Making the most of the sun!

I have been busy in the garden, having a puppy is like having a little child with you. You need eyes in the back of your head!!!!!

My helper!!!

These are the three beds I planned to have finished by the end of the month!! I seem to have mislaid the rake, I expect it is burried in the shed somewhere!!

Had to clean the pond pump out also, so its looking good, plenty of frogs but still no frogspawn! We usually have our first 'clump' about 23rd Feb, so we are on target to be a month behind!!

K came back with us at the weekend for one night to meet him, she is terrified of dogs and has been since a baby, we know exactly what set her off, we went to stay with a friend who had 2 Old English Sheep dogs that never stopped barking the whole weekend! Anyway she loved him although a bit nervous when he did his 'tigger' impressions. (jumping up and down on the spot) I think the small size helped!

He is having a sleep so off to do some more stuff round and about!!


  1. What a little cutie! Puppies and babies are so much alike! But the time flies before you know it. Our "puppies" turned 5 a week ago, and I don't know where the time has gone.

    You have been very busy in your garden. I am working on the big clean up too. This time of year is exciting in the garden.

  2. So cute! - are you tempted to curl up under there with him?

  3. I bet it's such a joy to have him in the garden with you, dogs are such good company. Looks like you've been doing plenty of work on those beds. It will be all systems go soon.

  4. Libby he is gorgeous!
    I love dachshunds, what a sweetie.
    Can't do anything in our yard yet. The ground is still too wet, but looking forward to it.
    I wonder how long it will be before the puppy, gets into the pond..LOL

  5. As a passionate dog lover I can almost smell that sweet puppy breath.....he is just so cute.

    It is good to get outside and feel some sun on the back of your neck, isn't it?

  6. How absolutely beautiful - both your stunning garden and the puppy

  7. Darcy is going to keep you on your toes, I can see that! Isn't it nice to see the sun? It always inspires me to get out in the back yard and get rid of all the winter debris. We are having a lovely week of sunshine, but cold weather is forecast for next week, and even some of those dreaded snow flurries.... oh, I hope not!

  8. Beautiful puppy, dear Libby...and what a lot of preparation you have already done this month :)
