The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul. ~ Alfred Austin

Where do I start.......

Hello, once again I have neglected this blog for quite sometime. It's funny I have been missing from here for such a long time now, that I don't even know where to start. Lots of different things have been happening but nothing in particular to keep me away from here, just the longer I left it, the harder it became to log in and start typing again. Although I've been gone for a long time, I have missed blogging, so am going to give it another go :)

I will start with a few photos from a garden tour that Mum and I went on last October to the Hunter Valley, Blue Mountains and Canberra. It was a fantastic trip and the gardens were amazing and the scenery pretty spectacular.

The above three photos are from the Hunter Valley Gardens which we spent a good part of the day wandering around and taking many many photos.

The next three photos are from the Blue Mountains. Wow. I knew I would enjoy visiting there, it's somewhere I have always wanted to visit. But what I wasn't expecting was for the Blue Mountains to steal my heart! I instantly fell in love with the place and didn't want to leave! I can't wait to visit again. It is so breathtakingly beautiful.

Next up was Canberra, where we visited Floriade, The Australian War Memorial, The National Museum, Tulip Top Gardens and Cockington Green. It was a fantastic trip and these few photos are just a few of the thousands I took. I'm thinking once I have them sorted and organised I will do another blog post but do one post on each area that we visited.

Now for a few photos from around the garden.

Our first watermelon.
We had a great harvest of onions, the best yet. This is just some of the bunches
hanging under the shed lean-to. About to use some of them later today
when I make a caramelised onion and tomato tart.

We are picking lots of cherry tomatoes and eagerly awaiting the bigger toms
to start ripening.

The gorgeous smelling Philadelphius.

The passionfruit vine is growing at rate of knots now it has finally settled in and we have quite a few flowers, looking forward to some yummy passionfruit.

It's another very hot day here and I need to go and finish off some of the watering so will leave it here for now, until next time, have a great weekend.
