My dear friend Barbara invited a group of her friends to share in a lovely Spring Morning Tea at her home this morning.

We enjoyed such a lovely morning in her home and then enjoyed her lovely garden full of special plants which she enjoys.

The Wisteria was such a lovely sight as you drive towards her home.

Barbara always has such lovely and different plants and flowers to enjoy every time I visit her.

The view across the beautiful vegetable and herb garden back towards the house.

Thank you Barbara for such a lovely morning.........

Toowoomba's Carnival of Flowers is here again.  We have once again entered our garden into the Competition.  We are thrilled to have been placed second in the Cottage Garden Section this year. 

The recent rain has come at just the perfect time.  Although, the weeds are also enjoying the lovely Spring rain.  This view is our back garden.

The front garden is starting to fill in quite nicely.  Most people who come through the garden find it hard to believe that it is only four years old.  We visited the garden which came first in our section.  It was a lovely jam packed garden full of lovely cottage plants - but 16 years old.  What a difference time makes.

This part of the garden is filling in with lots of lovlies which I hope will continue to self seed.  Larkspur, Forget - Me - Not, Valerian and see in the top left corner - Queen Anne's Lace.  I am very excited to have that this year and cannot wait until it flowers.

Some lovelies from the garden.

The Lavender continues to grow beautifully.

If you are in Toowoomba and out and about, please come and visit our garden, we would love to share it with you!  Second Prize in the Cottage Garden and also the Reg O'Shea Encouragement Award.  We are quite excited once again to have received these lovely awards.
