In the Garden

I thought I'd share some photos I took this afternoon whilst in the garden. We've had a busy week re-mulching the gardens in preparation for a hot summer. Also, we had about 700m2 of turf laid today. Living on acreage is wonderful, but it's expensive too. Everything you do is on a LARGE scale.

As you can imagine, they smell divine .....

He was asking so nicely for his mince

Something that gives me so much joy is being able to walk into my own garden and select flowers and foliage to arrange in the house. Here is what is in our home this week.

I have absolutely no idea what this is called, so if you could help me out, I'd appreciate it.


Wishing you a wonderful weekend.


  1. Great photos, love the meerkats, so cute! I lived in Australia as a child so seeing the kookabura photo has just brought loads of memories back.

  3. Gee I love Kooka's. They are just amazing birds to watch, Sharnel, can you email me your postal address so I can get this prize off to you next week? Thanks so much. Simone

  4. I love your bunches of flowers - being able to pick flowers from the garden is one of the wonderful things in life! The white flowers in the vase are Indian Hawthorn. Leigh

  5. Yah for Spring and flowers! (and my hayfever - not!) I have been crazily cutting up my garden too! I love that it comes out of our own gardens...
