A very Autumnal laid back Sunday around here....

Sunday around here is usually a pretty kick backed kind of day, and this one was no exception.  Not that I struggle to do very little on any given day.  I figure as long as the washing is up to date on Sunday it is total cruise control for me.  The temperature was slightly cooler but still not winter woolies time yet. It was a lovely lazy day to wander around the garden and take in all the changes going on at this time of the year.


Amazingly colour is still happenin
 out the back of our place.


Berries, buds, seed pods,
and twirling stems reaching out
for a new direction to grow.

My big feet shaped paving stones
are covered in crispy
aged leaves.


The last of the vegetables on offer.

I want TOF to plant his vegetable garden
in lupines and mustard
for winter.

 But the girls will want to have a 
scratch and a dig
before hand.

Coral was looking all beautiful
and glossy
on this overcast 
Autumn day.



A praying mantis arrived in the kitchen.

Oscar was fascinated,
Tex ended up playing with it
then eating it!!
(are they the insects that get eaten after sex? well bad luck, no sex was involved)
Out the front the garden is
quite bushy
and in need of some
grooming!

Ivy creeping about
and
a lone pine cone.

A Blue Lady bird, a Sparrow, and a Clicky bug.
Obviously I am no Richard Attenborough
so Clicky Bug it is.

Even finished Dandelions can look lovely,
as to does the
Cactus,
and the
Flax seed pods!

 Everything is welcome in our garden.
(even visitors, nice to see you today Annette)
Meanwhile inside on the couch.....
slightly hungover and exhausted teenager and small white dog
both had a bit of shut eye.

Excuse Me!

I was up at 2.15am also
collecting said teen from town,
did I have a nana nap??

Another true story.
Sometimes
the day just passes me by.

Utterly Fabulous though!!

Hope you all had an enjoyable
and
very relaxing
weekend.

That teenager has it very, very good … having a Mum willing to come and pick him up in the middle of the night. I'm not looking forward to those times … but they'll be here before I know it :0(
The garden looks great and I love your footprint pavers.

Your bird of paradise is beautiful (you are teaching me very well!)you really do have an amazing garden, the feet paving stones under crispy leaves is a great shot- Teen's are probably the best sleepers in the world and yours have a flaming marvelous Mum, I'm glad you had a great day! (how did you manage without the Nana nap! I'd have passed out in a corner somewhere haha!) x x x
