Backyard Bliss

 Its such a wonderful thing to be able to escape into my yard and appreciate the beauty there.
These beautiful little chicks with their doting Mummy hen.

 She is the most wonderful Mother.
 My favorite color is blooming everywhere , I love calendula, I use it in my soaps and also a balm.
 Poor baby Alaska looks a little miserable in this photo she has just come home from getting spayed. She was moping for the day but the next day she was up and about bounding all over the place. I have no idea how Im going to keep her quiet for 2 weeks.
 I love my ducks they are just so entertaining to watch , pottering around the yard in and out of the pond.
 Perfect time of years for bees. I love watching what plants are their favorites.
 The early morning cockatoos seem to love my almond tree.
 Even orange poppies.

 Now this succulent I love it is just so perfect.
 Home made biscuits for the week
 This gazania is my favorite at the moment its magical
 Now I really need some vege garden fence ideas as somebody likes to dig in these patches.
 The ducks have taken to hiding their eggs in different places everyday. Its a treasure hunt each morning

Im really loving how the backyard is coming along since I have never dug any soil what so ever it is all the layer lasagna style gardening, Caardboard, mulch, horse poop, compost ,pea straw..... you name it what ever is around . Thats my kind of garden the no dig garden.


  1. No dig gardens are great. When you think about it, that's what nature does all on it's own. Loving the peek into your world. Keeping a dog quite for two weeks after an operation...not going to happen. :) Have a fab week.

  2. How come Alaska doesnt have to have a bucket on her head. Tilly did and because of her floppy ears she ended up with an infection in her ears Took longer to recover from that. Fence. Grab some short star pickets from the Big B and a roll of plastic fencing. Cable tie it onto post through the holes. You need to put a post every 150cm to keep it tight. I love jam drops and im putting an order in for my next visit.

  3. Cute chicks!
    Pretty colours in your garden.
    Biscuits look very tempting!
