We are just back from a couple of days away in Bridgetown – just over 100km to the east of where we live. I took some photos of flowers from the garden where we stayed and one of the view from the back verandah. It was very quiet and peaceful. Just what I was seeking!
Thanks for the positive feedback on my previous two orchid posts. I will make this my last one for now even though I have many more. So here goes:
I was lucky to be given two bunches of flowers recently. The soft pink roses and the Australian natives. I always like to photograph them so I can enjoy them long after their use-by date. The pansies are from my garden.

Well, where would I rather be? Out in the forest looking for wildflowers!
I like to have a nice garden but it is not something that comes naturally to me. Up until recently all I had in my small, rear yard was the big, above ground garden bed, some palms and two jasmine plants.
The garden bed was really too big for the space and because it was so deep I had stopped planting vegetables and my mint, parsley and oregano started to take over. I was able to quickly sell the garden bed on Facebook but then what was I going to do with all that soil?
It is still a work in progress but I felt happy today that I had made some improvements. I now have some cherry tomato plants, some irises, marigolds, snapdragons and repotted herbs. A friend kindly gave me some lovely succulents earlier this week and I decided to use my multi-level trays just for succulents.
