Sunday is always a bit of a lie in sort of day, followed with a bacon, egg and hash brown type of breakfast. Todays bacon came from the market yesterday at Gordonton, and very nice indeed, and the eggs were provided by our girls.
They spent the day out in the back garden as a thank you!
Tex and I went back to bed. He slept and I read my book. But there is only so much staying in bed I can do, so I was up and out, dressed and ready to face the rest of the day.............just before lunch time!
I went and visited my lovely young friend Nadia, she is the mother of this gorgeous boy called Roo. She had a big out door pot for me to collect, which I did but after I had a wander around her garden. Full of lovely old fashioned flowering shrubs planted by her granny. Lily of the Valley, Rhododendrons, Azaleas, and other very familiar things to me that I love.
This is the pot, and I planted the Camellia that I bought yesterday while out in it plus some other pots of colour that I got when TOF and I went out this afternoon. We went to Oderings Garden centre to pick up some $1 plants. Then we stopped off at Chartwell Shopping Centre to get TOF some of his favourites.
Now back to that pot and my planting.
Once the Camellia was planted I gave it a bit of a
haircut prune, because I think I might make it into a Standard style plant. Round the base I added my instant colour and other bits from about my garden to the pot is chocka block!!
A bit of watering via the sky and a close up of some of the plants.
The bits I pruned off I put in my purple
spotted jug with some Rosemary.
Waste not want not!
TOF found a fragrant Beronia which he potted up and I put my left over colourful plants in another pot out on the deck. I love pots full of colour, and pots make for a moveable garden!!
The girls enjoyed the afternoon scratching about
in the back yard while we potted about.
Sheba kept an eye on things at all times
after all she is a working dog!
TOF as the Chicken Whisperer!

The day was nearing an end so the girls wandered on down the path to their designated spot in the back yard, Oscar reflected on the day, the last of the Idesia berries stood out in the sky, and Sheba was waiting for TOF. Tex of course was inside waiting by the fridge as he required feeding.
If you hang out in your undies in the garden
remember to take a photo
and blog it!!
