Winter sunshine.

Would you believe it the middle of winter, wonderful sunshine but it did bucket down most of the week before can't complain about the weather now.

Drummy pecks at your legs who knows why but she also pecks at the washing on the clothes line and talks to it, she is a very odd chicken.



Does any one know what this is and does it flower. BO Peep gave it to me he said it had a wonderful flower but he can't remember what it looks like or what it is, I've had it a couple of years and so far nothing.,
My new path, this wood is treated so can't be burnt so I've started to build paths with it



Might have enough to do this area too, usually just put bark on it but that doesn't last very long it breaks up and becomes mulch quickly.
My daughter, we all went baby shopping and to Cosco is that spelt right and Spotlight I did get some  bamboo blend wool there.
Life was not ment to be easy unless you are a cat.
I bought these home from my daughters place after a coat of paint they look a lot better one done two more to go.
The garden was very waterlogged but drying out fast.




Building a new path, there were puddles everywhere when we had our heavy rain.

The beer fairy checking out some old Playboys he found in the shed, there are many, I said you know those ladies are most likely in their 60's now, he said well the haven't aged in his mind. I think Drummy wants a look too.

  5. Only you Merle would have not insisted the old Playboys were chucked out years ago. I really like the timber block path. I guess it rocks a bit, as do old timbers on piers. What you were seeking identification for is called Plantus Strappyus.

  8. Your garden looks fairly free of weeds.
    Nothing like a good rain for the garden as long as it doesn't flood..

    1. I've noticed a few of my comments have appeared twice, things are a bit wonky here too.
      We had a fellow sitting out on the path playing with our phone lines the other day things have got a bit better since but with all this rain it might go off here too, does not like wet feet my internet and phone.

  14. That little girl statue in your garden in so cute, Merle. It's hard to believe it's winter there when it's summer here and getting sooooo hot. That's a cute picture of your daughter. Winter sunshine can be nice sometimes.
