We arrived back this afternoon from attending Greg's nieces wedding - and guess what - I spent all afternoon outside in my own yard!!! Oh how good did that feel. I do miss not being able to wander around and do a bit of this and a bit of that each day.
And I have planted the first of my winter vegies!! Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage & Bok Choy. Here they have just been planted, after the composted manure has been sprinkled along the rows, watering as I go and then Greg is mulching with chaff from around the chaff cutter. Next planting is next weekend and then every weekend following. Still have celery, spinach, beans, peas and herbs to go in and the repeat sewing's also.

The wedding we attended yesterday was held in my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's garden. They live on a dry area property near Temora, NSW. The walkway above is where the bride and her dad entered from. The ceremony was conducted at the beginning of the lawn. A huge marquee was set up just outside the garden for the reception.

The garden is very large and park like. Lots of roses in stand alone beds as well as bordering all the shrub beds.

This would be my favourite spot in the whole garden - a fabulous little 'room' - one of many rooms throughout the garden.

3 more snaps of other parts of the garden. Such a relaxing and pleasurable place to be in. In spring time it is a breathtaking picture with all of the rose, bulbs and ground covers in bloom.
I of course have come home all enthused to get back into our garden and get it up to scratch (although it won't be as expansive as this one) - more shrubs to plant and create backdrops and lots more roses, geraniums, lavenders and ground covers to create colour and interest. There won't be as many 'rooms' either and know where near as much lawn.
Where are the wedding photo's you ask - well - muggins here had flat batteries in her camera, and left the mobile back at the motel room (well I went over to attend a wedding didn't I, not be answering the phone!!). These photos I took today on my mobile - we went back for the day after brunch!!
That is it from me this evening - I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and I hope we all have a fabulous week ahead!!
