I look out my window and go ahhhhhhhhh. This the longest we have lived in one spot so it's the first time for me to see one of my gardens 'bulk up and give a display!!!! Very satisfying. Particularly as 4 years ago it was grass!

Never believe anyone who says your proposed garden is too big!!!

Remember, treat others how you would like to be treated.

It's just gorgeous, daffy. (Y)

Hasn't our recent rain made the surrounding country look beautiful too? :D

I love the second photo most too Daffy. My heart went "sigh" with satisfaction as I looked at the garden, the grass, the sheds, the whole scene.
Very Australian and nostalgic. :)
Happy days!

Your garden looks lovely. It looks so peaceful. Isn't it nice when everything is green.

Gorgeous Photos, Daffy. I hope you don't mind but I've got the second one as my desktop wallpaper now, it's such a pleasure to look at. I might one day do a painting from it if I ever get back into that :)
