Thankfully, we have had much rain and warm days. The hot air is trapped here on the mountain – no better place to have breakfast than in my misty glasshouse.
Experimenting in my new glasshouse hothouse. Lettuce, begonias and a cat, so far. Very exciting. What else should I grow in here? All suggestions welcome.
Ok, so I’ve made that up… however, I have started a new project which requires heavy weeding and the rearranging of a rock border.
There are old pavers to be removed and rocks replaced. It’s always rewarding to see the weeds gone and a new project evolving.
The light is dappled and I can work at my own pace under the shade of the lilac tree.
Further around the garden I can see figs ripening with the hostas looking on.
After a day’s lifting, weeding and rolling rocks into place, I’m quite pleased with the result. Cats also inspected the new garden bed!
What are your favourite plants for afternoon dappled light??

One of the simple pleasures is breakfast at our local coffee shop with good book in tow. This morning these beautiful spring flowers welcomed me at the table.
I am reading Kate Llewellyn’s A Fig at the Gate (Crows Nest, NSW: Allen and Unwin, 2014). Her reflections on gardening and life are wise and considered.
Now I ready for a day in the garden. How have you started your Saturday?

crabandfish_garden for short reflections too. Happy weekend.
Actually it’s a peony farm with an old weatherboard chapel on site – divine. I absolutely love this time of year and these herbaceous peonies are stunning!
However, tree peonies are quite different – still beautiful though.

Sixteen years ago today we moved into our mountain home and greeted by this gorgeous lilac. Still flowering today. Love this time of year!
I love this time of year, when I can gather up these gorgeous white lilac panicles and display them in this vintage vase. For my mum whose funeral was this time last year – All Saints Day. To all our loved ones who remind us of the things we love.
Tulips sprinkled by spring rains – in our garden today 🌷🌷🌷
A walk around the garden always reveals some special treasures!Take time to “be botanical”. 😊
WordPress just informed me I have been blogging about my garden for seven years – that’s amazing! Thank you to all my followers and to those who comment and share their thoughts and ideas – it’s great to a part of your botanical community!
