Gardening Walk at August end


I went on a road trip today to a very special garden with my mother

A wonderful setting and magnificent soil

Beauty was abundant in every direction

Look at those worms in the compost!
Just made me want to come home and . . .

A visit to the "cousins" farm

Trees have been growing down this driveway since 1870

Bulbs down by the old creek - naturalised and beautiful.
Sheep graze amongst them, and they have been growing there for more than 100 years!

Old Wagons parked under the trees

Putting out seed for the birds

Beautiful country side and wonderful sights

. . . especially in the Springtime

Hooky 1, Hooky 2, Hooky 3

Been doing some crotchet and . . .

loving it!

Already started another one - different pattern. 
I'm a little "crotchet crazy" at the moment.

This is 1 of our Pussy Cats - MAX!

I was trying to change the sheets on Miss Flowergarden's bed -

but he just didn't want to get up! 

I couldn't help getting my camera out, and I think he was wondering what on earth I was doing.  He finally succumbed, and stretched and got up . . . as if it was his own idea!
