Its Sunday!!!!



yep its here again,and this is my first piccy as I am so totally pleased with it that I had to show it off...
now it doesn't look much, but this what it was carrying.....

Mulch! wonderful mulch...(sing a little ditty)

Isn't it just so yummy!!!!Lots of sticks though as its from Eucalypt stumps I think from the clearing in Kal where the new town dam is being built!

This was delivered last Thursday to the school as part of a donation from a company specialising in garden soils etc.The lovely Principal has given me full use of that pile( which doubled overnight) to apply as I wished to the school garden beds as I see fit....boy its like Christmas,i have been battling soil problems for a while and this will see a lot of water saved (and money too)


This a view of a row of nearly mature Alyogyne huegelii,a lovely hardy native hibiscus.I noticed that if left a bit dry it will flower much more profusely but it is a very green ,almost unnaturaly green as compared to a lot of other natives!
Heres a close up of the bush,a bit blurry but the wind was moving the bush about and after dropping my camera a few weeks ago it doesn't focus a well...
A better look at these gorgeous flowers on a small plant that is planted to the left in first photo!

As requested by several fello Green Thumbers, this is a close up of the Fire Embers plant I featured last week,again a bit fuzzy but you can see the typical Grevillea flowers!

Well thats it for the Green thumb,

To the kniting side I have recieved all my Blue Faced Leicster roving all 2 kg and it is gorgeous to feel but I get the opinon that the English mills are a bit odd with the milling as it smells distictly of sheep pee so it will be aired a LOT before I start spinning(at least I will have the house to myself,LOL)

Secondly I have finished the first sleeve of the Central Park Hoodie(I had to fog the two as I got the needles mixed up and wasn't sure what I used!)

ThirdlyI am lusting after this....louet its lighter than the Ashford Joy,I could take it anywhere.....

PS picies next time......

  7. I can almost smell that beautiful mulch. I think mulch sales have gone through the roof all over Australia. I know I've never bought so much. I think we are in for a very long hot summer. Have nice week.
