Meandering Garden Diary: The Flower Tour

Over a year ago now, just after we moved into our current place, the garden started blooming beautifully! While the days got nicer and the rains came, I ventured out with my camera and took photos of every flower I could find.

It’s interesting to look at these photos now and see what happened last year at this time compared to now. Some blooms have been and gone already and others not yet started. I think it’s been colder this spring than last year.

I am 2.

My blog is now two years old. Oh my!

While it has been much quieter on this front in the last few months, my creative exploits have seldom been far from my mind. Whether I’m wishing I had the energy to make something or working on something to post later, it’s still been a happy thought to think about writing here and sharing my fun with you.

The biggest block I’ve faced during my silence here is how to take photos! We’ve moved into a lovely house but I haven’t yet worked out how, where and when I’m to take pictures of the things I’ve finished. With other events in my life I regularly got distracted while trying to solve this dilemma.

Very soon I will have FIVE finished skirts to tell you about! When that happens, photos will need to be taken so I must figure it out!

In the meantime, here’s the only picture I took while in Singapore in April this year.

Singapore!

I’ve also been pottering in the garden a bit, removing weeds and thinking up grand designs for the wonderful flower and vegetable beds I’ll have. This garden has been fairly unkempt for three or fours years but it’s clear that at one point it was loved dearly. Among the overgrown shrubs I found these two:

2013-07-07-12.46-2

2013-07-07-12.48-2

I pretty sure the top one is white silverbeet and I suspect the other bottom one might be a chilli of some kind. Time will tell!

Stay calm πŸ™‚
