A Speedy inspection!

Today we decided not to cut the grass in the front garden as there are lots of wild flower and a mix of Grass's in the lawn and lots of Dandi lions,it was a bit patchy where we had taken out a load of moss so I filled it in with some new grass seed....a Timothy hay mix and watered it in.We won't be cutting it with the mower until the fall as we will harvest it for Speedy...He's already been having the Dandi lion leaves and plantains it will all be done by hand so we had a mini hay field plus it means we won't disturb the wild tunnelling bees too!Here is Speedy doing an inspection of the patchy bits before seeding.

  7. What a treat for the sweet Bunny Boy and for the planet. Just think of all that variety to treasure. I don't know what I would do without you, Rachel and Brandi. If Brandi hadn't told me about Fen's DR entry, I would have never known, and if Rachel hadn't told me to open the packet of pictures, I would have missed out on all this Speedy variety. He has his pastures and I have his pictures. I can only hope he is as pleased as I am. It's really a lot of additional insight into My Nephew, and I got to see him with the Tartan for the official clan of cheekiness. Thank you again, Rachel. They are treasures.

  9. We think Speedy will enjoy the long grass. We have never heard of tunnelling bees. Have a marvellous Monday.

    1. Yes he will,Tunnelling bees are quite rare as their habitat is in decline,so we try to look after them as they nest each year in the garden,The bee's have been in our garden for about 5 years so we must be doing something right for them to stay,xx Speedy's mum

    1. I'll take some photo's today to show the Progress and I will do regular updates,its not a huge lawn but what is growing is like meadow grass with the wild flower so once the filled in patches start to grow is will be perfect and each week I harvest little bits to supplement his greens,xx Rachel
