    Thumbs Up Pictures of your Gardens!

    I LOVE gardening. It is part of my daily activities. (I seem to delight in getting my steel capped boots on & getting the soil throughout my hands....building up a healthy sweat ...digging, lifting, landscaping etc).

    When I moved up to our new home (in Queensland)...the backyard was completely stark.....weed lawn & 2 big mango trees...I hated it! eyes: ....I couldn't believe the mentality of the previous home owners...how they could have such a depressing & HOT backyard!! ....It proved to be a blessing in disguise...Now I could plant & plan my own garden....he he..

    Here's a couple of shots taken near twilight. To get a truly established garden takes many years. Mine is only about 2+ years...Only a baby.

    I love your garden.

    I envy your garden.

    No, seriously, great job. It looks quite extraordinary. You should be proud

    Lovely indeed! Skadi, you've done a hell of a job at making that a beautiful garden. Martha Stewart would be proud...and that's a good thing (as she likes to say ).

    It looks very lush in contrast to our starkness here at this time of year. The snow has gone and the ground has thawed but things haven't really started to grow yet (which is typical). Soon though, and all will be green again!

    I've attached som recent pics to show the starkness that is our April--although the day was blue skied and very nice.

    There is almost nothing more wholesome than a woman who tends the land. Your other half is very lucky. But does he realize it?

    Can we swap?....(he he)....I only have a quarter acre block (though 15 minutes from Brisbane). Your landscape is more natural and beautiful...(Love those mountain views!)...I still want my own frozen lake to skate on...he he...(Wrong country I live in!!)...Ah well...I will just be content with my green patch.

    Not trying to sound corny...but yeah, my partner actually appreciates what I do. He admires my strength, my determination, my cooking, house-keeping, artistic/musical ability.
