A wander around the garden

I took the camera for a wander around the garden this afternoon.
Lately I've been so busy working in the garden I haven't taken the time to just relax and appreciate it. I took so many photos I've collaged some of them... otherwise you would have been scrolling and scrolling.





It's looking so good at the moment it makes me very sad to be leaving.

For some comic relief, I just have to look at the chickens. They've lost most of the feathers poor things...but very funny.



Meanwhile, the greenhouse is packed to overflowing with plants I want to take with us to the new garden.


lots of broms (you may have noticed)

 Some succulents, orchids, cordylines, frangipanis and spider lilies as well.


It's going to be a small garden and I think I have far too many.

Time flies

Time has been flying by lately. It's been two months since I posted anything. I have been busy with work and with getting Missy's garden and her house ready to sell.
The photographer is coming tomorrow to take photos for the internet advertisement so it is finally happening. Missy's Garden is for sale.

 
The lawn is lovely and green and there is so much in bloom around the garden at the moment.

 
With all the rain we've had recently there seems to be more flowers on the ground than on the trees.
 
The Brazilian Red Cloak and the Calliandra are both in flower at the moment.
 
Tibouchina (with chookies in the background)
 

I love their purple flowers.
 
 
 Just look at the Golden Penda Xanthostemon-Chrysanthus.
 
 
We have a few of these in the garden, in our rainforest area. The lorikeets are in parrot heaven. We wake to their squabbling each morning at the moment and when anyone ventures into that part of the garden they tell you off. I have reassured them I'm not going to steal their flowery feast.
 
 
The back patio area is the tidiest I've seen it in a long time. The table often doubles as a potting bench.


I spent the Easter break tidying up bromeliads and cleaning out the garden shed - plus replanting the vegie patch.


Usually I would start a few trays from seed but this time I just visited the big green shed and bought seedlings ready to plant. My reasoning - Who knows how long it will take to sell the house, and I don't want to go without my home-grown vegies in the meantime. Besides I'm sure whoever buys the house will use them if we do sell it quickly.

The builder has finished our new house, but there is still some things to be done - like floor coverings and a driveway, so it will still be a month or two before we could move in.

Here's a sneak peek at our new kitchen,

and our bathroom.
 

I forgot to take any photos of the front of the house.... Oh well, next time.
