How does your garden grow?

I mentioned yesterday that I have been spending some time in the garden. We like on an acre of land so there are lots of gardens.

But my favorite part of the garden is in the front which is our cottage garden.

The mini roses are flowering. I saved these five plants from a nursery 3 years ago. The pots where dry and the plants looked dead. They where priced at 50c. I thought I could give them love and care. And 3 years later they healthy and strong and in full bloom.


I went to Bunnings and bought a whole lot more plants to put in. I can't wait to see all the white petunias in bloom.

While I was at the counter I saw this beautiful Owl. He just had to come home with me.

And I even spotted these little tea light holders. One each colour please.

I always find all these little items that I just throw into my trolley at the last minute and it always throws out my budget.

Well with all the rain we have been having the last few days my new little plants are just going to thrive.


  1. YAY for gardens! Yours is looking really sweet! I'm getting into it more this year especially with the Vegetable garden! SO rewarding cooking and eating what you grow. Love that owl!
