HI Vicki,
I love reading your Blog and seeing the wonderful photos you take. I am house-sitting in Queensland at the moment (I live in NZ) and am enjoying the great weather and am enjoying going to some of the great Garden Centres here to see what's on offer. I love gardening and I can see you are getting the bug too.



Hi Vickie, so sorry I haven't emailed you back! I haven't forgotten you. Did you make any decisions?

Your garden looks gorgeous. I have never lived in a house long enough to see a garden in it's full glory because we are usually building a new house or renovating!!!

Hi Vicki, your garden looks beautiful! Personally I just love spring and gardening as it decorates the house from the outside and I put alot of quirky things spread around it too, like an old sewing machine, old typewriter and heaps of statues and birdbaths! I just love the effect. I have those daisies too and you will find that they will self seed a litte so you can get freebies or sometimes when the branches get long enough and hang on the ground they also self root so you can cut the branch off and replant. Alot of my flowers self seed from year to year so I rarely have to buy new ones. Like cosmos, daisies, pansies and calendular. Sounds like a wise decision to get everything picked for your new house in advance and it sounds so exciting too! We nearly got a kit home, but opted for a fixerupper in the end. Not sure if that was a wise move as its never ending and still waiting on my extension!! Anyways, love your blog, keep well, Maryann.


Its beautiful! Thank you for sharing!
