Easter Greetings from the Hollow! I have been very busy these last 2 weeks, and so have a few others:
The lovely Mathilda has been trying to become a mommy for 7 years, according to her former mistress; but to no avail. Alas, sitting on unfertilized goose eggs will not produce goslings. Since she moved into the Hollow, we had hoped that the GANDERS would help out a bit... but they are confirmed bachelors and have no amorous inclinations towards her. Nevertheless, she built a nest and proceeded to SIT on 3 plastic balls she found in the yard a red ball, a blue ball and a yellow ball...poor dear. I removed the balls and replaced with fertile duck eggs. In about 3 more weeks, we expect dear Tilly will become the mommy she has always wanted to be.
The winter weather has at long last relented and Peggy and I have been cleaning the messed up gardens... Peggy only picks up the weed seeds and the grubs; I do all the hard work.
I am doing a series of Garden Videos for beginner gardeners and those interested in cottage gardening. I have SO many garden beds, I decided that filming each one will encourage me to tidy and renew each bed and perhaps I can impart what little I know of gardening through my own trial and error. I had bit of a cold and kept sniffing throughout the entire video, please excuse me for that.
Perhaps you may wish to plant a new garden bed for Easter, or resurrect a less than perfect garden, as I have done in this video. Have fun and get your hands dirty! Much Joy to you all.
