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.

Vases of Flowers

Anyone that knows me well also knows that I love flowers.  I have filled our garden beds with as much colour and scent as I can manage.  But the best part of having flowers growing in the garden is that you can bring them inside and they instantly brighten up a corner in a room.  I have a little vase of flowers sitting on the bedside table in our bedroom at all times.  This week the vase holds roses, some variegated hibiscus and a pretty little white feathery flower whose name I can't recall.

The predominant colours in the garden are all the shades of purple.  When I was about six years old I was a flower-girl for my godmother and I wore the most beautiful lilac dress.  From that time on I have loved the colour.

  1. if it ever rains, I must get some punnets of pentas and put them in everywhere, they make SUCH good cut flowers, seem to last forever! I may even have one laying dormant or hidden in the undergrowth still, but anything a bit water loving has died out of late (even though I have been constantly watering, the hot dry year has taken its toll!)
