I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

Quiet.calm

This.post.is.the.calm.before.the.storm.....hopefully.
Once.the.builder.arrives....the.building.begins!


Violets.are.everywhere.in.the.garden.beds.here
forming.a.blanket.of.green.mulch.
under.the.shrubs.


They.fill.the.air.with.their.perfume...


and.come.in.three.colours.




Gorgeous!

  1. Mmmm, Violets, I looooove them and have them growing throughout the garden. They're sweet little flowers BUT they do take over, if you're not careful.

    Another beautiful day here in the North East........

  4. You made me realize how much I miss violets, I used to have them but when I moved I forgot to take them with me.

  5. Builders? Hazel, I'm disappointed now. I thought you were going to do the job yourself, single-handed! Though I'm sure it will be more fun just offering "consultancy"...:)

  6. I admire your flowers and photographs so much - they're all beautiful.
    I don't know what I'll do if you ever get a space bar again - I'm so used to the full stop now!
