I’ve been trying to propagate some succulents by just placing the leaves on damp soil. It’s starting to work!! Wow, I’m incredibly excited!! I’ll keep you posted about their progress 🙂

I’m terribly grateful for all our lemon trees, they seem to fruit around the year, I take a spoon of lemon juice and honey every night. I haven’t had a cold for ages.

Our garden has been winding down for winter but the succulents and indigenous plants have been putting on a beautiful show for us.

Hope your week is wonderful and you’re keeping warm (southern hemisphere 🙂

Succulents

Succulents

I seem to have developed a love of succulents, my daughter Erin adores them and now I do too. We’ve decided to turn our old dilapidated rose garden into a succulent bed. I’m very excited, tomorrow we begin! We bought these beauties on Saturday, I’m going to try to propagate a few from them as well.

Have a great week!

Knitting, Home and Walking

Bark

We went walking over the weekend and I spotted this beautiful tree bark, love the texture. Jen is back from Australia and Erin’s back from PLTU scout camp. It’s good to have everyone home again. We’ve started off our school journey again, only three schooling now, Jen is off to university next month, I’m SO excited for her!!

Flowers www.naturalsuburbia.com

Richard came home with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers for me, I really adore these beautiful surprises!

Hat

I’ve started a new hat design, I think it should be a knit-along. I’m knitting in Mama Jude’s naturally dyed worsted yarn, too beautiful!! I’m enjoying the pattern so far.

Lou and Charlie

At last, Lou and Charlie are friends, Lou is such a lovely addition to our fur-baby family, he’s so full of energy and loves being around people.

The Rain is Here!

Sunflower

Hello!

We’ve been so busy with exams etc… that I haven’t had much time to pop in here to post about what we been up to, so I thought I’d share a little of what’s been happening. This beautiful sunflower self-seeded and popped up in our little garden by our front door, it makes me happy each time I see it!

Lou

We have a new family member! Meet Lou, we thought she was a she but today we discovered she is actually a he! He is the cutest little guy, very active and quite mischievous indeed! So far we’ve introduced him to Olive and she seems to tolerate him but our other cat Charlie is not interested in a new family member at all. We’ll have to give him some time to get used to Lou.

Lunch

Lunch!

Veggies

Our veggie garden growing just outside my kitchen, it’s worked so well, the birds haven’t touched our spinach for the first time ever! Yay!

Pepper

I’m so proud of this pepper, it’s absolutely huge and bi-coloured!

Roman

We all attended a Roman themed party on Saturday night, it was such fun to dress up!

Squash

These Souties Squash also self-seeded in the front garden along with the Sunflower, I can’t wait to taste them! (the squash that is!)

Storm

We have been experiencing the most terrific thunderstorms this week! It literally hasn’t rained for weeks and now, the rain seems to be here!! Thank goodness, my poor garden is saved 🙂
