Harvesting

I love watching moments like this - father and son in the garden, harvesting potatoes, sharing knowledge, showing quiet enthusiasm.


If you look closely, you can see the potatoes on the sleeper. We had them with our roast and it they were lovely. I don't think there is anything quite as nice as a home grown product.
This is one of my favourite views in the garden. Where I am standing is where the washing line is so when I am hanging out washing, this is what I see. The green shadecloth is covering the sandpit and I have to admit, it looks much nicer without the shadecloth on but I couldn't be bothered hauling it off just for the photo. But, as you can imagine, it's a lovely spot to sit and watch the kids playing, under the shade of two big old almond trees.

This was David's last father's day present from Louis. We are in the habit of getting him a new garden ornament each birthday/christmas/or occasion. He has quite an eclectic mix of garden art, dotted around the place - it's quite fun trying to spot things in the garden.

Spring has sprung here in Adelaide and we are enjoying the most beautiful spring weather - and I'm delighting in how fresh everything looks - but I already miss the rain!
