GARDEN PARTY DAY

no flowers but some hexies for The Adopted Sisters Garden.


my hands and mind have been on other things.  Even tho yesterday would have been the most perfect day for a Garden Party.

The weather being so fair, some work was needed in the garden.  I like to start in September so that its looking good for Christmas/January/February when its so hot and its just nice to enjoy,

So a lot of weeding, feeding and mulching was in order.

Of course The Scot has been working in his Veggie Garden.



Last Year saw a very sad site of the Aggies, so before Winter we dug them up and replanted.   So yesterday we weeded, fed and mulched.






The Native Plant on the left is a Grevillia and already has started attracting the native birds.  I will try to capture a photo of them feeding.




The goldfish are showing signs of activity and demanding more food, I hope we don't get too many more babies.  At last count we had 14 fish.
I am trying to talk The Scot into letting me paint the back wall and make it a feature to hang those bromiliades from, the ones that grow on pieces of wood.   So far no luck as with the chooks.

And this is what the Scot likes with homemade vanilla icecream, for his lunch.   Well only one of them.

What a lot of work you got done, even if it wasn't the stitching kind. Your prepared hexies will grow into something beautiful, I'm sure.

You have been really busy one way or another - shame about the chooks and painting creation but hey, less work eh?

Your flowers and clamshells are lovely, so is your garden. What a beautiful quilt with that blue border! In front of it father and his Princess, what a pity your children live so far from you.
