We spent most of Sunday in the garden.
We had the most divine weather for it & I was able to
get quite a few things done.
(This is the view form our back patio - pretty special yes?)
Of course if you were to look a little closer you'd find an army of weeds.
Luckily we are not waging a war against them - it's more of a peace treaty with land rights.
Truth is you couldn't win that war in our rambling garden so it's always best to
put up a fair fight and then concede defeat when the referee rings the bell.
(The beer o'clock bell that is)
Our pooch Eddie had other ideas as well...
My faithful companion.
Our vegie patch is looking promising too....
I cannot wait to sample our snow pea sprouts
(Did you know the leaves make a great addition to a salad?)
as well as our baby beets... I plan on roasting them and having a
Beetroot and Gouda Panini... crazy I know but so darn tasty.
Apart from the weeding I managed a few other menial tasks like
cleaning all the chicken feeders and...
planting these Peace Lily bulbs
(given to me by my surrogate grandparents - Thank you Jilly & Buppa)
Altogether it was a most productive day....
... & I even squeezed in a spot of sewing.
Highlights though would have to be the heady scent of Jasmine
(which literally fills the air since it covers our entire back fence)
and finding this...
Brought such a smile to my face to think of
some young lad (or lass) playing with this in our
garden and having as blissful a day as mine.
Your weekend peoples? Busy, quiet, productive, sleepy, lazy, adventurous?
