Braving the hounds

A few months back the dogs devastated my patch of garden. It was heart-breaking … so I focused on gardening in pots and my permaculture beds.

Canine Carnage

I live with two delightful puppies, who are full of energy. One of their favourite games involves chasing each other back and forth through my newly established garden, see pics below.
