Just removed a tick from a rather uncooperative Ruby. I hate them. Stamping on it didn’t kill it so I whacked it with my rolling pin!!!
I get them occasionally on me, blasted things. Cotton thread works quite well but as we now have a choice of two removers, shall use one of them in future.
Glorious weather isn’t it. Unfortunately, 3 out of my 5 peonies didn’t make it through the winter. First time in 31 years I have lost them, so it must have been wetter than normal, even in our gravel garden.
