My Day in The Garden.

I was up and ready by 8am to start my day in the garden - still the remnants of the fog hanging around but beautiful sunshine peaking through.

Beautiful finds in the pot house clean up!!

All in bud, ready to explode into full blown colour

And I am going to Melbourne for 4 days tomorrow - and they will all explode into beautiful blooms while I am away - and no one here to take any photos....

A walk around the garden before I started revealed mandarins not far from being ready to eat
and a couple of rose bushes in bloom - I don't know why but I always seem to have at least one rose bush blooming which is nice.....

uncovered a heap of succulents and cacti in the pot house clean up also - my grand daughter will be happy to know that all of her potting for her market stall has paid off!!

planted and potted, weeded some m ore in the vegie garden, and picked the pumpkins.
Soooo many pumpkins from the few vines that survived. We didn't think there were many pumpkins at all. That was until we started following the vines, and finding pumpkins under the weeds on the dam bank. Roast pumpkin with dinner last night, pumpkin soup tonight and plenty of pumpkins to last us through until next year!! Very happy with that.
And what better way to finish off an outside clean up day than to have a bonfire to get rid of some rubbish - not my gardening rubbish but one of the piles from the shed clean up done a few weeks ago.

A great weekend all round for me!!
What have you been up to this weekend??


  1. Love the pumpkin pile! I need to grow some too, when do you plant? There wasn't a single pumpkin to be had at the IGA on Friday. Can you believe it?

    1. 'Down In The Riverina' where we are we plant our seeds in October for picking after the first frost the following year. Very odd for there to be no pumpkin in IGA!

  2. Thankyou for sharing your lovely photos ... it's like taking a stroll outside :o)

  3. Wow, all those pumpkins look impressive and even more exciting when unexpected. You did have a good day in the garden.

  4. Pumpkin soup anyone? thanks for sharing your
    colourful garden. Pity you won't be home to
    see those pot plants bloom.
    Cheers, Anita.

  5. What a huge pile of nice pumpkins..
    Thanks for sharing your pretty garden..
    My Crab Cacti have all bust into flower too. they do look pretty. Yours will still be flowering when you return home for you to enjoy.


I would love to hear your comments!!
