Back to our garden

 This week I got around to lifting the canopy of our fir tree and tulip tree.  This has opened up more of the garden to sunlight.

 The last of the potatoes have now been lifted.  The end of the crop always has a number of tubers that are unusable due to slug damage.  I now need to be imaginative with the host of little spuds.
 The new fence has settled down and with the growth of plants, it looks as if it has always been there now.  The new clematis climbing up the stick in the corner has just opened its first flower.

 This little chappie looks like a garden ornament in this picture.
It is a different story when he is on someones arm.  It is not often that you get to meet a kookaburra in Stoke!  What a laugh.....
