{garden tour}

who wants to have a peek in our garden ?


the snow peas are fruiting like mad
we go out and pick and eat snow peas straight off the plant every day
they are so crisp and sweet !
help yourself ... there are plenty ...


some of you commented that you didn't know coriander bloomed
well, i don't know i you can call it blooming, even though i did
technically, it's called flowering
once it flowers, the leaves aren't that great to eat
but ... you get the seeds out of the flowers which you can use to grow more coriander
or you can grind to make ...

wait for it ...

ground coriander !!!


we've got roma tomatoes


and cherry sweetbites that are finally getting some color


heaps of strawberries too
we are slowly transferring our strawberries to hanging pots
to give us more room in the garden for veggies


and look ... green beans !!


look what the sky did while i was out there taking photos tonight

i just love it

the clouds

the sun

the colors


well, google reader tells me you all have been busy posting
since i last stopped by so i think i will finish this up and pop over for a visit ...

Last night I dreamed I came to live with you...I had a VERY new little baby and my husband and I were doing missions on the coast of Australia, but since the baby was SOOOO new (as in only a few weeks old), I did a lot of hanging out with was were wonderful helping me adjust to being a new mommy. Sure was a nice dream!! Just thought I'd share :-)
