Dogs & Spring....

The little Airedale is now kitted out with a smart green coat and a bed and blanket to sleep on.  As soon as he has a bowl and ball, he will be going on Etsy to look for a new home.

Of course, on days like today, some dogs don't bother with beds - a warm place in the sun on the carpet does just fine!

I've spent the past 4 days sorting out the mess that was my garden - some hard work involved there!  Yesterday I visited the garden centre and bought a few plants including this rather pretty anemone.

Finally, after all this Spring sunshine my tomatoes have started pulling up their little socks and growing properly.  These are the yellow hanging basket variety which seem to be doing the best so far.  The larger varieties are still quite straggly.  We may be catching up with Soggibottom's plants yet!  Of course, the real test is to see which one of us gets a tomato first, so it's still up for grabs....

LOL My cats do the same but either on the table in the garden or the window sill. Your seedlings are looking great. xoxo
