A day without rain and clouds.

How wonderfully blue is the sky. I had almost forgotten how blue it is.


I couldn't decide which of these pictures I liked best so I have put them both on. The Cassia flowers are such a bright yellow and Bow looked so cute sleeping on the lounge.

Craig's projects

This is the first plinth for the posts around our carport, what a mess this place is.
Another project is the rock border which will surround the circular driveway when we eventually get it.

Guava Jam

It's that time again. Guava's everywhere along my walk. I don't leave home without my plastic bag. I can't believe that no one else is picking them. I've got enough to make jam, more jam and juice too.

The tamarillo's are ripe early this year.
They are usually only ready in May or June.
Must be the good rains that we had.
It's a shame that I don't really like them.
I guess I could make chutney, but I still
have 4 jars of mango chutney and don't
need any more. Luckily friends and family love them.

It's had to imagine that these were seeds just 10 days ago. Especially the beans at the back.

Coffee with cousins

What great fun to have coffee, tea and cake with family. Cousin Jackie, my mum (Anne) and cousin Debbie.

My vegie patch and Shelley's vegie patch

My patch is very much overgrown with sweet potato right now, but I have cleared some area's ready for the autumn/winter veg.
My friend Shelley had just revamped her patch by adding walkways and making it into 4 beds. It looks great and I am sure it will be even more productive than it was before.

Herbs and entrance.

Autumn is here.
The garlic chives are flowering
and the basil is growing well.

We've been working hard in the garden all weekend and needed some inspiration, so I looked up an old photo of our entrance and took a new one. Seeing this makes all the hard work seem most worthwhile.

Where there was one, now there are many.
