Scans 844

Dad, Patch and me in February 1969!

I bought eight Dolly tubs full of plants from a bakery that was closing on Angelsey around four years ago. All eight for twenty pounds! The only downside was, I had to fetch them!! Boy, were they heavy.I have used two at the side of the arch , which came from our shop, Summer Strawberries in Barmouth!

Scans 861Today is a fresher,sunny day and just the sort of day to get out into the garden and make tidying progress! With four Dachshunds as ‘helpers’ it takes twice as long…but I wouldn’t be without them!

We have had Dachshunds for thirty six years.Mostly wire haired miniatures. We did have a Basset in the eighties as well….would love another!

When I arrived in the world, back in the fifties there was already a dog present. Penny was a mongrel whose mother was  a sealyham terrier. She soon made it clear that she was not about to give up her pouffe to this interloper!

Later in the sixties, I had a spell in hospital. When I was discharged I arrived home to be presented with a ‘Jack Russell terrier..although, Patch looked more like a miniature old English sheepdog, a breed that my dads aunt had bred.
