Today in the garden


Camellia in bloom at the moment and they made a beautiful pink carpet.

A superb pink double frills

Winter is really upon us. Mornings are really cold and it takes ages to warm up in the morning, so bed for now is the best place you could say. But not for long. In spite of the chill there is plenty to do and above all I want to show you around the garden and what is going on at the moment.  I have planted the the broccoli, the cauliflowers, the turnips, radishes of course, the lettuces, the leeks and not to forget the broad beans. The bandicoots (type of big rabbit like marsupial typical to Australia, but they are not rats as they have a very long nose to DIG )  have also rallied around the garden beds and they are making sure that everything that I plant is turned upside down. Dug deep, scattered everywhere and asking me to fix it so that next time they’ll do the same thing. Not next time, in fact this very evening it will be back to square one. Peter has plugged all the holes…in vain!

The rain has arrived and we are back inside for a coffee and a cake.

The other day the Monty mighty resident pythons managed to infiltrate the chicken coop and had one for dinner. After it went back into the shed an rested for the day or a few days. Well, you can see for yourself the photos were taken just a little while ago. Since then, after doing a mix of concrete for the studio, there was a little left over and all the holes in the chicken coop have been plugged. Hopefully no more rats or pythons.

In fact around here we do not have any of the big rats that are found in towns but bush rats which are different and not so aggressive. Nevertheless they never miss a chance to eat my peas or any other seedling that I just manage to plant. So, I do them indoors now and plant them when they mature enough. BAd luck!

It found a pack post for a rest!
After a good feed, staying put in the shed
