A Good Day

The warm weather continues and is contributing to the urge to spring clean and reorganise stuff. Also the garden is calling and several new vege gardens were dug and built today – Mr T will feel the strain tomorrow. I was in charge of the more gentle tasks, planting a mint in a pot, sowing red onion seeds, watering the outdoor pots (no rain for well over a week!).

It was wonderful to walk around the garden and see everything budding, a very beautiful japonica is starting to flower and huge piles of bulbs, that have been naked since we moved in April, are in vigorous sprout. I can’t wait to spend a summer here, it is such a private space with lots of trees and shadey spots for lounging.

Alfred the Oak

We are very lucky to have this tree in our back yard, I have called it Alfred after the previous owner of the house. We are lucky with the garden in other ways as well – wonderful, wonderful fruit trees, three different apples, plums, grapefruit, oranges, lemons, pear, peach, nectarine, feijoa and a couple of grape vines. Who could ask for more huh?
