Looking for winter sunshine.

Winter is coming, time to rearrange the garden so we get winter sunshine. Winter is the time to work in the garden summer is to hot and there are spiders. My little chinese garden doesn't change as it pretty much ok all seasons and that little deck is the cat sunning area., they don't like change.
 The pond is my next project I've had it for a while and done nothing with it, but I did dig a hole but that's pretty much filled in now, so will have to start again.

 The clothes line is sagging if it gets any lower we will have brown borders on all sheets.
 This is our winter sitting spot you get 4 or 5 hours of direct sun here in winter, much to hot in summer but wonderful in winter.
 Drummy is cleaning all the time now, as you can see not many wing feathers
 no tail feathers
 This is a beautiful flower to see on a Autumn day.
 And always the bogie is in flower.
 Lots of jungle here.
 My little patch of sky.

Bye for now I'm off to my daughters place for a few days.

  1. I love your garden Merle. It takes me back to my childhood. You need a prop for your clothesline. Do you remember the crop man?? I do. He used to come around to our house in a horse and cart. He sold rabbits too. Dead ones for eating not live ones for pets. Oh for the old days, aye?? Enjoy your few days with your daughter. Lynn, Charlie's Mum.

    1. A prop not a bad idea.
      Years ago we had a fruit and vegie man that called, yes he did have a horse and cart but traded them in for a pick up truck, we had a rabbit man too and a milkman, baker and postman now only a postman and he is part time now and they say things have got better but as a kid I liked all the deliveries, my mum was mostly at home she never went out to work so I she have various people to talk to all day.

    Love your garden - and it looks as if it needs much less work at the moment than mine.

  3. I love your winter sitting spot, mine is my front porch which catches the sun but is protected from the southerly winds.
    Have a nice visit away.

    1. Always good to have a sun trap in winter, you don't want to miss out on your dose of sunshine.

    Have a super little break - autumn in Sydney is my favourite season and the idea of sunshine in winter is a foreign thought to me now! YAM xx

  10. The birds of paradise are the most unusual looking flowers. They are pretty and look like they have personalities. You see them a lot in So Cal. :)
