"Bellis" and Brisbane

If there was a bad blogger award I think I would win that!!!!

You know when life gets so busy in the garden there is not time for not much else, except going to Brisbane to see the open garden of ABC Gardening presenter Jerry Coleby Williams, Bellis.

It was a wonderful example of a sustainable inner city garden.

 I realized that I should put a lot more in my vege beds as I waste a lot of room.

There were so many people that there were areas of the Garden I didn't get to as it was gridlock
on the narrow paths

He had Guinea pigs to keep William and Harry busy and native bees, which is on my list
of things to get.

There was this wild spinach growing all through the garden that looks like a weed 
I am always pulling out, I will have to look into it and check.

Then it was of to South bank for a look around.

Some lunch

 I had Chili mussells yummo...O and a glass or 2 of wine Hey by this time with these 3 I needed it.

After lunch we looked through Queen Street Mall, and on the way home stopped at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre, it was a hit with the boys, I didn't get any thing but Bruce found a few bits he wanted.

Spring doesn't feel far away now what with open gardens and day trips with great weather.
I have got a lot done this winter though and will share later on.

Have a great day All.


  1. Sounds like a great day out Mandy and yes spring is definitely in the air. Sorry, but you can't get the bad blogger award because I have already claimed it lol. cheers Wendy

  2. Mandy, that would have been fun. Goodness the boys have grown. I would love to to see that garden one day. I think that spinach is the one we have too and Annette McFarlane said at Gardenfest that she cooks it.
