Lots of rain and a sunny break in the garden.


Pidge is collecting sticks and building a nest could he be a she now if he lays a egg I will be amazed.
Maybe he is building a home for his old age
This little fellow visits, my cats don't mind too much.

They are happy to see odd cats but don't come around to much.
The sun is out for a bit





Someone broke my bird bath

Guess I will fix it tomorrow.



The stray and kidney are ignoring each other.


We have had 3weeks of rain and this thing has just gone mad,  I've been chopping it down all morning and still lots to go.


More rain on the way, the birds are still here, some one is feeding them, we have a mad cat and bird lady up the road maybe she is the feeder.
So much growth everything is so green.
Leeroy wants things moved off her tables she into sleeping on tables lately.

More fruit on the monsterio [how do you spell it] this time I will bring inside to ripen a rat ate the last ones.
More birds in the tree.

and on the back shed

A fair bit of pruning back lots of growth.
Still a nice place to sit and think.

    1. That vine is everywhere at the moment.
      Washing is not getting done at my place but I'm only there on the weekend and the beer fairy doesn't know how to use the washing machine and doesn't want to learn so bad luck if he runs out of clothes.

    yes that vine is a nasty one... if you can find the root, that's the place to attack! Monstera Deliciosa fruit is yummy, hope you succeed in getting some this year. I don't recall seeing your dragon or snail before - are they new? ... and why am I thinking the new visitor may be calling in quite often??!! &*> YAM xx

    1. It is growing in with the bogie vine and it has big spikes on it so I'm just pulling it out on the outside.
      The dragon was inside and the snail had a paint job it was a bit nothing so I jazzed him up a bit.

  5. I can't believe how green and lush everything is there. Guess that is what happens with rich warm air and lots of rain. We still have snow on the ground here.
    I always get a kick out of your animals. xo Diana

  6. We have had virtually no rain here. I would be happy to take some of yours.
    Love your dragon. And your lovely garden.
    Jazz would NOT be happy to have his space invaded. Your cats have much nicer natures.

  7. So much rain, and we have had none. Cats are funny the way they ignore each other, as if, if I can't see you, you are not there. Your garden is looking very lush. Gardens here look very dry with brown grass.

  8. Like EC we have had very little rain here at the foothills of the Barrington's but there is just a tinge of green now. Your garden is beautiful the monsterio is a fruit I've never tried.

  9. Your garden is a wonderful green jungle with lots of pretty surprises. I'm thinking of planting a couple of monsteras and a few philodendrons like I had in my previous garden. I'll have to rip out a few things first though, but which things?

  14. The rain is making everything grow in your garden. It rained a lot here too, but we've gotten some sunny days as well. I always enjoy looking at your garden, Merle. I wish I had one here, but this is a temporary home, and no back yard right now.
