I turned back and took a photo of Rose Cottage. The wire that you see in the foreground is an electric wire.. its so the horses dont come inside my inner garden.
This morning Hardy, Jeffrey's son decided to come along and little Isaa was behind me.
This is the border of my 5 hectares. I am not sure what this large tree is.. I know its a family of the elm or oak. Possibly poplar tree.. they are all around the secret garden and seed themselves. Their green and silver leaves swaying this morning with the early breeze.
Looking back at the cottages. My pump house on the left
Flowers in my secret garden. !!
Grape vine. I came away realising, that its time for a clear up within the "Secret Garden".. I am not sure wheather i will get grapes or not this year.. they give a few white grapes each year. I leave some for the birds.
Whew! are we resting a little while mummy!
The pond is not looking too great and possibly needs a clean out.
The fir trees
This palm tree is so so large.. but it grows close to the ground.
Top of the palm tree
Bottom of the palm tree. You can see where the fence is stunting its growth. Time for action. This fence is more than 40 years old.
I thought the old Yuca had died off, but here it is with a growth growing out of the side of the stem trunk.
i love this wild flower.. its not a dandilion. !
Wild Iris.. there are a few other clusters, but they have died off now.
I was so surprised to see the wild rose creeper full of the most enormous rose heads.. trying to pop their head through the fence.
Jeffrey sniffing for a catch amongst the wild ivy.
Wild river mint mingled amongst the the barley
This rose creeper has left me stunned. Here I am , feeding my roses and trying to keep the bugs at bay. This one is as healthy as anything. wild and happy ..its scent knocks you over. Its so peaceful here. The birds are twittering away singing their "ode to joy"
