes I feel like giving up but sometimes I just plough on.  I hope to plough on through June and have a garden I can be proud of.

I noticed two little geese families in my park before I went on holiday but I didn't have my camera with me unfortunately. I love goslings, they are my favourite of all the birds in the park. Beautiful photo Simone. :)

I still have potatoes in my greenhouse ready to go in and I have NO tomato plants at all yet....way behind this year! Still I am sure everything will turn out fine in the end!

How cute!
Isn't that what gardening is all about? Having to steer through all the different weather problems and trying to come out on top! Probably one of the reasons I don't do much!

The goslings are so sweet! It is one of those years when things seem to get delayed or held back by this strange weather - I'm sure if you plough on you will get there in the end:)

They are so sweet. I just sowed the packet of seed which said sow before 2008, perhaps the answer the slugs haven't eaten them because they were stale.............

simone... you will recall from my blog over the last few years ive had a huge slug and snail problem. I think im now slowly winning though and thats down to the fact i start every day, very early, with a snail and slug collection. I go out while they are still around and before they go off to hide for the day! I am both disgusted/horrified and jubilant by my 'harvest' each day and its paying off, i am seeing a lot less damage now
