Sowing flower seeds…

around the plot is what I’ve mostly been doing this week.  I’ve sowed cornflowers, cosmos, nasturtiums, sunflowers and viscaria.   This is the flower patch which as you can see already has lots self-seeded Flighty’s favourites pot marigolds growing so I’ve been sowing round the edges and elsewhere.

I’ll go into more detail about the varieties/colours and where they are once I’ve sown everything, and it’s all hopefully appeared.

I’ve seen a fox most days over the past week or so, and it’s also evident that they’ve been on the plot what with paw prints, some disturbed ground and two dead rats.  Last week I watched one prowling and pouncing about in the long grass by the site fence adjacent to the gates. This morning this one was over by the trees along the northern edge of the site.

I think that there are at least two different ones judging by their colouring.  This one is very pale and there’s another that is noticeably dark.

 

Have a good weekend!

    How lovely to have nature lending a hand sowing those flower seeds. I still have Flighty’s Favourites self seeding in my garden as well as lots of honesty. Do foxes do any damage on the plot? It’s nice that you’ve been seeing them more often just lately.

      Jo it certainly is, and often does better than we do. Good for you. Thankfully not generally, although they can be a bit of a nuisance occasionally if they dig or play around. Yes it’s good to see these. xx

    We’ll be looking forward to seeing the results of your seed sowing. They sound like a colorful combination. Two foxes. I wonder if they mark their own territory?

    That’s a lot of marigolds. Can’t wait to see them flowering with their companions.

    Do you think you may have a Lady And The Tramp foxy pair?
    Looks like you are going to have a profusion of blooms in due course.

    Do the foxes do any damage to your crops? Look forward to reading about your flower seed growing.

    You’ve chosen a lovely selection of flowers, Flighty, a few of which are also on my sowing list. I hope the weather doesn’t get too cold next week as I hope to get up to the plot in the evening to prep the flower beds for sowing. Wishing you a good weekend xx

    What a treat seeing your fox! Mum may appear with kitts soon, daughters and sisters often help care for the young. Good to see wildlife thriving. Your faves are doing brilliantly, what a sea of colour you shall have when they and your lovely new additions all flower. Looking forward to seeing that.xxx
