My summer garden

It is summer in Australia and the garden is looking lovely with all the flowers.  I thought I might share some of the pics with you especially those who need a little color and light in their wintery, snowy lives. 

My partner has been working in the garden and has planted many pots of flowers as well as herbs this year.  Gardening is his hobby now he has retired, and the garden is thanking him for it. It really is a pleasure to sit out there now and we even bought ourselves a large umbrella so we can spend more time out there in the middle of the day.

We tend to spend more time in the garden now and enjoy having a BBQ on the weekends when we really can enjoy it and eating out of doors. My grandchildren love to go out and look and smell the herbs and pick flowers to take home to their mother.

The garden is a lovely place to retreat to, just sitting under a tree to read or just relax.  I hope you like my summer garden.  The only thing missing are some fruit trees especially a lemon tree and I will try and plant one this year.  The front garden is a disaster so that is due for a makeover before winter.

It is wonderful to see some Summer flowers ..... we have had snowfall and frost that has covered up all of our greenery. It is just melting now so hopefully we will have some Spring flowers quite soon.

Thanks Tien and it is nice to see flowers in my garden this year and have a good week too. I hope your winter Polly becomes Spring sooner than you think.
