Here is a quick photographic update of my gardening efforts this year.


  1. @machinehuman, Thank you very much :)

  2. Stunning, gorgeous flowers. Love the layout of the photos too.

    My G T S is shared.

  3. Wow, Claire those are beautiful. :)

    I hope your Mum is well.

  4. The garden here is not that far along. Great photos.

    I gave you an award for creative blogging.

  5. Very nice.

    Green thumb? I thought this post was going to be about something that needed to be treated with antibiotics.

    Thank you for the pleasant surprise.

  6. What a great way to make a collage. Happy GTS.~~Dee

  7. Roses are red
    Violets are purple
    Your collage is sweeter
    Than maple syruple

    Boo. I know.


  8. I see you like containers. I really like to have flowers in containers too, but they are short lived here. It gets too hot, even in the shade of the patio. I would have to water four or five times a day to keep anything alive this time of year. However, I do have container flowers from February until May, and then again from mid-September until the first frost--if we have one.

  9. @erika, Cheers me dears :)

    @hootin, Thanks, I have been playing with a collage maker its very cool.

    @teena, Thanks :)

    @Crazy/Tisha, Yeah and made up with how they look. The mum is doing okay thanks for asking :)

    @Laura, The weather here has been weird as usual. From lovely sunny days, to howling wind, to rain, back to sunny again. I hope it doesn't mess with the flowers too much. Loved the award and what you wrote :)

    @Da Old Joe, I love that you know me so well as to expect a septic thumb. You can dig through my hiking posts and read about me popping a puss filled blister if you like? :)

    @Dee, Thanks for that, I might do a post on how I did the collage, seeing as people seem to like them :)

    @Relax Max, come closer, closer, closer.

    15, 15, 15.

    @Aiyana, I love containers, the mum is in a wheelchair at the mo so she loves them too as she can still garden that way. I normally start in late April and the containers can last all the way into October, depending on what I plant. Its a shame yours are short lived :(

  10. @regretful, who knew flowers were your thing :)

    Cheers indeed.

  11. Beautiful flowers, the colors are amazing.
    You photograph very well and most of the flowers you photographed, I happen to have in my garden.
    Sometimes I think we green thumbs are aligned in our thoughts.
    I am most happiest when I am in my garden planting.
    Some amazing things happen in the garden, the play of life and death is clearly seen in the garden.
    I once watched my mother bring back to life a plant that I truly believed was dead and there was no hope for it.
    I threw it away only to watch her restore it.
    A miracle to me but the usual to her.
    Wisdom and patience is needed in the garden but also a good eye. There is lots to learn in the garden.
    Wishing you life's best.

  12. Wow you have some green fingers they say over here: the capability to work with plants and gardens! It looks wonderful. Your blog is so beautiful, I enjoy reading your posts.
