Excitement in the garden!!!

To look at this picture one would think, not much to get excited about, well for me there is a lot to be thankful for.

The garden was full of a noxious type of plant with striated leaves and I pulled this along with a lot more dahlias out of this small garden near the side door to my house.

The shoots near the front are bulbs and nearby are more just under the surface, just waiting to show their heads. Now they can bloom for spring as they had no chance before due to the plants choking them and shutting out all the light.

There's some personal type of analogy here happening as I was feeling choked with lack of vision and now feel as it has cleared away.

Bulbs galore


I am hoping my new place is good for bulbs. I emtied out some pots where the bulbs have vitually dried out and this is the amount probably tripled of what I put in a year ago.

Bulbs of Hyacinth, Tulip and daffodils. Lots of fun to come!!!
This was the sky before the storm hit last night.

It will be a garden paradise

The western side of the house, the front.
Front gate which has not been used in some time!!!
A lovely callistemon but a huge thistle too!!!

                                              A special pondering spot.

A rainforest gully on the property.

I am looking forward to sharing my new home with many animals and people. There is lots of work to be done but I see it as a worthwhile challenge and I welcome advice along the way.
