Chefgärtner / Head gardener
Here he comes, the head gardener of the Gwundergarten. And as you can see there is a lot of work to do.
While some are still deep asleep...
... and others are looking for a new home in the country...
... the guy with the mad look has completely different problems: it itches. Does your cat behave the same? They always get that strange look...
... then they start to lick like mad, after that...
... they try it with scratching and if this doesn't help, they finally come to their humans to get scratched until the itch stops. Yes, while we are good for nothing else, at least we can scratch them well. Finally the therapy worked and we were ready to start with the garden jobs.
Ehm, well, you can start I've got more important business to do.
Oh look, I guess my yellow peonies will finally flower this year. After a two years break it just has to.
But with my rose Flagstaff I'm not really amused. I didn't prune the roses yet, but seeing how badly it was damaged I just had to use the secateurs. I hope it will produce another shot... we will see.
I can't get enough of my Helleborus. They are the absolute stars in my garden at the moment.
I had to free the crocus from the brown leaves. Really, I ask myself where all those leaves came from. In fall I carried at least 100 bags full of leaves into the wood (well at least if felt like a 100) and now another 10 bags. Sometimes I believe, that a rather naughty gnome carry them back from the woods during night *grrr*.
But I'm lucky to have help from the head gardener. Here he explains me how to prune the hydrangea Annabelle.
After that he watched carefully that I did it the right way.
Sometimes he just had to lend a paw :o). I had to use the secateurs carefully because Noah is rather quick with putting his paw between. Phew, he is always ready for a game.
Head gardener is checking a suspect looking hole.
I know that there is something in it!
Arrrrrg... can't reach it!!!
Got you, you dangerous weed, you!
And this is how we look after work.
Any questions *LoL*? Well, you don't want to know how I looked but let me tell you I needed a bath to soak in.
Habt ein genussvolles Gartenwochenende!
Have a lovely weekend in the garden!
