We have many projects around and inside the house. But with our busy schedule and the unpredictable weather, lots of them have been put off for later.
I took photos of my op shop finds (table clothes), some sneak peaks of our winter garden and the vintage cups and saucers which I purchased from Madelief ( from Rotterdam).
Winter is the time when the flying foxes visit us at night, they feed in the gum trees just above us, gorging on the nectar from the flowers. Their squawking and fighting can go on the whole night. In the morning we are woken by the sound of Rainbow Lorikeets in the native plants outside our window. We utilised our suburban block by creating a balanced scheme of native garden (to attract native wildlife), veggie beds, citrus trees, fruit trees, annuals, bulbs, climbers, succulents, roses and herbs. All our time and hard work has resulted in a most promising and productive organically sustainable garden.
Wishing everyone a safe and happy weekend.
The broccoli is almost ready for picking.
