After Christmas

I live in a very beautiful place, South Australia. Here are the rocks at Port Willunga, my favorite beach.

There are many beautiful beaches close to Adelaide. Here is Horseshoe bay below.And within a short walk of my home, the beach and jetty at Grange.

Little pots we picked up at the Port Adelaide Art Market before Christmas, we really enjoyed it.

My favorite Christmas presents, flowers from M's garden and the priceless tea cosy from L

My hard rubbish find, the plant stand with a new coat of paint.

The new tanks. Soon to be covered by a wooden slats trellis and I hope to grow a Altissimo (? I think) single red climbing rose on this

The table set for Christmas day lunch.

What a long time since my one and only post in 2007! It reflects how busy I have been in the last few years, I am hoping that the next year will be slower and bring a little more time for enjoyment of the simple things in life like gardening and music.

We are very much in a post Christmas slow down at the moment. We had 35 people for Christmas lunch and it was a beautiful day, mild for Adelaide, about 25 degrees, perfect for lunch under the veranda.

It's hot today, the veggies are back under shade cloth and I don't feel inclined to go out and do any gardening. I will be on holidays in 5 days so plenty of time then for mulching and planting.
