Thought Number 10 A Big Thank You to my Herd of of Lovely Blogits

Hereford Cow & Calf www.thinkingcowgirl.wordpress.com

T & N’s cow Woodbine and this years calf.

I’d just like to say a big thank you to thinkingcowgirl followers, contributors, readers, and one time visitors for taking the time to peruse my cow and nature ramblings. I really appreciate the time you spend here.

I was thinking the other day how pleased I am that I abandoned the blight ridden tomatoes this year in the polytunnel and grew Dahlias instead. I hope they will brighten up your day.

  5. What beautiful blooms! It is sad that the very first thing that I think of when I see flowers like that is “Would the possums eat those?”…sigh…I have to be very careful about what we plant into our unprotected gardens because they are prone to nocturnal visits from our rambunctious feral natives who love to party. The possums eat our roses and the wallabies eat just about everything else. They don’t like buddleia’s (but they do like jumping around in them flattening them). I am guessing that dahlias might suffer the same fate as the Lilium speciosum that took advantage of us clearing out their overcrowded prison to grow beautifully this year right up until the wallabies noticed them and munched them back to stalks :(. The little sods are tag-teaming on our fully enclosed veggie garden! The wallabies are pushing the sides of the bird netting we used to cover over the veggies and scoffing whatever greenery is foolish enough to poke through and the possums are using the top like a trapoline and bouncing up and down until the bird netting sags in the middle and are eating the tops of my beans! Time to do a bit of research on perennials that they DON’T like methinks…sigh…horticulture is such a thankless profession… 😉
