A walk to the doctors

It's a nice rainy day but only light so I will walk to the doctors.
Starting off not much traffic this morning not that I blame them it is a bit wet.
 This is the wonderful garden but the photos never look too good I think it's too much white on white to show up well, I will try again on a sunny day.

 But this is a dragon fruit vine, love the fruit.

 The tiny shopping centre next to the doctors, I had to have blood tests so this is handy for breakfast, I had coffee and a doughnut not very healthy but I was starving.
 This garden has more little figures in it than I've seen in any one else's.
 Deep people live here but they sound like fun.


 I'm going to make one of these, I had a go before and my effort wasn't much good and it fell apart.


Don't know what this is but it's the middle of winter and it flowering maybe a bit confused.

  1. I have never, ever seen a gnomathon like that one. Wow.
    And the plants in the 'white garden' look fascinating.
    Good luck with the blood tests.

  3. Local shops for local people. Nice.

    Doesn't the main plant die after a cactus or succulent flowers like that?

    1. They all know each other, they all say hello and chat even chatted to me, one lady chatted to me while I was drinking my coffee she was waiting for the post office to open.
      Some of my broms die after flowering but they have babies and produce two.

  4. I love the gnome yard, very cute collection! It is great that the doctors office is in walking distance. The tall cactus is a neat plant. I hope your blood work comes back good. Have a happy day!

    1. It not a very old collection and I guess no one steals them, I put a pot plant out in the rain a while back and it walked so no more pot plants in the front yard.

    1. I took about 6 photos but they were very blurry, maybe the rain as it was very misty, they have two white dragons at the doorway but couldn't get them in a photo so will have another go when the sun is out.
