In my garden...........

Just doing some stitching but nothing much on the sewing front since the dresss.......

Our pet gular..........my new standard rose "Imp"

Look....look close and you can see our tomatoes have started to get fruit....yummy.......can't wait till they are ripe and we can start picking..........

Oyster plant..........
the strawberries are starting to get fruit also.......... things are growing very well can't wait to see them after some rain.........how long do we have to wait for some rain??????????The vegie patch - we have about 15 different things growing in the garden this year..........some things I never grow but the kids are so excited about growing and watching and checking things I have added a few things just for there pleasure..........hopefully it will survive our very hot weather..........we have nice days at the moment but the weather is so changy........one day hot and the next cool..........one night you are in winter pjs with the doors closed and then another you have summer pj's on..............weird............now we have the shade area this will hopefully make it better for the vegies when it is 40+.......................
we found this bird nest in the white cedar tree.........not sure who is nesting in it.......
the kids having fun...............look how dry it is outside our garden............we are desperate for rain and no sign of it to come for awhile yet..........I am just ignoring the paddocks.............it is to depressing..........we will be selling some stock in the next fortnight................take care...............

  10. Despite your dry paddocks, you have plenty of beauty in your home paddock. Love seeing the vegi garden and that rose is just beautiful. I have spent all day in my garden today, and tomorrow looks like a hot one, but maybe we will get some rain next week. Beautiful photos!
