Ooh they look delicious, I'd like to reach out and pick one out of the image.

Now that the ground has settled in/under my front garden, the time has come to add its second mulch - so now all it's done. Not that a garden ever is done, there are always weeds to weed and plants to plant, no matter how low maintenance you make it.

Now what fun would a garden be if you could ever sit back and say it was finished?

Looking really good flopsy. All that work and upheaval was well worth it

If she doesn't appear once a month Susie feels slighted, and I can't have that

I just found two photos on my negatives from 1983 I have no recollection of having in the prints. This is far from the first time perfectly good photos were never printed, and now I can do them myself am finding a small group of otherwise lost photos for the first time ever.

This is the Thames at Henley

When a white-faced heron misbehaves and takes off just as it being photographed. It meant the bird is a bit out of focus but I was surprised it was in the photo at all.

When a golfer scores 1 under par on a hole it is called a birdie. While out golfing I did not get any birdies but I did see some birdies. These turkeys came walking across the fairway heading toward a creek.

Did you get a recording of them calling you a turkey, dippity? You should sue!

Oh, no, wait... wink

Not a billabong in sight - or a swaggie either. So, what's a coolibah tree doing in the Mohave Desert? It's part of the botanical and cactus gardens at Ethel M Chocolates in Las Vegas. Besides having a nice garden they make great chocolates!

It's actually not hard to have a NO maintenance garden.

Howie, it's okay if the pics are blurry. Doesn't matter anyway, the best pictures are taken with your eyes : )

Gary: I've seen gators, snakes, geese, toads, frogs, squirrels that steal your (golf) balls, deer, elk, foxes, coyotes, bears and moose on a golf course. But I can honestly say I've never EVER seen wild turkeys lol.

Aside: we were golfing (in Florida) with a guy from Colorado and a guy from Florida. The guy from Denver says "are there different rules for hazards in Florida? Like, what happens if I hit a ball and it lands beside an alligator?". The guy from Florida said "well son, you hit another ball".

Jakeroo, aside from all those animals, have you ever seen a sign like this which I found on a course near San Diego? Two things struck me. The word "bebible". That just looks like a neat word. The other was "curso de golf" which I took to mean "the curse of golf". smile
Now that I think about it three things struck me. The third was a golf ball someone hit while I was taking this picture.

Don't drink the water! But if you do and you get a headache, here's some feverfew.



Feverfew can make you feel sick; don't worry, blame it on the golf course. wink

Really enjoying all the pics this month.
Regarding flopsy's feverfew, if feverfew causes headaches and flopsy grows feverfew, could you say flopsy causes headaches?

Feverfew cures headaches!

But it can also make you feel sick. And other things I won't mention on FT. tongue

We're getting some absolutely gorgeous weather here, especially for September. I spent yesterday afternoon with my family exploring the walled town of Concarneau (Finistère, France). This little boat caught my eye:

Would you rather have this boat at the Waimamaku Stream in the Houhora Harbour area of Northland, New Zealand? Seen at a brief stop on the way back from Cape Reinga (photos at some stage in the future).

No boats but a pretty righteous sunset over the Gulf of Mexico down Florida way.
We sat on the beach taking pics of the sun going down for about 10 minutes until we got it at the last possible visible moment. That might sound like a waste of time to some but, believe me, sitting on a warm Florida beach taking pics of the sunset is never a waste of time.

It is so, so beautiful!
And I love those two boat photos, polar opposites, the beautiful reflection and the striking arid scene. Perfect partners.

oh my, that's one gorgeous photo Gary. And nope can't say I've seen a sign like that anywhere. Although we do have signs that say "keep out of the water" (why anyone would think they could drink it is beyond me considering the amount of herbicides and pesticides they use on golf courses - and let's not forget about the goose poop lol). You can get horrible rashes just by walking into water on golf courses. If you can afford to golf, you can afford to sacrifice a few balls lol. Just sayin'. Besides, our sign subtexts would most likely be in French ~. Cool sign though and ouch on the third!

Howie? you and Chavs need to get together and publish a photography book. LOVE the "marooned boat" pic.

Feverfew on its own can cause several bodily discomforts, but it IS an ingredient in some migraine medications. And being one of those sufferers, I can attest to its effectiveness (if you take it soon enough - trouble is, "soon enough" is a pretty fine line lol).

CHristina: your sedum is only now just coming to bloom? Yikes, I've got the British gardening cycle completely out of whack in my head then (no surprise lol)

It's snowing here today. Huge big flakes. I'd take a pic but I'm too depressed ~

I remember Concarneau, albeit nearly 50 years ago. No maintenance garden? Is that the all concrete version? I've been doing lots of no maintenance on mine last week and you can now walk right across each part. It's a start anyway.



For traditional English view fans here's a village green a few miles west of Guildford.

Jakeroo, you may not be that out of whack with the flowering cycle. You can get sedums that bloom at various times of year, there is a very popular Spring one, and this one of mine just happens to be a late summer/autumn one.
