This month's features
1. Pet Lambs
Meet the latest pet lambs, two merinos abandoned by their mother.
Hee hee. Each year this season always manages to spring a few new surprises...
A budget garden bench, bought for ten dollars and fixed up by Non-Gardening Partner, sits invitingly on the edge of Duck Lawn.
Gardening with hundreds of noticeable aftershocks, hugging trees while the earth jiggles and booms...
Oh yes. This is the easiest thing to do - and often the easiest thing to forget to do.
6. Plant of the Month : Variegated Honesty
Variegated Honesty is such a pretty, no nonsense plant. I'm so grateful that it grows well for me.
7. Animals of the Month : The Moosey Cat Residents
Cats don't like it when their house misbehaves, shakes and rumbles. Even four weeks after the earthquake ginger cat Percy is still very nervous being inside...
8. Garden Quote : A Good Question...
It's a question from a gardening book. I've given my answer - I wonder what yours will be?
Pond Cottage always looks the same (funny, that) but the surrounding scenery is always changing.
10. Forum Focus : For me, the 2010 September 4th Earthquake.
Scary. But so nice to get messages of support from friends around the world.
11. Gardening Advice : A Rose or a Sheepdog?
Some personal grooming advice which may be relevant to readers of British extraction who wear their hair in a fringe...
12. Searching for Moosey : daffodil pictures
- daffodil pictures
- Oh dear. Where to start? There are daffodils galore in all this month's journal pages.
- more daffodil pictures
- Check out these miniature beauties too.
13. Coming up this month : Settled things.
Dare I use the word 'settled'? I'd like settled weather, a settled earth, and a settled Head Gardener. Here's hoping!
