A quick update with what has been happening in my garden in the last couple of weeks. We have been blessed with continuous rain and the garden is blissfully rewarding us with so much produce. Summer crops have been replaced with cooler weather veggies. I have a stack of books lined up which I planned to read, fortunately I'm about to start my third. I'm trying to spend less time on the web and more on getting my hands dirty. But I can't let a good photo-moment get away as I go my merry way. Below are some of the shots I have handy.
Thank you dear friends for visiting and leaving your kind and sweet comments. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead.
Citrus or orchard butterfly sheltering under the pergola.
Roses in abundance
There are things in life which are hard to live without, tea, flowers and books are a few of them.
I'm happy picking and filling my basket with these goodies.
Pale-pink rose, snapped of its branch looking radiant against the tradescantia and catmint.
Our driveway is lined with these yellow daisies.
Surprise-surprise this foxglove continues to delight
I believe that in every drop of rain, out comes a beautiful bloom.
Hubby celebrated his birthday, and I was inspired to decorate this store-bought sponge gateau choc cake.
Since he was tiny, this blue tongue lizard has been a constant visitor to our property
Mandevilla or commonly called sun parasol, is a climber which trails along the deck. Perfect for spiders to create their little homes.
Australia has variety of native flowering plants, and this Grevillea Superb is one of them. Native parrots and birds alike feed on their nectar.
This Calamondin is teeming with little round golden fruits, I picked some before they all fall to the ground as they can get water logged.
An Emperor mandarin, plump, sweet and juicy. Prolific yet susceptible to fruit flies. We are lucky to yield a dozen a year.
Red Shahtoot mulberry- might look a little hairy and creepy but its sweetness tops every berry in the scenery.
I've searched and searched from far and near and at long last I found the perfect Vintage French Roses Toile fabric to re-cover my gold leaf-plated lamp.
And as always, my hands are full and preoccupied but I dare not forget my love of flowers and share them with friends whenever possible.
Well, my friends I'm signing off for now, as I go and search for that next book. But I will be back soon to update you with what's happening in my nook.
