Winter gardening

006Greeting loyal readers.  It was the shortest day last week and it is the time of year that mummy needs to be out in her garden, planting her garlic bulbs.  Well, today she got off her backside was motivated to plant her garlic.  Of course Me and Nellie assisted her by sitting in her asparagus bed and watching her. It has been very cold today.  Mummy says it is too cold to garden, so she has been busy inside, doing nothing in particular housework.  While mummy was outside she saw this little yellow bird in the garden.  It was a goldfinch.  Here is a photo of one of these little birds.

Not a photo mummy took. She found in at a place called Google images.

Later on in the afternoon mummy and daddy could hear this loud noisy things flying over the valley.  Now loyal readers may not realise that we live within an hours drive of an Air Force base called Ohakea and often planes and helicopters fly over Us.  Here is a photo of a NH90 French helicopter that flew over this afternoon.   Me and Nellie were so good and We didn’t even more from in front of the fire to chase this noisy machine off.  Love Nellie and Jasper. It is almost time for our evening dinner and We must remind mummy of this.

Look S.O.D. has been visiting again.  Who would be naughty enough to get into the rubbish and drag it out all over the place?  Not Me and Nellie.

    You must live on the opposite side of the world from us because we just had our longest day of the year! Be careful with Google Images, most of those photos belong to the people who took them and unless they’re marked for free public use (like many photos on Wikipedia, which you can freely use), you can get sued for copyright infringement, even for non-profitable use on simple things like blogs (people can be greedy sometimes!). Just wanted to let you know – I wouldn’t want to see that happen to anyone!

  3. How good you are that you didn’t chase the plane away! Dinner is much more important! That little bird is darling!
    Mom said to tell you she LOVES garlic! Your Mum must cook with it A LOT to want to plant it.

    We doubt if she would have planted anything without your supervision. What a pretty bird

  6. Sitting in the garden on top of plants is very helpful. I’m sure your mom appreciated the assistance while she was working. I am afraid of all things in the sky. I like to stand on 2 feet and yell at the sky when anything is up there. Mom says the word, “Knock it off.” That means keep going, right…?

    Love and licks,
