Rosebud about to open in my garden

Wordless Wednesday: Rosebud

 Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday As I’ve said many times before, I really enjoy spring time when the garden slowly but surely comes alive.

Wordless Wednesday: Tulip time

 Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday I always enjoy spring time when my tulips appear every year without fail. I do nothing to encourage them, they just keep appearing.

A curly-wurly succulent

Wordless Wednesday – 3 May 2017

It’s Wordless Wednesday! Enjoy your Wednesday – wherever you are in the world. The seasonal differences within our huge country never cease to amaze me.  Just a week ago I was up north in Brisbane in Qld where autumn was not evident at all.  It was a pleasant 25 degrees during the day and no autumnal colours were on show. I returned home…
