The 'molehills' spotted by Suky in yesterdays post have been growing and growing .....
... and here is Mr Mole, otherwise known as Lovely Hubby.
Barrow full after barrow full he carted over from the soil heap adjacent to the paddock, all sifted and ready to use.
While he barrowed and I cleaned out the henhouse little Charley kept herself amused with acorns and cobnuts.
She's growing fast now and is always on the go, but she's no trouble and is learning all the time.
Soon the new bed was almost filled, and after doing my little gardeners dance of treading backwards and forwards in the soil to compact it, we were almost there. We are planting a Rhododendron bush and some other shrubs and plants to fill in this space in the hedge and make the area safer for the dogs. My heart is in my mouth every time Charley runs in that direction in case she tumbles through onto the road, now hopefully, this will be a visible barrier to stop her in her tracks.
Of course keeping yourself amused while Mum and Dad dig and do silly walks is very tiring ...
... and soon she was flat out snoozing in the sunshine.
Looking as cute as a button while dreaming doggy dreams.
