This month's features
A light-hearted comparison about travel books versus gardening books - and the winner is...
Charming Creek Walkway is a beautiful flat walk in the New Zealand bush, following an old mine and timber rail track.
Read my journal page about my short holiday to 'The Coast' - that's the West Coast, South Island, New Zealand.
Before, and after, and all the excruciating details of the in-betweens concerning the new stone wall.
The Head Gardener gets in touch again with her feminine sale-shopping side.
6. Plant of the Month : Autumn Flowering Sedums
The main star of the Sedum Spectacular is, of course, the perennial called Autumn Joy. But the bees and I really enjoy my newer sedums, those with rich red foliage as well as flower colour.
7. Animals of the Month : Histeria the Tabby Cat
For months the three youngest cats have been lumped together in identity. Now they're almost grown, individuals in the trio start to shine - like Histeria, the happy tabby.
8. Garden Quote : About Holidays
There's definitely a gardening bias to this quote regarding the usefulness of holidays.
This rose has fragrance and form, it picks well for inside the house, but best of all - its late summer flowers are absolutely beautiful.
10. Forum Focus : A Dog's Life
Several of the forum friends have dogs - you'll enjoy their pictures and stories. It's not just Rusty the Moosey dog who has a great life!
11. Gardening Advice : Seeds
Collecting seeds has to be done when the gardener is in a well-organised mood...
12. Searching for Moosey : rustic garden bench
- rustic garden bench
- I said I'd never ever have one of these in my garden - well, well, well! Check out the Moosey Rustic Garden Bench, lovingly designed and built by Non-Gardening Partner. Perhaps it's the first of many!
13. Coming up this month : Brr...
The weather will get a bit colder, a bit darker... But my gardening heart will be as warm and bright as ever, I promise.
