A few flower purchases...

Over the last couple of weeks I have been purchasing a few plants...a lemon tree for the wine barrel with underplantings of Thyme. Also a few vegies for the vegie patch but not all can be planted out as we are still likely to have frosts. We have also pulled down our old unused bird aviary and have plans to pave this area and build an outside pizza oven. Today I purchased the new plants for this area...Roses, Lavender and Pelargoniums.(A couple pelargoniums pictured below) I have already told hubby that this area is going to be our beer garden! Lol! A cold beer and pizza do go well together.

The children (Master 12 and Miss 9) have been taking an interest in the daily routine of collecting the eggs. Master 12 even has it written down how many eggs they are laying each day. It's quite funny when they bring in the eggs as they know which one laid the egg...Dots, Lucy, Penny or Checkers....lol!

My first Rose to open up...my Roses are always late flowering



This daisy has so many flowers on it and looks so pretty at the moment!


I hope you are all having a great week!
