I felt like the white rabbit in Alice and Wonderland today, it was a lovely day, great for gardening- but i had no time. I spent most of the day taxi-ing my two teenage kids here, there and everywhere! I did get a minute to think in the garden and I thought of two things-
1. The two dogs have taken to doing their business outside my patio doors, why I don't know. We live in the country and they have plenty of space. However, it occured to me that I could move their invisible fence and just keep them out of that area, at least to retrain them.
2. the other thing i thought was regarding the same area- it is a lovely space. It is outside the back of the house, the planting has made it quite private and it gets sun and is sheltered. the problem is that in Ireland it just rains so much. The weather is not cold most of the time, just rainy. So I was thinking that if I had away to construct a roof, perhaps of transparent perspex over a nice wood frame, the area would be much more usuable.
And while i drive ny children about, I have plenty of time to think on how these things might be done.......
