I bet you're all jealous of my garden, all set for the 21st century - bits of wood, weighted-down membrane, and rocks. Plants would spoil it! wink

No doubt, easy to care for.

Waiting to go outside where we belong.

Just learning how to use my new camera, ignore date. I have not figured out how to change it.

Flopsy, you know what would complete your new easy care garden - a few gnomes scattered around and maybe a pink flamingo or two for contrast.

You wait months for a railway then two come in a row. Typical. Alexandra Palace.

Hahahaha! In a recent visit to a garden centre I saw a 9 to 12 inch ornament in the shape of a slug - it must be every gardener's ideal gift. Except mine!

The Hydro Grand Hotel (an Historic Places Trust category two building but looks like it will be pulled down and the site developed into something else) and piazza from the boardwalk at Caroline Bay, Timaru.

The forget-me-nots have been especially good this year, been in full flower for a few weeks.

Very nice Christina, I've just been weeding around them today as well. Somewhat of a theme (mainly as I'm back walking the streets of London after driving hundreds of miles this year) is another railway, this is the route from East Finchley to the sidings in Highgate, while the passenger route is underground.



Not having my stool with me I actually had to raise my arm over the bridge and keep trying different angles before I got this right.

The monument to Michael John Burke at the top of Burkes Pass, the entrance way to the MacKenzie Country in South Canterbury. The wording is not easy to read in the photo but this is what it says...

To put on record that Michael John Burke, a graduate of Dublin University and the first occupier of Rancliff Stn, entered this pass, known to the Maoris as Te Kopi Opihi in 1885.
O ye that enter the portals of the Mackenzie to found homes, take the word of a child of the misty gorges and plant forest trees for your lives. So shall your mountain facings and river flats be preserved to your children's children and for evermore. 1917.
This pass is 2200 feet above sea level.

This is one of the few shops I knew still unchanged from the 70s, on my previous patch in East Finchley.

After going to Abilene, TX, this weekend, on the way back to Dallas, I went through this town...known for its own rendition of Dr Pepper.

That's funny Dave - my husband (known as Maynooth on FunTrivia) is from Dublin, California. I believe there are actually SEVEN towns called Dublin in the USA.

Every year since we have been here, which is about 25 years now, we have pheasants nesting in the garden. Pleased to say this year is no exception. Obviously not the same pheasants, I don't know how long they live in the wild but not that long, but I like to think that it is descendants that keep coming back each year and we have been home to a long line of birds.

I love the inside of the big poppies I have in the garden. The black pollen always fascinates me, the bees seem to like it though

Sorry everyone but you should know me by now...



A little back story, when I was 8 my neighbour took me horse riding, the stables are still there, and these are the results.
