A walk around the garden. Saturday 18th September

As I walk out of my kitchen door I go out into a new world of flowers which have opened just in time for spring. The pansies are looking beautiful all in a row on the window-ledge of the kitchen so I can see them whilst I am in the kitchen. This leads to the patio with a table (which will be used for bar-b-ques in the summer) with a lovely watering can and a bowl with some tulip bulbs which hopefully will bloom. (watch this space for more pictures)

The white flower is a Camellia which I would have to say is next to being my all time favourite flower after the rose. The other flowers are Azaleas, the white one with pink around the edges is aptly named lipstick. The whole patio is abloom with colour but thought I would just show a few of the nicest. The small purple flower is a wisteria which has not yet come into full bloom, but still shows promise of being spectacular again this year.

The ordeal with my eye is hopefully over. The surgeon is happy with the laser treatment and I don't need to go back till next year to see him. Some good news on the job front, I have been made permanent in my role (I was on a secondment for 1 year) so I won't need to worry what will happen at the end of the year now.

Just off to make myself a cup of tea, so will sign off and say happy blogging to all

Barbara :-)

  2. Hi Barbara, Cate sent me across. Its nice to meet you. Great to hear that your eyes are doing well, and congrats on your permanent placement at work.

    Love the flowers, it is still quite wintery here so my flower garden is looking very sorry at the moment. As it is my birthday in a few days, my hubby was going to help me today in the garden as a early present, but we had to buy a new computer today so spent most of the day setting it up.

    I spent a few days over in Perth last week, I couldn't believe people were walking around in scarfs and jackets, I was quite warm I think it was around 17-19 degrees when I was there...I was quite sweaty by the time we walked to the conference around 20 minute walk...

    I always stay at Miss Mauds when I am there, and had to have a piece of Princess cake :)

    Sorry to prattle on so much, I will add you to my blog list for others to find also. Welcome back, bye, Tamara

  3. So happy to see you blogging again, I have missed you. Thankyou for a lovely morning tea on Saturday...I got to see the beautiful blooms in person...lucky me :) Keep blogging... Lotsaluv...Carol XXX
