Spring in my wild garden

My Nashi Pear tree in bloom, pretty little white blossoms & I believe some are starting to swell into fruit.

Garden looks quite wild from this angle. Yellow daisies, red geraniums & the sweetest smelling pink David Austin roses.

Banana trees giving us our second bunch of bananas. Still learning when best to harvest these.

Excited to grow our own bananas as they are still over $10.00 per kilo in the shops here.

Inside my netted veggie patch, netted from our chickens, possums & native brush turkeys.

Loads of silverbeet, beetroots, lettuce, rocket,water cress, brussel sprouts, leeks, sorrel, rhubarb, tomatoes, eggplant, capsicum & radishes all growing well.

This is Cluck Cluck one of our four chickens looking longingly into our veggie patch thinking of the feast & havoc she could reek in there.

Not a lot happening with Sean-the-Prawn at present as I'm working flat chat on the costumes for my son's school Musical of Uncle Crumbles' Mad Machine. Opening night is next Wednesday, so in a couple of weeks I'll be back at the machine sewing up many new creations for sean-the-prawn summer, & I can't wait.
