March In Our Garden – Operation Clean up Recommences!

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!

December in Our Garden – More Porch Love & a Recycling Solution (at last!)

Christmas fir trees

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!)

December (already!) In Our Garden – Operation Clean Up – Porch-appeal

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

November in our Garden – Operation Clean up – A New Garden Bed

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

November in Our Garden – Operation Clean-up – Porch love & a Winter Wreath

Hello everyone. It's getting chilly this past week - the kind of weather that makes you want to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate. And I've been doing that. 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

November in Our Garden – Operation Clean up – Leaves & Mowing

Hi everyone. I hope you've all had a good week. It's rained a LOT here over the last 6 days, but we got a bit of respite on Friday so after work, I made a start on raking up the leaves in our back yard and gave the Angel a little face wash If you've been … Continue reading November in Our Garden – Operation Clean up – Leaves & Mowing

October in My Garden – Operation Clean Up

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

October in Our Garden – Beautiful Sunshine, Fall Flowers & a Bear

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

October In Our Garden

Hi everyone. I hope you're all well. Well, it’s been a soggy Fall so far which is really disappointing. When I look back on photos from this time last year, it was beautiful sunshine, crisp Fall days and evenings around the fire pit with hot chocolate! Our garden is doing okaaay, but not very happy with … Continue reading October In Our Garden

September in Our Garden

Potatoes

Even though Summer's almost over, it's not over for our little vegetable garden. The Nasturtiums are just beginning and our (free) tomatoes just keep getting bigger and bigger and more abundant unlike the poor old tomato plant we bought at the nursery, which has only produced 3 tomatoes so far from this huge plant. Not … Continue reading September in Our Garden
