Australia Day

Last Monday we celebrated Australia Day, as our pre-Australia day celebration we headed to the beach and had friends over for a barbecue dinner. I didn't want to inundate you with beach photos, so I thought I would share photos of our garden instead. 

Our kitchen garden has not been too bad this summer, crystal apple cucumber had been productive during December but has finished its season. Butter beans are still producing abundantly while beetroot and zucchini are almost ready for harvesting, and as of the spinach and lettuces they are the star of the season. Thank you dear friends for stopping by and for your thoughtful messages. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I'm joining Bernideen for Friends Sharing Tea Sandi for Tea Time Tuesday


  1. Beautiful photos! I just became your newest follower!

  2. So nice to see your lovely colourful summerpictures of delicuous self grown vegetables and flowers while we have here snowy, gloomy and wet cold days.

  3. Wow! What a truly beautiful garden! It is so abundant in both flowers and veggies. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous photos!

  4. I like your produce and your flowers.

  5. Oh, Aida, your pretty pictures of your beautiful garden's bounty and blooms makes me yearn for the sweet charm of summer days, floral scents, and succulent veggie dishes! So enjoyed this little collection of adorable photos! Happy Australia Day, my friend!:))

    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead, full of sunshine and smiles!


  6. Hello Aida,

    Lovely shots of your garden, love the Lily and the garden produce. I had to smile when I saw the sign on your teapot, so cute.

    Happy days.

  7. Oh, how wonderful it looks with summer holiday! Here it is dark, cold and rainy. Longing for some warmth.
    Have a good week!
    xoxo Ingrid

  8. I saw your Australia Day on one of my other friend's post that lives in Australia. Such a wonderful day. The red and white flowers are unusual looking and pretty. Your garden vegetables and flowers are wonderful, Aida. I can't wait to plant some roses this spring at our new home. I'm wondering what month is best to do this. Always a pleasure to see bits of your home. I love your "Hello is it tea you're looking for?" teapot.

    Happy February, friend.

    love, ~Sheri

  11. That's a fantastic harvest from your garden! And such lovely flowers too.

  12. Hi Aida! I love your Polish pottery! Aw! I can't wait for flower season here! Your garden is divine!

  13. Aidi:
    You are missed out here in teapot land and so I came back to just say hi! Aida, isn't it funny the different seasons we are all in around the world. I am amazed at flowers in Australia and going into fall when it snows everyday here. Computer problems can be very challenging! Just saying hi!
