What’s growing in my backyard

After a week of work committments, my head has hardly moved away from the computer. This has left me with the feeling of “cabin fever”! I was so pleased that we had a holiday on Wednesday – International Workers Day (Labour Day) – and I was NOT going to spend another moment sitting! I was in the garden, playing with the newbie chickens and Skollie (who has calmed down quite abit!) and […]

Mid-Autumn in Two Gardens for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

The weather is changing and so has the gardening energy. The tempo has died down to a slow pace. The time to reflect and review has set in. The blooms that have decided to stay are still delighting the soul. Here’s what’s blooming in Barbie’s garden in April 2013 The enthusiasm has been packed away and replaced with a more relaxed view of where to go from here. Funny, that autumn always brings this […]

Earth Day clean up

I normally miss all these important dates – like “Earth Day” and “Water Week” and read about them in the news paper I lay in the chickens bedding weeks later. So I decided that Earth Day (wednesday, 20 March) was my day in the garden. I spent time cleaning up and looking at ways to help the Earth in my own backyard. We have been thinking of adding a greywater system for […]

Front garden activity

This has been such a busy weekend in the garden for me – no longer could I stand the disheveled look and the hanging, overgrown bushes. I had the energy and the will-power to get it right! With my boots and gloves on, I got out the lawn mower,  edge trimer, wheelbarrow, sheers and spade! The neighbour was thunderstruck! She could not believe that I did it all single-handedly! I even had […]

Late summer in Two Gardens for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

When the heat ebbs and the lazy afternoons have been replaced with plans to re-do the beds, then you know that summer is going to be replaced real soon. February has always been the best month of summer, but it looks like this summer was really short! Here’s what’s blooming in Barbie’s garden in February 2013 I am really keen to yank out all my used and dead foliage and get my beds ready […]

Garden Colour

I have been in a gloomy mood of late, with my favourite chicken not doing well. Buffy has been suffering from Bumblefoot and had a major operation in December on both her feet. But alas, it is back – regardless of all the medication and the scrupulous cleaning of her feet and her New Hen House and the daily wrapping of her feet. The Vet warned of this and that it could […]
