Happy Places

Now that the cooler weather is here I have been spending more time in the garden.  I can see these areas from within the house and I love to rest my eyes on them as I go about my day.

I love this crazy aloe in my Grandma's old jam making vat.  It flowered for the first time this year but was promptly made into garden soup by the children.

I have just planted up this bowl of mini succulents.  I have visions of the whole surface being covered with various textures and colours, fingers crossed.  

This is our pond on a plinth- to make it dog proof.   It is a beautiful little eco system with water cress herbs,  insect eating  carnivore plants and native fish all living happily together.
