Yes There's More.

So sorry if you were waiting for me friends - life suddenly got in the way....I wasn't here , but now I am, so let's continue our walk in the garden. ( Thanks for your kind comments )

We have plenty of space around us and when I was 12 years younger ( and had just finished working off the property ) I decided to expand the garden; which was fine for a while; a real challenge. We did the Garden Art Fest where your garden is open to the public for a week in 2000 and 2002. We had lots of lovely folk through but oh the work involved......been there done that - I want to move on....then quilting happened and now I want to spendall some of my time elsewhere SEWING; creating of a different kind.

Of course the garden doesn't go away; it still needs care...and that's ME. ( yes just me ) It doesn't go away ( I don't want it to but ) but now I haven't as much time or energy so some parts get much less care.

I know, I will just show you the tidy parts. Up the driveway where you last looked is okay and around the house is neat and bright; its' my steps and tracks down to the dam ( pond ) that are a bit unkempt. ( we are talking seriously big area here )

Today's photos are of my favourite daffodil and a blaze of purple colour. Then if you'd like to come inside I'll show you what I see out my windows . 2 are out the kitchen window as I stand at the sink( see the herb garden just out there ), oops and that's all my work gloves on the clothes line. The other pic is from the lounge, looking out through the grape vine which is just sprouting; out to the front lawn.
Well perhaps more another day, don't want you getting bored.

I'm not sure if I told you but I love jokes. A friend just sent me a wee story this morning, I'll share it as its brief........

A Fairy Tale.
One day a long, long time ago, there was a woman who surprisingly didn't whine, nag or bitch. But this was a long, long time ago.....and it was just ONE day. THE END.

That is a serious garden you have and a lot of work. I have a small plot that keeps me busy, so I can imagine what you are up against.

I just can't imagine having so much green. Around here it's that green for maybe 3 weeks. The rest of the time it's brown.

Your garden is just beautiful.
That daffodil is spectacular!

no problems waiting....wow just stunning. Did you inherit your gardending skills or did you just learn them. I find it difficult to know what to do when oh and how much where prunning is concerned.

Ali - your garden is wonderful - I can't begin to imagine the amount of work it must take to keep on top of it - but it's a real credit to you. The last close up shot of the daffodil was beautiful

I sat on the bench patiently waiting for you to show me more and the waiting was worth it, you have a BEAUTIFUL garden.
