My work in progress

Well today after lots of overnight rain it finally cleared long enough for me to pop outside and replant another lot of lettuce plants and some more impatiens. I have added some photos of my garden below which gives you an idea of the sort of landscape I am working on. It is still a work in progress as we only moved in to our new home just over one and a half years ago and are adding our touches. My husband and I got married here at home February 11th 2012 so our first wedding anniversary is nearly here and as we both love motorbike riding (me being the pillion passenger). My husbands motorcycle blog is here  we are off on a trip of the South Island for two weeks to celebrate our happiness together along with a very dear friend from the UK. All very exciting.

Tinks7 Garden

I am just setting up my blog and finding my way around. I love gardens of all different kinds and find it very peaceful and relaxing to spend my time nurturing my flower and vege garden. Here in New Zealand we have some of the most beautiful parts of nature and as time goes on I hope to share some of these with you.
Summer here this year has hotter temperatures than normal so gardening during the middle of the day is at times too hot so the early evening is when I plant out my new flowering beauties and keep them well watered for the next hot day.
Today I planted lots of colour producing plants in my pots which sit on the sundeck and they are a picture of beauty after about two or three weeks.
I dug some new potatoes today which are just delicious and the runner beans are just so full of flowers this year is going to be a bumper crop. Mmmm nothing nicer than your own veges straight out of the garden.
Its just started raining so that will be just dandy for my friends in the garden who I am sure will receive every drop gratefully.
