"An optimist is the human personification of spring"

(Susan J. Bissonette)
Bella enjoying a lazy spring afternoon on lovely newly mown, clean lawn.  Which wont stay clean for long as this dog poo's more than any other dog I have ever come across, I swear more comes out than goes in, and she even manages to poop a couple more times on her evening walk!  She also kills the lawn wherever she wee's too, we are trying those doggy rocks in her water from city farmers at present, which they promise me work, but I'm yet to see the evidence.  Apart from that she is a loving faithful creature, I just wish she could dig a hole somewhere, (not in my garden) & ablute into it, covering it up nicely when finished!

Another dry winter finished

My little Kalanchoe Barharensis making friends with the birds nest fern
Well we are just coming off the back of another dry winter for the farmers, with well below average rainfall, meaning a scant lot of work for us.  Hopefully all the hard yakka I put into my garden last autumn will pay off - lots of composting & mulching.
I have been quite busy getting my heavy rigid truck licence too, was quite proud of myself to pass first time. Tomorrow Im off to drive the truck & load the chief's plane, my first time on my own!
And also putting our house on the market for round 2 of  punishing home opens ( yuk) again!

 Chrysocephalum Apiculatum sunburst
This little native everlasting is so tough, doesnt need much water & flowers consistantly.
Ptilotus joey
love this native, this is its second year, they really only look good for the first season, should be treated as an annual.

& of course good old aeonium schwartzkop.
