Hello there! It's 2011. Crazy, huh? We had a nice break. The usual - eat too much, do too little. It was the BEST! We have really been enjoying hanging out at home. Back to work today but the last few days were sunny and just... magic. Yesterday Andrew walked around and took some pics of the garden, which is full of big happy plants. They are loving all the rain we have had lately. I looked through some photos of the garden from last January and can't believe how much the garden has grown in that time. Turns out we just may have a green thumb or two after all.
Let's look back at how it looked on the 4th of January last year,
A few weeks later the deck is finished and most of the plants in.
This is what our
jungle garden looks like now. The garden is home to visiting birds, two sleeping cats and lots and lots of frogs. It is so lovely sitting in the spa surrounded by the greenery. Like our own little resort.
So whilst our garden is flourishing with all the rain, I am reminded that mother nature has not been so kind elsewhere in our state. If it isn't a drought in Queensland, it's flooding. I feel so grateful and fortunate (and guilty) that we are safe and dry in our home right now when so much of Queensland is flooded. The enormity of the floods is too devastating to comprehend and unfortunately, it is far from being over. If you can, please open those pockets and donate at any major bank to the flood appeal.
