Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.

Confession time I am a curbaholic, recycling and re purposing items give me a sense of satisfaction. Making something useful out of trash, take for instants this water bowl in my header. Started it's life as a concrete bird bath, with a little broken pottery, tile adhesive and a sealer and I put together this beautiful water bowl. I love Winter time when the camellias come into blossom, floating Camellia flowers brings a little charm into the garden.

What I am always on the look out for is plants and cuttings. With green fingers and lots of care these plants thrive, and soon get planted in the garden, costing me basically only my time. Nurseries are my No1 favorite shop, followed closely by craft shops.My favorite plants are agapanthus, pansy, lavender, camellias, clivia and roses. Once I found a whole boot full of agapanthus, just freshly dugout and dumped on the curb. No need to invite me twice, grabbed the lot. They're all planted in my garden now.

I hope to have a hedge of these lovely fragrant roses, haven't got a better picture of it yet

We do have a little creek running through our property with pretty water lillies growing in it.

Thanks for visiting


  1. Hi Rina, Just popped over to say Hi! The new blog looks lovely. I really like how you have done the water bowl. I like to rescue things and try to repurpose them as well. Hubby scratches his head alot. I think it is a genetic thing. Hugs, Deb
