This month's features
This is another of those articles by a bewildered gardener (me) who thought she knew everything...
May was the month when the new kitset garden shed was supposed to arrive. The publicity claims one does not have to be a builder to erect the thing. Hmm... We'll see - in June...
Oh dear. I'm all in a dither not knowing what to spend my latest nursery gift voucher on...
Roses seem to be compulsory in the Moosey newsletter. This month the rose I've chosen is a tough, frilly pink rugosa.
Many gardeners have to burn their dry garden rubbish in autumn, or fall. But few could write a whole page of interesting blither on this basic, boring task - and provide time in motion photographs. Hmm...
6. Plant of the Month : Yellow Chrysanthemums

Here's the perfect advice for the mature, creative realist who really loves doing things, and needs to keep trying to do things... Relax - the word 'success' isn't even mentioned!
12. Searching for Moosey : rustic garden bench
- rustic garden bench
- Hee hee... Yet another rustic garden bench joins the Moosey Garden. This one is the wobbliest one yet.
13. Coming up this month : A summer holiday in the middle of winter. Yippee!
