    1. It would have been a full day's job but thanks to Nigel's help it made things much easier. Cheers Diane

  2. Wow! What an accomplishment! Bravo! Love the sheep photo!

    1. With the number of cherries on the tree this could become monotonous!! Curious sheep :-)) Take care Diane

  3. Love that Hawkmoth - remarkable insect.

    1. I have to agree they are amazing insects. Cheers Diane

  4. So ambitious yet the winter reward is priceless. Our wildflowers are barely showing but with all the snow melt should put on a good show next month. I think that sheep is squinting at you. ;)

    1. Very ambitious but I doubt if they will last until winter!! The figs and plums I did last year were eaten well withing two months of them being done, too easy to snack on. At least I do not have to worry about them going off if I have not dehydrated enough!!!!! I also think that sheep has a squint LOL. Our wild flowers (and weeds) have taken off with the hot spell we have just had. Have a good day Diane
