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.

Jade Spectacular

I take photos of the Jade Vine and each year, and as I photograph it I think how spectacular it is.  It has now been in the garden three years and it is spreading further along the pergola, albeit, slowly!    Philip says, to him, it screams "tropical" and I have to agree.
It has been a cold (for here) winter and we haven't seen much sun over the past three months.  All the flower seeds that were planted will burst out of the ground as winter slowly draws to an end and we look forward to Spring.  I can't wait!

I will try to get a photograph of someone standing beside these flowers.  They are well over 1500mm.
