My Daughter's Bed

Ishtar's Bed

Despite the fact that she starts the Leaving Cert tomorrow, my daughter planted up her flower bed today. She did it in her study breaks.

She grew the flowers from seed herself this spring but the bed was dug with the digger.

As you can see, she had her own little helper, younger brother Joshua, to assist with planting.

Isnt it great to see the youth of today taking such an interest in growing food crops. Usually its convenience food that they want at that age. You're lucky your kids are interested in that. My youngest, Zoe, used to be that way. But she is rebelling right now. And she probably thinks that I'm a 'freak' where the garden is concerned. Your daughter has a beautiful name. Where does it originate?

Hey Rachel, I was just browsing through your photos., Noticed your tree ferns in the greenhouse. Why have you got them indoors? Is the weather in the sunny south east not hot enough for them. My newly-acquired one is outdoors. Should I bring it in?

Hi Jacinta. Thanks for the replied. The tree ferns should be outdoors, along with several other plants. But then I have to remember to go to where they are in the garden to water them. Will put them out today, promise!

HA HA I thought as usual, that I was doing everything all wrong. I have only a small greenhouse but one side is only really for storage. but maybe I should scrape back the gravel and plant something into the soil.Mmmm.you have me thinking now. And that can be dangerous. Ha ha
