This month's features
Haru the pet merino is now one year old, and it's her first visit to the shearing sheds.
We'd only been back from Canada a short time, and couldn't return for a sudden memorial service. So I created a small garden instead.
Dictionaries used to be dusty volumes in the bookcase - before the joys of checking online. I was flicking through my old definitive Chambers dictionary and came up with the definition of a 'garden'.
The local Garden Club organised a trip to visit mid-spring country gardens. I couldn't resist seeing how colourful and flowery they would be, compared with my own.
Check out my spring collection of beautiful blue flowers.
6. Plant of the Month : The Patio Wisteria
My goodness this climber is flowering beautifully on my house pergola. It must be that special pruning regime...
7. Animal of the Month : B-Puss
Dear B-Puss was laid to rest in the Hazelnut Orchard at the end of October, next to the dogwood Eddie's White Wonder. He will be much missed!
8. Garden Quote : Sheep
Warning - after reading this journal page your woolly images will never be the same...
A beautiful rhododendron captured in the afternoon sunshine - Percy Wiseman is my favourite image this month.
10. Forum Focus : Journeys
Bambi has joined in the forum fun with her own journey photo-documentary. You can take her journey through the countryside of Kent - to work!
11. Gardening Advice : A Weeding Acronym
Weeding is definitely an annual and perennial topic. Check out my latest weeding revelations in the journal.
12. Searching for Moosey : all black dog
- all black dog
- I can't exactly do a 'black dog', since my dog is creamy and caramel in colour. But we won't mention the rugby, will we...
13. Coming up this month : More rhododendrons and roses.
Lots of beautiful coloured flowers to enjoy as summer gets closer.
