A Little Bit More

And just like that Christmas is only 6 days away!! And it is hot - predicted 40 degreea here today so a hot christmas coming up. I freely admit I don't like summer - autimn and spring preferably and winter over summer.
QUESTION: I am not receiving any of my comments in my email account which means I cannot reply to the lovelies that comment on my posts - anyone have any suggestions of how to fix this!!

I went shopping a couple of weeks ago - not fabric or yarn or anything crafty!!

Anyone would think I like Pelargoniums.... well I do..... so hardy and always green and a splash of colour.

These have been flowering too - I gave up on my garden early this year when it didn't get watered while I was working all day through last summer and 2 labradors dug out plant after plant after plant. I am back into it now but taking a while for things to get going. Pottering about outside is relaxing and my thinking or zoning out time. I have also recently started relocating my vegie garden - all pots or raiused beds now and right out the back door.

Some of the roses are continuing to bloom.

always something on the cutrus trees.

I have spent a lot of time potting up cuttings - many from friends I have been dropping in on.

Have also made each of the youngest grandies a cactus garden and a succulent garden so they have something to enter in the show next year - hopefully they all grow and look fabulous!!

Thank goodness I have a pot house situated next to a shady tree - all of the overflow pots are under the tree. It is a 'farm job' - rustic and sturdy!!! An old cattle crate from an old truck - youngest son put shelves in for me and I covered it in shade cloth. I am eyeing off another old cattle crate also - it would be put to good use in my care!!!lol

That will just about do for this post. I have done other things with my time - crafting, cooking and working - more on some of those next post.


  1. Hello lovely Kerrie! Seeing all your pretty Pelargoniums has made me smile. We can't really grow them down here as it is a bit too cold. They die in the Winter affected by Jack Frost. You have been busy in your garden. I don't envy you your 40°....just a little bit too hot for me. It is much cooler down here. I don't think Summer is swinging by our way this year....perhaps in the new year. I hope you have a most wonderful Christmas celebrating with your lovely family and friends♥
