i mentioned a few posts ago that i've been on a bit of a design rampage - in addition to the lovely new windsee, i've been pondering paint colours and garden layout/design for our house. we've got this beautiful, loaded camellia tree (bush? it looks like a tree but aren't camellias referred to as bushes?) in front of the house that sadly needs to be moved and probably won't survive so i'm trying to make most of it this year. there are also 4 or 5 other camellias that are just starting to bloom now that i've been feeding and treating them - it's ridiculously exciting to me to see what the blooms look like on each tree as they appear. i really need to sit down and figure out what i want from the garden though; i have so many ideas and just need to organize them... a veggie patch, a huge herb garden, more camellias, rosebushes for the front, a couple of apple trees, and a few grevilleas to attract some cute green parrots are all in the cards so far... oh, and the hydrangeas, the hellebores, the blueberry bushes and raspberry canes. yep, i really need to get that sorted.
and this little fella is on his way to canada to live with sarah as we speak:
i couldn't bear to part with the little pinky one after we'd spent so much time together - hope you don't mind, buddy!
