The Amarylis will take its rightful place for the third year in a row on our Christmas Dinner table. Mum aged 90, who comes out from the nursing home just loves these and grew them every year while she was able to.

This one had a narrow escape as my other half discovered it hiding in the bottom drawer of the fridge during October and was nearly ready to slice into it!

The Backyard Sparrow colony are doing well and getting tamer by the day. I just wonder will I get them eating from the hand yet??

Willow Rods Planted

Willow Rods Planted

Some Willow Rods have now been planted. I never tried this before but it never ceases to amaze me what you can find to do about the garden.

I was searching online for "Willow Rods" before realising I had my very own source of material in the lawn i.e. One mature weeping willow tree.

Tree House & Slab

Well the poor old tree house is no more. I must admit to being a little sentimental as I hammered and sawed it apart. Still, you give your kids wings to fly! We shouldnt be sad when they fledge.


This old stone slab has been peacefully resting under a Huge Ash tree since I moved here in 1991. Its time for a proper use at long last. I think Jacinta may have hit the nail on the head.

A seat it will be, where the tree house used to occupy the space.

The Seeds have arrived. I think I shall wait for the new year before beginning. Conditions should be more favourable for this "project". Sort of Camera, Action & No Lights maybe !!

Indoor Lighting ! Why do I bother? USA
