Great day in the garden with Angus

Well I can't find the bucket for the wishing well so it is now a large pot plant with a roof.

It fits in OK.

It is a lovely  warm day with a cool breeze blowing just perfect for the garden.

Angus visits today so he is checking out anything different.

These have just come out they are small and dainty and a lovely red colour.

A new yucca

The greenery is taking over. 

The sundail says 3o'clock.

Six months ago there was nothing here.

Angus is hoping to find something to eat.

out of luck sorry mate

Try to catch lizards.

Just more garden pictures

We get some visitors but they stay up high when Angus is here.

The beer fairy likes to relax.

We have chimes in the tree, Angus does not like them.

Pige has just come in from his fly.


  1. Hi Merle....looks likes a good day in the garden. Angus is looking very healthy and happy.
    See you soon

    1. Hi Barb,
      The weather was really great that day but it's not so good since, very humid and overcast, yes Angus is looking good he might be a bit fatter after he spends 2 weeks at my place, Lex spoils him.
      Love Merle.....

  2. Wow what a fabulous green space you have there!! And summer is heating up where you are right?? Your dog is adorable!! And wow six months ago nothing was there that is how spring time is here stuff just grows like crazy but then everything dries out and withers in the hot summer heat here. ~Enjoy your garden Love Heather

    1. Hi Heather,
      Yes it's great under the trees but no lawn it just doesn't grow, well that means no mowing and you can't complain about that.
      The dog belongs to my daughter but visits one day and night a week because he get a bit lonely and I miss him, he was at our place as a puppy but moved out when she did.
      Love Merle.....l

  3. I loved seeing your garden photos and your pets, Merle. What a gorgeous group of images. TFS. Thank you also for leaving a comment on my blog. It is appreciated. Hugs, Gayle.

  4. Merle, I think your wishing-well looks good with the pot plant.
    Everything is nice and lush in your garden!
    The bird is pretty on the birdcage - what is it?
    Angus is a smart dog to notice all the changes from one week to the next.
    We had a Great Dane who was like that too.
    Benson knew when I had changed a picture on the wall!

    1. Hi Trish,
      I didn't know you had a Great Dane they are great dogs but oh so big, he sounds clever Angus doesn't notice inside changes very much but out side ones he does.
      The birds on the birdcages are fake ones, every time I try and take pictures of our birds that visit when they are feeding at Pidges bowl they fly away so I put some fake ones around so pidge wouldn't be lonely but I put one near his bowl and he didn't like that so now they sit on the cages.
      Love Merle....

    2. Haha!! Well you fooled me!!
      I still think they're pretty and look great :-D

  5. Nice garden pictures! That Angus makes a good tour guide!

  6. Your garden photos make me feel happy. It would be the perfect place for me to sit and write. I have a tsudent whose mother is from Australia. It is winter here, but the weather isn't cooperating, yet.
