Seedling BonBon 2016 has not yet reached its full potential, but I am sure it will in its second year of flowering. So I give it another chance.

Seedling Carina 2016 has not reached its full potential, another chance for this one as well. If it does not improve it will be discarded. Generally the second flowering is better. 





Seedling Mona 2016


There are more, but some have not yet flowered.

Trees, plant trees!



Chickens, Kitchen and Garden" work well together.  I could not imagine living without these essentials for a healthy and happy life.





A herb garden is a must it might be just a few pots to tend every day.



...and sometimes you might be inspired by something growing in the kitchen garden.

Fresh from the garden..you are what you eat.


Citrus fruit are slowly changing colour.


It was a big one, nearly one kg. Rollinia a big tree with an abundance of fruit.

A bouquet of roses from the garden.


Awesome flowers of a native paperbark, food for many birds and insects from ants to bees.


At this time of year the kitchen garden is prolific.

Red is a prominent colour in winter. Gerbera.



Slavia Adenophora flowers through winter into  late spring.



Geraniums like the cooler seasons.


Tomatoes are  can be harvested nearly  throughout the year.

Winter is blooming colourful.


Dendrobium Orchids, as beautiful they look, as easy they are to grow on trees.


Nothing can replace the wonderful geraniums.
