SPRING!

A COUPLE OF WARM DAYS AND THE GARDEN TAKES ON A NEW LOOK.......

A YEAR IN MY GARDEN lavender

On my road to recovery, it's been such a treat to just sit in the warm sunshine and feel the sun on my face and to slowly observe the goings on around me......

The gentle sound of bees in the fragrant Lavender.

pond a year in my garden

The goldfish have finally popped out from under the water lilies and appear to be sunning themselves too.

chook briard a year in my garden

One of the chooks enjoying a dirt bath....Pierre is totally fascinated by the flapping and ruffling of feathers.

Pierre has taken on a new task, and it's called rounding up the chickens. It's hilarious! He will go around and around keeping them in a tight circle, (he is a French sheepdog after all).  I don't think that it matters to him that they are chickens.

He then gets this panicked look on his face when they start to break rank and go off in all sorts of directions.

Hey your'e not supposed to do that!

tulip a year in my garden

Parrot Tulips flowering beautifully......bittersweet.... as they were given to me by my gorgeous friend that passed away this year.

A splash of purple in a pot.....

a year in my garden horse rider

It's school holidays and there's lots of horse riding activity....

chickens

I'm never alone when enjoying a coffee....chooks make themselves right at home on the table.....that's because they know I always have little treats for them.

Camellia a year in my garden

Camellias are still flowering strongly......how perfect is this one!

doves pigeons

Fantails go for a stroll....

sugar snap peas

Nothing like having a munch on some sugar peas......always taste better when they are picked and eaten in the veggie garden, still warm from the sunshine.

crab apple

Crabapples.....sigh....

a year in my garden

How beautiful do they look against that blue.

tulips

White tulips about to pop open.....I think I like them like this too....all fresh and green.

snow pears a year in my garden

Snow Pears......I still remember their vivid autumn colours and the raking of leaves.

poppies

I had some colourful poppies and luscious sweets dropped into my kitchen last week by some beautiful gals..... and the thing that I love about poppies is that each day you walk past them they "pop" open to reveal their inner delights...

poppies a year in my garden

They look like colourful parasols......

A YEAR IN MY GARDEN

Look at natures work of art!

All these things made be very happy and I hope they put a smile on your face too!
