"Lord, this humble house we'd keep, sweet with play and calm with sleep. Help us so that we may give beauty to the lives we live. Let Thy bounty and Thy grace shine upon our dwelling place." E. A. Guest


Free plants!

  I am so excited!!
Hubby and I were blessed with a number of bulbs and shrubs for our garden :-)
One of his workmates is re-doing his gardens and gave us the first option of taking away the things he no longer wants before it all goes to "green waste".

I have scored a magnolia which I'm keen to see take off here, and lots of hyacinth bulbs and some australian native bushes.
We were also given ( by other people) bluebell bulbs and raspberry canes this week!
Can you guess what I'm doing today?lol!
Hubby has just gone to Bunnings to get some lattice to make a screen for our back corner, and later today we'll be chopping down a scraggly old buddlia tree to allow more space and sunshine for our vegie patch.
Busy busy busy!!!
I'm loving it - I get so excited when I see changes in our home and yard :-D


  1. Very happy for you my dearest friend, I know how much you love your garden. I can't wait to pop over and see the changes. I love the look of your blog..
    Hugs Nell

  2. You have caught the gardening bug my friend! :)


  3. Good luck with the garden it's a good time to be planting right now raspberry canes don't do well in Sydney I have tried maybe too humid, I ended up with sticks.

  4. Hi Trish,
    How lucky to be given a magnolia tree.. I hope it tahes for you.
    I had a little one many years ago..but Hubby got inventive one day and decided to trim the garden edges with a blow torch ...and burnt it down.
    It's OK to laugh...I can smile about it now myself.
    Enjoy your gardening.
