My Sister's Garden






Do you ever wonder where I get my inspiration and motivation?
It's not hard to come back from a trip home to the farm, and get straight back out into my garden
This is the view from her garden seat . . . not bad hey!
. . . and Harry the scarecrow, sporting a new jumper for Spring and matching flowers in his hat.

Is that rose called "Rambling Rector ...a friend has one which was purchased from Bendigo.
I want it but doubt I have anything big enough to grow it over.
I grew up on the land and vowed I would never marry a farmer....but would love that space now. Mind you we had to fight for every bit of garden ground we obtained.....LOL.

That rose is fantastic, and I'd love to see what all her potted plants are. It is no wonder you want to get out and work in your own gardens after visiting your sisters farm. I would too. Visiting blogs inspire me to get out and work in mine.

Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

Gorgeous photos, Annie! We are on a property and in a new house with a blank canvas. Very hard to get motivated in an empty yard! My DH has been working hard carting poo and soil and making garden beds. Now we just have to start saving for plants! We've got the veggie garden all organised... and a big bed outside the yard... with pumpkins and mellons... and the stupid steers came and trampled them. :( Love your view! :)

Green fingers must run in the family. Love the 3 ducks.

A truly delightful peep into your Sister's garden. The scarecrow is hunk!

Oh, wow! What a beautiful garden! And she has ducks. How perfect. Yep, I can see lots of inspiration there. Those green fingers must run in your family.

I love the geese and the scarecrow! The rose bush is amazing, I was wondering which kind of flower it was, never seen such a spectacular rose plant.

always the first rose of spring
