More home and garden pics

Well, after posting a whole stack of vegie garden pics, I thought I'd show you some other garden photos while it was all looking so pretty. For those of you who don't know, our garden is definitely not huge. Our home is on a 700m2 block so there is not heaps of space. In fact, it is the one drawback of living where we do. We would SO love to have a bigger garden. But we are very grateful for the home we have, and we love how our garden has grown and become established since we built our home 8 1/2 years ago. In that time it has gone from a dirty, muddy clay-ridden building site, to a home.  These pics are taken to document our garden as it is right now. I love to take photos each year and compare how the trees have grown, and to see which new plants have been added, and which have been removed. A garden is always in a state of transition. That is one of the most magical things about having a garden. It is a project that is never finished. There is always something new to inspire you. Here are some photos taken on January 5th 2011.




















Thanks for visiting my little patch today. I am enjoying some "me" time this week, as my boys are having a holiday with Granmama and Papa, and then going to stay with Aunty J and Uncle C for a few days. They are having an absolute ball playing with their cousins. I will miss them, but I also thoroughly enjoy the chance to take a break and spend some time alone with My Mr. This is a special week for us, but I'll share more of that another day. Hope your week is wonderful. xxx

  1. Your garden is looking stunning - and so are your veges. I hear on the news last night that there is flooding in Victoria now. Hope you are missing out on that.

  2. Looks immaculate Anita - is it always that tidy? Not a weed or stray leaf in sight. Have a beautiful week with your lovely hubby.

  3. Nikki, it isn't always quite so neat. Just thought I'd capture it at it's best -right after a big spruce up.

    Lottie, no floods anywhere near here this time thankfully, but so much heartache in so many Aussie towns at the moment. Thanks for stopping by. xx
