My back Yard

Hi friends hope all's well with you and yours were ever you maybe .
I am very well, and now we are having lovely spring weather, if I am not bowling Im spending my spare time trying to get my back garden free of those troublesome weeds that seem to have taken during over during winter.
Now on with a few photo's
click to enlarge

This is what I see as I open my back door
My Patio
This area is at the side of the fernery, in the green and terra cotta pots my bush roses are just starting to come into Bud, the cream pot has a sick Daphne in it , I thought I had lost it over winter but is starting to show a few green shoots. and behind the ABC kids is a young Bird of Paradise , the snow drops in front have finished flowering .
A front on view of my fernery

Right, pour the wine, get some nibbles out and let's have a bit a natter around the pool...

Your place is lovely, Jen, and so inviting. You realise that putting up those photos will make people decide to come and see you for a glass or a cuppa! You're going to be inundated with visitors over the coming months now, you have been warned...

Hi Jen Your Fernery is is wonderful. I have a large staghorn here on the farm. Nice to hear from a neighbour from Aussie. My brother and sister live in Gosford north of Sydney. Love your humour and your blog. I'll be back often to visit.

It was so nice to see your beautiful patio and the plants and flowers. It's especially nice since ours are all disappearing as winter is approaching.
Have a good weekend.

Hi Dear Jan ~~ Your garden and fernery are beautiful and a real credit to you for keeping them that way. It all looks terrific. Thank you for your comments, and I am glad you enjoyed the Poem by Helen S. Rice and the jokes and also the Slow Dance Poem and the latest jokes and quotes. Take great care of yourself, a couple of hours in the garden sounds like hard work. Love, Merle.

G'day, g'day! So nice to hear Slim Dusty! I am really impressed by your garden. It's so beautiful, completely different from my daughter's property, which is mainly rainforest. Thanks for visiting!

Hi Jeanette, it looks like you have lots in your garden, I like the way its all laid out. Can the shading material you have over the table and chairs be taken away if you want or is it fixed? If you want to see what Tommy has been up too at night school I've posted a few pics for you to see. Have a good weekend, Bob.

Hi Jen,
Your backyard is just gorgeous. I'm sure you enjoy all the time you spend out there. It's a never-win situation with the weeds though, isn't it??

What a very lovely and beautiful place to step out your back door into. Love all those flowers. When I visit I plan to have a cup of coffee in the morning in those chairs and a glass of wine at night. Thanks for sharing. Peace
