Damn!! I was going to say: 'Mmmmm, warm feet stuff'. Then realised I spelt it wrong :oops: :oops: Anyway, really nice boots, lined with sheepskin(?), nice and waterproof, with a great sole for snowish stuff. It's spelt Sorel :oops: :oops: :oops: (Actually, I got a pair when we were working in the snow fields but they're too warm for even here, believe it or not!)

I love that I don't have to wear 6 layers of clothes during Winter any more, and I don't get chillblains, and ........

Geee, why did I think that'd be the answer... :lol: :lol: :roll: But, if you get the right clothes, you only have to wear four layers of clothes, hiking boots keep away the chilblains and bulk lip balm is really quite cheap if you go to the right shops...

Oh dear - good thing your shade house has elastic sides! :lol:

You poor thing, Pam, but Hooray! for the pots. Will that affect your micro-climate now?


Well I do have some nice photos dating back to summer. Would they be ok?

I'm thinking maybe it's because this isn't a fair trade for freezing for months on end! :lol:

Mmm, mmm. Pam, that's really special! Those beehive things look sensational :D :D Now, why haven't you put that in the theme comp????? You know, The Non-Melbourne Garden - region-specific, like Ian said...

Actually, I think that I should whinge about Melbourne weather more - we woke up to sunshine this morning... AND, it stayed sunny all day. Yay!! (Shame I was in an office :roll: )

And Pokie, as long as you can put a 'theme' to it, it should be fine. :D

Luzy,

Whinging is one thing...doesn't it guarantee lousy weather if you actually say it was nice one day?

Luzy, I'm sort of hanging out for my own garden to do the right thing. Surely the azaleas will come out sometime in the next 3 or so weeks?! They look so daggy at the moment. :lol:


This one was a pic my Aunt took at the open garden we went to in Brisbane ..... I may well enter it on her behalf, though I'll have to check the size of the original first, to make sure it's big enough. We've always been told we should remove the flowers from our coleus, but having seen them in that garden, in full bloom, I haven't been so quick in nipping them off. (Those spikes in front of the bee hive are coleus)

Can't blame you for not nipping the spikes - it makes them so wonderfully different, and tropical, and, well, warm looking!

Yes, Pokie - there isn't any stipulation that it has to be a current photo!
