JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

The winter garden.

As I wandered around the garden this wet winters afternoon, I wondered where the "winter"had gone.  It was still a mild temperature and my garden is loving it.  I love colour in my garden...any colour!  The miniature gerberas that I planted last year have not stopped flowering and I think they will continue right through winter.

The azaleas are lovely.  I have not had any problems with them contrary to popular belief that they are difficult to grow.  It is not a big bush but certainly flowers for a long time.

And the last of the tuberose are showing off their magnificence in the garden and emitting that wonderful heady perfume as you walk past them.  They are a perfect addition to the garden.

I quite like the winter garden!
