    1. All good. Don’t worry. Doing a biggish job of garden re-modelling at the moment and come the end of the day I am pretty dog tired. So, yes, in effect I have run out of steam! Shoveling dirt has a way of draining one’s creativity after a while.
      But, appreciate the concern,Judy. Sweet of you.

      1. I ask, because I know several people , myself included, who have drifted sideways on their blogs, and some of them just kept drifting.

        Good to know you’re doing garden stuff. Mine is a mess and will be unless I can rent a new back and a new set of knees and maybe a tank of energy to keep it all moving.

        Gettin’ old, and it’s a long way down to that flower bed these days, and a longer way back up.

        we expect pictures, of course, when the remodeling is done. But you knew that.

        1. The back predicament is one I am very familiar with. Fortunately my knees are still doing fine!
          The re-modelling involves clearing around 300sq metres of overgrown land.
          We haven’t decided what we will do with it once it has been returned to it’s original state but a wall is definitely involved. Maybe a purpose built vegetable garden? We’ll see….
          It will take a while, but I have no immediate plans of abandoning my blog.

  1. Are you getting any white-eyes, or is it just us suffering a dearth thereof? Love that avenue … is it home?


    1. I have seen/been aware of very few birds in general. From time to time I hear the White Eyes but haven’t seen any in a while.
      I am reliably informed I need to haul my arse out of bed earlier!
      Young Avenue is not our street. It’s about half a mile away.
      There are a number of Streets/Avenues in our suburb that are similarly adorned in this fashion.
      One can admire and acknowledge the foresight that went into the planning/planting as it is unlikely those responsible would have been alive to fully appreciate the trees.

  2. I love to garden…landscaping..not fruit or veggies…I love Jacaranda trees and in S Fla are Royal Jacaranda, but bright red and there are yellow Poincianas too

    1. I enjoy both. I like the idea of providing food for the table and though my efforts are still meagre there’s nothing quite like homegrown.
      I only wish I had been as enthusiastic twenty or thirty years ago! Things tend to creak more these days! 🙂
