Well, I do look out for quirky things for the garden, preferably cheap and quirky, and you can’t get much cheaper and quirkier than a 3D foam dinosaur for £10 but bought with a 25% discount, thus making him a mere £7.50. I suspect not many people have dinosaurs lurking in the garden along with their fairies and chickens and other more usual decorative things (although on a windy day he would be flying rather than lurking if not tethered like a pet dragon), but I guess it’s unlikely to catch on…..
When not reassembling piles of bones this afternoon I managed to bag up the leaves swept into heaps yesterday, possibly the last time this needs to be done, and picked off by hand the bulk of the leaves covering the species snowdrop border. The little beauties deserve the best care and attention I can give them, so don’t want to risk allowing any nasties lurking under leaf debris. I didn’t check for green spikes at every label, but am pleased to see that most new bulbs from two years ago are definitely putting on growth after keeping a low profile last season, thus encouraging me to remain patient with those that were new just last season.
