MY GARDEN (for Sassy)

One of my blogger friends asked to see more of my garden ages ago. Now it so happens Sassy is feeling a bit upset at the moment so hopefully a trip around my garden will calm her and make her feel better.














Here is a video I made ages ago. I've even forgotten how I did it. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Good evening Diane...I always enjoy looking at your garden..There is so much to see....
    I too have been able to get back into my garden..Autumn weather has finally arrived here in Adelaide which means much cooler days...I have gone crazy with planting bulbs in preparation for Spring...

  4. Oh my! How WONDERFUL! I love it. Thank you so much! This may sound silly to someone who lives there, but it has always been a dream of mine to visit Australia. I am fasinated by the, land, plants, animals, and culture!

    I just watched the movie Australia, and I was so busy looking at the scenery that I forgot about the plot:)

    This was GREAT!

  9. What a great video - and the music? Perfect! I loved seeing all of your beautiful flowers, shrubs, vegetables AND wildlife! To think even your bird was gloriously colored - wow - and a kangaroo (or was that a wallaby?)I can't even imagine! You have a wonderful, magical garden!

  10. How utterly beautiful Diane. Thank you so much for sharing. I have to ask. Do these beautiful parrots and kangaroo really come often to your garden? If they do, I am so jealous!

  11. Kathleen: Yes, the parrots are here most days but especially when the native trees are in flower. The wallabies a smaller relative of the kangaroo also visit often, especially in dry weather when there is less lush grass in the forest. Then they come and eat my plants, but its hard to be mad with them. They mostly come at dawn so I don't see them that often but I can see the chewed off plants.

    Utah Grammie: You are right they are wallabies.

    Sassy: Well I hope you make it here one day, just like I'd like to go the States, it is so diverse there. I was there many, many years ago for a few weeks.

  14. Wow! This is beautiful. I think I could just sit and stare at it for a long time! It must take so much patience and foresight to create something like this. At my house, I'm lucky if I get the lawn mowed once a week!

  20. Wow Mum! My, how your garden grows! It's looking beautiful! All that effort really pays off. I still remember when we first moved into the house when it was newly built. How many trees were there? Like 2 or 3? If you have any photos of the 'garden' when the house was finished, you should put them up as 'before' shots and then take a shot from the same location now!

    And I loved the music for the movie. Can you remember what it was? Miss you heaps
    Love, Carol

  21. Diane, You have a wonderful garden. I recognized some of your beauties. The native plants attract so many birds and wildlife. Sometimes Wallabies find their way to my place, grazing in the orchard. It is nice to see the sun again. The garden is more then wet.

  23. G'day!
    I would not mind having a garden like that!
    Unfortunately the climate in sweden dosnt suit all that lovely plants though I've got some seeds from a friend in OZ to try. Would love to have a gumtree and some of the lovely birds too. A magpie in my garden what a surprise that would be
