This photo is from last spring...my favourite time of year flower wise.The sail over head gives the plants some protection from the elements.

Thanks Thee...I wish it looked like that 365 days of the year....never mind, SPRING (F) is on it's way. Once we pass the shortest day of the year ..it's all downhill. :wink:

That is lovely, Midgin.
Love that pot in the foreground. The whole scene looks so inviting.

I brought a couple of really big pots from Qld with me and the frosts shattered them here. :shock:
