Lovely summer days in the garden.

My blog is changed not sure why and I forgot to take photos of the twins, I forgot the camera so no update this week.
They had a very busy week this week their  first bus ride, first visit to a cafe and they went to my daughters work and had lots of cuddles they have a busier social life than me but that's not hard.
I spent most of the week in the garden mucking around the fairy garden was relocated it was in need of a weeding and clean up, everyone was pleased with their new home.
They were under the trees  but now the broms are living there, these were all in one pot so happy to get a bit more room.
The snail and her baby got a new paint job, so did turt he doesn't look to happy.


 The chinese garden is next it needs a upgrade.



 I like the shadows in late afternoon.
 Nice to wonder around and point and shoot you never know what you will end up with.
 Sun and shadows everywhere.




 Drummy keeps me company.


 Lots of new growth everywhere in winter there are gaps but all filling up fast.
 Drummy's friend was overlooking everything , he got a paint job too
 The grape vine is going well no grapes yet.
 My wooden paths are weathering to a nice shade of grey.
 A fire ban on now so no more fires.

 More shadows

Well that's it this week.

  1. Love wandering your garden with you.
    The twins lead a more active social life than I do too.

    1. Well you must have a active social life when you are young as when you are old you just don't have the energy or I don't.

    1. The fire ban is most likely not permanent but we have had some very hot weather and not much rain this month so things are tinder dry at the moment.

  9. The new look it good.
    I recognize one plant that we grow inside...mine isn't doing well.
    Nothing like the late afternoon long shadows, creatures different looks and not as harsh.

  10. It's looking good, the fairies new home is very well made. I need to rearrange a few things too, my dusty miller is way overgrown and taking up too much space, I don't know if I need to cut it back or relocate it, it's a bit big to dig up. I like the new paint on the snail shells, it looks bronzed. Drummy's friend is looking fresh too.
    I love your red gate.

  11. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

    2. Okay, it will not be displayed until you are sure. I do not know how it would hurt. You do realize that everyone with internet access is this entire world can come by already--right?

  15. your garden looks so lush and green, everything is dying here as winter takes hold.
    Drummy's friend looks like a very calm quiet fella lol,,
    I never remember to bring the camera so I understand you completely, the little babies are really making strides, first bus ride, first cafe visit, time flies so quickly with babies, sometimes I wish we could slow it down, I have heard of people using olive oil for furniture polish and the spray can sounds perfect! The wood looks beautiful,,
