In My Garden

Our house is a home, we live in it, so therefore it sometimes also looks like a cyclone (aka children) has torn through it.

Some days the view from the outside is not much better, we seem to have come to a halt with renovations, and need to finish off some painting, tidy up the tools lying everywhere, and deal with the never-ending weeds, as well as the destruction  that two very energetic dogs make.

This all gets me a bit down at times, but then I chose to focus on all the great things that can be found in our garden, and decided to share them with you  (cause nobody wants to see pictures of the not so great things there!)

There is all kinds of life cycle’s and events happening in our yard, I just need to remember to open my eyes and look up and around.

The garden is the perfect place to enjoy a cuppa and slice of cake!

Our shed was once used by a sunbird to build one glorious nest

The current sunbird hanging around our place, I caught him in the car port today checking himself out in the side mirror on the car and having a chat to himself! Thanks for giving me a much-needed smile birdy!

Technically the Singapore Daisy is a weed, but I still think it is rather pretty!

    • Thanks Deb! We named Storm, and she has lived up to her name, but Zen came from a shelter already named, and we thought it was a good fit, so kept it. Was Evie already named when you got her?

      • i love how they complement each other – like storm can learn a little zen and vice versa to be in the middle ground.

        evie was already named by the shelter and we had actually planned to rename any dog we got, but then we got her and all agreed she was instantly EVIE and could not imagine changing her name
