TOF headed off to Whangamata early this morning to go fishing, or Hunting for the family as he likes to call it. (he has returned with dinner for a few nights) Finding myself home alone and quite content to be so I decided to head out doors and do a spot of gardening. With only jandals on my feet and short sleeves I moved buxus and planted Camellias, and got totally side tracked with my camera. Quite a mild day for Winter and a fabulous way to while away the day!!
|Garden Art with a lone Bird of Paradise.|
|Some of Garden friends that hang out with me.|
|A string of shells from Whangamata, and a group of Hyacinth getting ready to perform.|
|The girls having a fine old time in TOFs vege plot.|
|Pots, bird baths, chairs, chiminea, trees and my scarecrow.|
|My dad made this tiny bird house years ago, he called it the ladybird house.|
|Hyper-tuffa, pumice and foliage.|
|Pig full of Hyacinths.|
|Promise of colour and fruit to come.|
|Flaxes, jandal solar lights in the shells, scarecrows with toadstools.|
|Shapes and sculpture blending with nature.|
My garden and how it changes with the seasons and time provides me with hours of pleasure. I enjoy the peace and tranquility that I find when armed with my gardening gloves and a trowel, and of course my trusty camera.
