The late great Louis Armstrong crooned 'what a wonderful world' ... and I pretty much have the same sentiments. My world is pretty wonderful at the moment and so is my garden. The summer rains have been most welcome & the garden is bursting with colour & song as the birds compete with each other. I love birds & their chirping & chattering ... except when they get going from 4am though!!! We have such an abundant bird life & even have a peacock & guinea fowl that have made themselves at home. My favourite time of the day to enjoy the garden is either early morning on a weekend ... when everyone is still asleep as I sip my coffee on the patio watching all the birds or at sunset ... having a sundowner with my sidekick watching the birds & if we are lucky enough a buck or two that wander down to the dam. Yep ... I am one lucky gal & I am thankful for my many blessings. Here are a few pics of the garden I thought you may enjoy ...
|A glimpse of the patio. I planted up this basket about a month ago & am so chuffed at how nicely it has turned out! (one can blow one's own horn occasionally)|
|We have 3 lay hens ... this is Miss Erin holding Maddy|
|These are my salad & herb planters that my very clever sidekick made for me. They are outside the kitchen door for easy access so I don't have to traips to the veggie garden every time when |
Now ... some news! We have an addition to the family. Let me introduce Lily
She is only 6 weeks & is the cutest little thing. She still has that puppy smell & of course Miss E is totally in love with her. The only downside is the waking up at night to let a crying Lily out to do her business in the garden. We have to keep a close eye on her as the owls would see her as a tasty snack! So from a sleep deprived state I bid you farewell & wish you all a good start to the week!
