I love Spring

It is such a beautiful day in Brisbane today, the sun is shining, and I'm actually wearing a singlet outside and its HOT out there! Summers not far away!

I forgot to post a pic of Shavez without his tail, this pic was taken not long after the op, so he still had his bucket on... he's going great now, doesn't seem to miss it at all, and that funny little "bunny rabbit bum" is just too cute!

Also, as promised, heres a pic of our new vegie garden, this was taken just after OH had completed it, before we planted anything...



And here's some pics from today - that is pumpkin sprouting in the background, and beside it to the left you can just see some little tufts of carrot. In the front is zucchini and cucumber...

And here's some snow peas starting to climb the wire...
We've also got tomato and lettuce starting to sprout... . So far the celery and capsicum have yet to show any signs, I have my doubts that they will now.

Beside the vegie garden we've got this great big mulberry tree - it grows like crazy, OH is constantly lopping it back, but right now its laden with berries, I've picked a few - they are delicious, but now I'm wondering what I'm going to do with them! Might have to do some internet research on what I can cook them into...


Well I'd better get back out there and enjoy the sunshine, might go wash the car soon - enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Your vegie garden looks great Hilary. As for the mulberries, why not make jam with them?

We've got your weather down here as well, it's 24 and gorgous. Such bliss. :o)

Hi Hilary,
You may not remember me but we met at Di B's a while ago for lunch:)
I was just wondering where you got your garden surrounds as we are wanting to start up our own garden?

Best wishes,
Gillian

Your garden looks fantastic Hilary.

Its really nice weather here in Adelaide as well. Way too hot for my long run though...

Winter is better for running.

Great veggie garden. That will be so lovely once you get it going. Shevaz's rabbit tail is a bit cute. I'm loving the brightness of the sun in your pics!
