Hello lovers of all things garden. Isn't that an amazing sunset? It was taken a few days ago close to where I live on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast. Just stunning. I just love Spring with all the beautiful colours. I can't believe it's been three months since my last post. With the return of winter, … Continue reading March In Our Garden – Operation Clean up Recommences!
HellOoooo, how are you all? Is everyone ready for Christmas? Me neither. I'm very late putting up my Christmas tree and decorations. We were going to do it last weekend, but ended up doing all sorts of running around and, to be quite honest, I just ran out of steam. Soooo, I vow to do … Continue reading December in Our Garden – More Porch Love & a Recycling Solution (at last!)
Hello everyone, Well, all we managed to do this weekend (actually, I should say hubby did all the work) was put the stone slabs in front of the porch to finish it off. We found these lovely little slabs underneath an old bath tub in the garden that had all the soil in it. I … Continue reading December (already!) In Our Garden – Operation Clean Up – Porch-appeal
Hello! How are you all? All well here. It's finally the weekend, after a very long week. The full moon did a number on me yesterday (and everyone else I came into contact with, it seems) with the worst day I've had in a very long time (I'm talking years and years here). I managed … Continue reading November in our Garden – Operation Clean up – A New Garden Bed

But today I got outside for some more clean up - trimmed a couple more shrubs and tidied up the … Continue reading November in Our Garden – Operation Clean-up – Porch love & a Winter Wreath

These past few weeks have been extremely hectic for us with meetings and parties and Thanksgiving and birthdays ... we've been away in Vancouver almost every weekend. And on the weekends we weren't away, Tori has worked the Saturday. So, it's been all I can do to keep up with the housework, and the garden … Continue reading October in My Garden – Operation Clean Up
Hello gardeners and non-gardeners (I'm sort of in-between), It finally stopped raining here, so I'm hoping my brussels sprouts will recover - they are looking very unhappy indeed. I took the opportunity to get outside and putter around. I harvested the rest of the tomatoes as it's getting below 10 deg. C at night here … Continue reading October in Our Garden – Beautiful Sunshine, Fall Flowers & a Bear
