Just my garden..................

This maybe my last post but it's the 1st July so if they are going to take down the old system this shouldn't be allowed so we will see .
It is just the garden and it's the middle of winter so not looking it's best  but pretty good for the nights we have been having, and now it's getting dark.
My herbs are almost up to the fence top
Lots of growth everywhere but no flowers.
The street is quite that's lovely but not normal.

Lost wedding photos.

Two stories in a couple of days unusual for me but my wedding photos proofs have turned up after been missing for about 45 years they are tiny little photos I took them along to The Camera House they produced three very nice photos they are black and white.

And the beer fairy and I are very young.
Because I didn't have a big photo I had a go at painting us.


 This was done a fair way back but am still having trouble with people the hardest thing to paint.
I am still getting messages to say blogs are changing I have tried the new system and don't like it does this mean I be off the air or can we still use the old one?

Just hanging around the house.



I have a very relaxing loungeroom or maybe we are super boring.

At least I get a grin when Bo Peep wakes up well it is a long drive from the farm.
I finished my blue wren picture.


This was given to us after we were married it was a decanter with a bottle in it for spirits which broke many years ago  but it has been in my garden for some time but it needed a facelift so after a paint job and small repair it is as good as it was when new all I need now is some horses.
Up  the back is a real mess never used in the summer but this winter is so cold this is the warmest place in the backyard so a good cut back  and clean out is a good idea.

I v'e done the cut back but the clean up hasn't happened yet.
This is a bright red hibiscus but it didn't look to good and hasn't flowered in two years so a hair cut might help and a feed.
I filled up the garden bin so time to stop now,  the boss did not seam to pleased.

I'm almost finished this painting this staying at home gives me more time to paint.

Back to the old system

Well I gave it a go and it was so confusing so back on the old one. I had all the photos lined up and tried to save them and they all disappeared by that time I was ready to throw the computer out the window so better the devil you know than the one you don't,

This is my latest painting which I don't mind but not sure what that red reflection is in the photo.
And this is a cockroach that climbed up the lace curtain in the loungeroom there is a spider attached he raced down the curtain killed the cockroach and tried to take it undercover to eat it but as he was only a third of the size and couldn't move it, he was only a small house spider and I was surprised that he could kill a cockroach  but there you go both came to a sticky end spiders and insects are allowed in my garden but not to happy with them in the house.



We  had a lovely rainbow but faded a bit by the time I got the camera.
Another painting

The magies new home stuck in candle wax so they don't fall over maybe the hit the turps when I not looking.

Just some garden pictures
Some are in pots and some are growing in pallets filled with dirt

Sitting in the sun The beer fairy is very good at this.


We have done a bit of home stuff lately.
Put the drainhole plug in in the bathroom I don't like tiles on the bathroom floor to cold and sometimes to slippery so we have wood .
and painted the fan blades since put back the light fixture
and half cleaned the oven not the racks yet.

I finished this painting .

Oh I give up


I looked it up and it's been a month since I did a blog I've been out and about and had visitors but taken very few pictures, so I will scoot around today and show you any new changes, my magpies and kookaburra had a new coat of paint they were going rusty they need a spruce up every couple of years. The kookaburra does not fool the wild kookaburras but often a magpie will check my tin ones out, and go away very upset, one knocked him over so now they are sitting on a tree stump in some melted candle wax .Well this is it I cant' download my photos at at the moment I have a upgraded facebook and a new blog upgrade and nothing works very well or I'm not doing it right I'M about to give up on the whole thing.

Living in Lockdown and potting in the garden.

Today I am having a bit of a rave about c19 everyone else is talking about it non stop it kills old people everything kills old people we are all on our last legs and we know it why they want to go on cruises with a lot of other old people I am at a loss maybe it is expected and everyone says go on a trip spend your money before you die. I've been on a few trips enjoyed them but that was a while back when i had more energy now it is a bit of a effort to wander over to Woolies and carry the shopping home but I'm still doing it,  good exercise.
I was listening to the radio this morning Allan Jones of all people it was his turn I change it every few days to get a variety of music and different opinions, normally he is ranting and raving about things that matter to him but today he made sense. He didn't last long the next day it was about how good he was so back to ABC radio. Anyway given up in watching the news on tele just get radio reports now.

I will be glad when everything is back to normal again am missing visits to the shops and usually catch up with my mate Barbara most weeks everything is out of the question but buying food and supplies and a walk around the block.


Bow peep who now lives on a farm 5 hours down south of Sydney had to get a day pass to travel up to Sydney, you need to explain where you are going and why and are only allowed to go if it is considered you have a valid reason, but I guess it is all for the best.



It was a dropping week last week first this pot but I do like it so glued it back together  looks ok from one side but the other side is a bit rough  so that side will face the wall.

See what I mean.

One of the fairy houses needed a new roof paddle pop sticks did the job, and a new paint job.
The other one just a paint job on it's roof it's a log of wood so no real damage ever happens to it.
A rearrange in the fairy garden and a general tidy up.

the asian garden is very small these days a few breakages over the years.
My fairies are just to big for the houses I will have to make a bigger one I will let you know how I go with that .



A bit of sun in the side garden



and the boss was here to over see any gardening.
