Hi everyone, hope your all feeling on top of the world were ever you maybe.Spring has been heralded in with beautiful sunshine. To say the least was to nice to be indoors, started Saturday in the Garden, then went around to my Sister Pauline's , Gwen also joins in for afternoon tea
Pauline made us fresh scones which we had with jam and cream "yummy". This has been happening quiet a few weeks were we have a little get together for a few hours , chat, Knit we are all making A throw rug or some call it a knee rug, or talk about what were doing on the computer. A very nice relaxing afternoon had by all thank you Pauline . Sunday spent all day in the garden tidying up , weeding,and trimming back after the frost,So that was my weekend. to end with a few photo's
I just cleaned this area up after repotting these Fuchsia's into hanging baskets and Clayton decide it was time for a rest,
first Rose of the season out
now the frosty mornings are gone, I decided to bring my Wheel barrow out from under the veranda
a little patch of my Phlox comming into flower
A pot of Hyacinths

Before and After the frost: My Jade is to big and heavy for me to will give it a good trim and will come back better than ever till next frost.

Love your hyacinths, Jen. Don't they have the most wonderful perfume? Unfortunately it's too hot here for them.

I love your wheelbarrow full of succulents.

Hi Jeanette! It's always uplifting to see all these photos of beautiful flowers. It must be a nice experience to walk in your garden.

I like scones but we haven't tried making some at home.

Hi Jeanette,
Roses yet? I haven't seen any here in Melbourne yet, and certainly not in Eltham.
Loved the fuschia baskets, it all looks so pretty and peaceful. I don't have much success with hanging baskets as we face northeast and the winds give the baskets a rough time, not to mention the birds pulling them apart to get the coconut fibre for their nests! Maybe when I can convince himself to build a pergola I might have some success.

Hi Jeanette. Your Fuchsias are looking pretty good already. Do they lose all there leaves in the winter? Your barrow is looking good too. Bob.

Clayton looks like he did all the work and had to rest.
Your flowers are beautiful. I especially liked the rose and the wheelbarrow. How long did it take to get it looking so fantastic?
Enjoy my visit.

Hi again Jan ~~ Thanks so much for your comments, glad you liked my camelias and the jokes. The man who came to do the lawns did a really good job, so he can return.
My dear friend Karen gave ne another Nice Matters award, so I have to pass it on to another 8 people. So, guess what - you're one of them. The logo is on top of my sidebar and Karen is on my
blogroll. Take care, Are you still coming on 24th Sept to meet Connie aka Meow? Love, Merle.

Glad you enjoyed the biscuits, Jeanette. I am rather partial to my Portmeirion pottery. In fact, I am tempted to go back to my favourite shop (In Glenferrie) and buy another piece, but I think himself might be a bit annoyed about that. Happy gardening! I do so enjoy this time of year.

Jeanette, I love your potted plants and would love to have some out the front of my house....and I did a year ago but one night late there was a noise and when Rob got up all our plants and garden seats were gone!!! off to a trash & treasure market I am sure.

So I enjoyed seeing yours very much.

Hi Jen,
What a lovely peek at your garden. It reminds me that things are starting over fresh in your part of the world. Here we're getting ready for fall. A wonderful never ending cycle..
