Down the Garden Path.

Last evening quite late I went for a walk down our garden path to the water as the tide was in.
Come and have a look.

The Albizia tree is in flower. ( there is a rustic seat under it and the jetty to the left. ) It looks like this close up.

Very peaceful down there when it's not windy. A lovely calm evening.

 Some colourful flowers are out in the garden.

Its our 52nd Anniversary today. ( how did we have time to get married at this time of the year.....ahhhh things were at a slower pace back then  - NZ closed for the weekend.)

A Finish and Gardening

The felt ball with teapot motifs is finished and being wrapped in my sister's Christmas present along with the usual book and other bits. ( That was ball # 29. I wonder if I'll ever make ball # 30 ? )

Grandson's little garden is doing well. His beans are flowering the radishes already eaten ( by the adults ) and the peas are climbing the frame R put in for him.
 For a 4 year old he has considerable garden knowledge and loves helping and picking and preparing things we and he grow. He eats almost every vegetable which is great  and every fruit I can think of.

Here he is eating the biggest strawberry we picked on Wednesday.
The first scarlet runners have set on my beans.
It's always good to see the feijoa trees flowering well...come April we will be enjoying the fruit.

 My flowers are all doing well. The dahlias are out I will show you the pics next time
