As we ave moved the blog over to a new host we have had a spring clean and name change. 

A few posts have been ‘lost’ and while that are retrievable to a degree I’m lazy and have decided to just pop up a post of a few of my favourite moments from the last 2 weeks

This week has been eventful. I have painted a lot. The house, not art. The garden has got greener and seedlings are sprouting. Then everything nearly blew away. Literally. 100km/ph winds. Many fallen trees. No electricity. A cable fire. Firemen. Branches everywhere. More painting.

He considers himself quality control – see that peachy colour behind him … Its gone now.

They came, they saw and they conquered. Although it took a while as they had to wait for the power company to turn off the power to the cable was was down and causing the hedge fire! Two trucks closing off the road.

Seedlings still inside to grow bigger and stronger. Heirloom Tomato Copia and Black Adder courgette. Flowers rescued before the storms. More seeds germinating to replace the littlies I planted out that got annihilated by the cats. Grrr.

Elsewhere I have baked cookies -which lasted about 12h – I call that success. Also toddler painting, sunny evenings on th front step and a serious of awesome playdate with buddies. Love my friends.

A little garden round up from the week.

A greenhouse full of seedlings and my carrot bed covered to keep it warm for germination. Technically its still to cold to direct sow …. I find waiting for the seedlings to come up really stressful. An are they/aren’t they alive situation. So far my heirloom tomatoes are going great, the kale and broccoli have come up but are leggy and I’m pretty sure yesterday I saw a little bit of something poking up in the courgette tray. May be.

Garden colour and some pittosporums that Ive planted. Some under the wattle tree and another lot (16) along the far fence line. Hoping the frost doesn’t kill them all.

My Peachcot tree looking great with its pinky blush flowers – particularly after hubby helped me straighten it – it was on a steep wonk before. Peas are growing. Teeny tiny little lavender cuttings in the front of the raised bed. Hoping they grow up and provide a lovely bee inciting, prettifying line.

My other fruit trees, sadly we lost one to leaf curl and the winter weather, but 3 have survived and this ones starting to bud and leaf. The pittosporums along the fence. The hope is they will grow to form a delightful mid-hight bushy green boundary. We’ll see.

I’ve been off colour with sinusitis (infection) so I’m on a variety of drugs including antibiotics to treat it. Now if my teeth would stop feeling like they are being pushed out that would be great. Seriously I rattle like a pill box. My natural remedy loving mother would be having kittens. 

Anyway, the garden. Its looking better. My broccoli are up and producing so we have home grown veg to eat this week. Ok, only one home grown veg, a small serving, toddler sized. But its a start.
