this year for mothers day i asked for a garden. my request was simple. ground cover roses, some flowers and a little ground cover plant that would spread between the spare spaces. i added a little herb garden to my list as well, once again simple foods that we were sure to eat. so on mothers day we traipsed off to the local nursery and each picked a rose and lots of other pretties for the planned plot. nurseries are such lovely places, i could spend ages dreaming of how i could buy every plant and create my own garden oasis...anyhow after spending way more than i expected we headed home to prepare our plot and plant our bounty. we had such a great time as a family and have been rewarded with full vases every week and fresh lettuce and other greens for our salads. we even cleared out the cubby house and created a coffee house where we seem to spending most of our time now...very nice indeed. i am so glad i asked for a garden, not only am i enjoying my flowers but i am enjoying the time spent with mick and the girls each afternoon.
loads of pansies which just haven't stopped blooming. so pretty and a great reminder of my childhood
the passion fruit is still fruiting, expecting it to slow down soon. truly THE tastiest passion fruits ever!
i have been picking flowers ever since we planted the garden. i was told the more i picked the pansies the more they would grow and that advice was right.
i bought these little bud vases at the thrift shop. some people think the ones with the roses on the vase are tacky but i just cant get enough of them.
there is so much more to show but i think i have overloaded on photos once again.
hope your week is full of sunshine.
