Not such a good weekend this weekend - windy, cold and rainy. It is the football grand final weekend - both AFL and NRL so it is pretty quiet out there.  I can't get into the garden so I am bottling up my dried herbs.  The irises are looking great and I have decided that next year I will plant them all along the side fence - should look nice against the green fence.  More next week.

More beautiful Spring flowers

Another lovely weekend! The garden is growing well and the jasmine, daphne and assorted bulbs are adding cheerful colour and wonderful scent.  I have put up the garden clock (better photos soon) and done a little (and I mean a little) weeding.  I have added some extra flowers to the flower photo page and have started a new page "Calendar" which is a what to plant, what to harvest and what to do every month of the year.  Under constructions - hopefully it will be a useful page.

Spring is bringing a continual supply of beautiful and fragrant flowers this year.  I have a bad feeling that the Jasmine and Daphne (left) will totally over power the house by the end of the day. This weekend and I am putting in some new herbs - Tarragon, another lemon Thyme and a variety of Majoram I haven't tried yet.  I am using them as border plants for the veg garden area.  I am also potting my tomato seedlings and starting the hardening off process so that they are ready to go in when the broccoli is finished. And yes I still have loads of weeding and paving work to do.  No luck with the video yet, but I will keep trying.  More next week.

Windy weekend

Wow! What a windy and wet weekend.  I am pleased to say that it doesn't look there has been any damage to the garden (or roof for that matter).  I have done a little work on the blog - you will notice some changes on the "craft" page and that the other pages have been tidied up a bit.  Still no luck on getting the video set up, but I am sure that I will work it out soon.  Have a great week1  Back to work for me I'm afraid.  More next weekend.

September Site Update 2012

 I am in the process of updating all of the Blog pages, so hopefully it will be in much better shape by the end of the week.  I have a week of holiday and I am hoping to spend at least 2 days on the garden - tidying the garden beds, pulling the weeds, and working on the paving.  Too much to do in the time I have set, but I am hoping to make a start.  More soon.  Sarah
