Music Boy

 Master Flowergarden had a birthday and turned 15
He is a Music Buff so I "tried" to make a Guitar Cake.
 And a week or so ago, Mum and I went with some friends to the Garden Show in Melbourne.  It was wonderful for a flower lover like me!




 I must plant those tulip bulbs I bought - they are still in the crisper!

For the LOVE of Gardening

 I just LOVE being a Gardener . . .
 There is ALWAYS something to look forward to, and every season sneaks into my heart and becomes my favourite.
 Autumn has arrived in Ballarat, and it's my all time favourite (for the moment).
 The vibrant colours are everywhere and I might just be a little bit obsessed with my "garden curtains" outside my back door.  With the morning sun shining through them, they are a BRILLIANT colour and a joy to behold.
 I used to have to collect the Autumn leaves from town when I first moved here, but now I have Autumn leaves of my very own - oh bliss!

 And amongst it all, there are still plenty of flowers.  The roses are rising to their Autumn Flush and the Salvias are full of flowers.
 Lots of exciting things every day in my garden.  So happy to be on School Holidays so I can enjoy it everyday.

Beautiful Begonias

 On Saturday I went for a lovely walk through our local Botanical Gardens with my mum.
 We recently had a Begonia Festival and the display was just magnificent.
 Everywhere we looked in the hot house was just amazing.
 We kept saying to each other "look at this one! . . . look at this one!"



 The Prime Minister Walk in the Gardens is also interesting.

 This is our newest Bust that was unveiled this year.

 An amazing likeness of Julia

It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon

It's a Jungle out there

 Angus is 6 months old.
 We got him from the RSPCA last Saturday
 He is a wonderfully friendly, placid little puss
 He has been inside for a few days but has just begun exploring the garden
He thinks he is "the king of the world"...but we know the other 2 cats are...or one in particular! 
 There were so many places to hide and explore
 He had a lovely time out there



 . . . and then it was time to rest on a quilt inside
and have a cat nap
