A few days in the sunshine, strange characters in the shopping centre and lots of work.


I love Autumn sunshine, we had a great week warm sunshine with cool mornings.
It's just about right and easy to do some cleaning up after all the rain.
This is my new path.
And many broms need repotting.
This is a bit blurry but I like the sun and shade but for some reason I'm not too good at taking these photos but this is the garden in morning light.




In Drumsticks sleeping area there is a lilly but it must taste mighty good because she likes to eat it so it's protected, when it gets older maybe it will not taste so good.
My gift from from the visiting Kiwies who here for dinner a couple of blogs back lovely colour but it's up on the table because it might be tasty too.
The front needs a tidy up too , Kidney is waiting for me to do things so far  all I've done is sit in the sun and think but I do have my garden scrap bin ready.
It's a bit of a jungle.

The fence is disappearing, well that ok it needs a paint.


Most things are going very well




 Yesterday I  had to go shopping so did everyone else, it's school holidays so there was a show in Westfields. Now Rocky and Bullwinkle were my favourite cartoon as a child and we have the new show Mr Peabody and his boy Sherman in the movies so they were in a exercise and dance session so I took a few pictures.

 But this girl in red just did not approve of my taking photos is that not a disapproving look.
 The house on the corner has all the framework up for the second story, glad I have many trees, I like my back yard to be private you never know we might start sun baking in the nude.

And next door is all finished now, just finishing the driveway and the front footpath, this was happening at 7am this morning and all finished by 9am but by then I was wide awake, but I knew they were coming so I went to bed very early last night.

  1. Love, love, love your jungle. And autumn. Such an invigorating time of year - which is just as well because there is a LOT of work needed in our garden at the moment. If I weed every day until Christmas I might be on top of it. Perhaps.

  4. Is that gorgeous flower a 'frangipani' or something like that? I can never get over how lush your garden looks.

  6. The cyclamen is gorgeous! I had one once and planted it under a shady tree where it did very well. Then we moved...I see your frangipani is flowering well now.
    Let the geranium completely cover the fence and never worry about painting it again!

    1. I will take your advice and plant it under a tree as I have never been able to keep them for very long in the past.

  9. I love autumn, but we are just starting spring. Your gardens look beautiful! I like how everything is compact like a courtyard setting. Thanks for sharing it all with us.

    Some of the best time in the world, that spent sitting and thinking! That young lady certainly does look disapproving. Your garden is so dappled - I totally understand why you like the light-shade thing. Hope it doesn't too cold too soon for you. YAM xx
