Visitors in the Garden

These cute little guys have been visiting everyday since the plums have changed from green to yellow.

They are very welcome to snack, as long as they leave me enough to make a little jam.

I'm loving these groundcovers we got recently from Bunnings. Called Portulaca, "Mexican Doll", by Floriana. They love the heat and are drought hardy, this punnet have spread really well. They should produce a mass of double flowers in cotton- candy clours of vanilla, musk pink, fruity mango and lemon. Sounds tasty!


The first of our "harvest". You just can't beat the taste of a home grown tomato. Unfortunately, pickle #3 picked the green one way too early and it won't sun ripen on the kitchen window sill.

More roses, this time for my bedside table.


  1. Hi Marnie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Glad you like the "vase." It is just a canning jar! =) I love your photos -- especially the one of your garden visitor! Beautiful.

  2. Found you via Sarah's Beach Cottage. Love your photos, especially from your road trip.
    The parrots are so beautiful and exotic, especially where I am looking from right now - we have subzero temperatures and snow.

  3. Thanks for the comment on my BC Good Life Wednesday post. Was going to email a thanks but couldn't find an email address.
    Hope you had a great Australia day
    Loving that Buzz camera!!

  4. Thank you so much for your sweet comment about Casa Cielo. It feels amazing to receive messages from all over the world with this neat world of blogging. Your blog is beautiful! Your pictures are amazing. I am a master gardener in Houston, Texas. I cannot wait until spring and start planting my tomatoes! What's a Buzz camera? I take horrible pictures with my super elaborate SLR. :)
