Weekend Away

 We went off for a few days up the coast to Lakes Entrance. Came home via Wilsons Prom and found these amazing boulders on Squeaky Beach.
 90 mile Beach on Bass Strait. The wind was so cold and blustery, was surprised there was any sand left on the beach.
 This little fellow was nibbling on the side of the road at Tidal River. Also saw the biggest goanna run across the road.
 Friday, we drove to Eden over the NSW border for the day. Stood on the cliffs watching a whale heading up the coast towards Sydney.

Spring

 Yesterday was spent getting the vegie beds ready for planting. Melbourne Cup Day is the designated day for the planting of tomatoes. The onions haven't bulbed as well as last year. Broccoli and spinach doing well, but how much can you eat each night without turning green.
 This year the snow peas have excelled. Can't give enough of them away. A few years ago we visited the ABC Garden at Hobart Botanical Gardens. They were growing Ginger Mint. Found some at my nursery and it has appeared in the pot again. I thought we had lost it.
 My roses are doing beautifully. Yellow seem to be the first to bud and open. The olive tree is bursting with olive buds. Last year it was covered with olives,  John mentioned we must pick them the next day. We woke up the next morning and the tree was stripped bare. We don't have possums and as the area under the tree was clean, we wondered if the "animal was a 2 legged species".

 Last week I picked 3 bunches of different variety roses and the smell as you entered the house was overwhelming.

Blogs and Comments

I caught up with Kate over the weekend and she told me she could not comment on my blog. I am having the same trouble commenting on others that I follow......please don't think that I don't want to comment on all your wonderful postings on what you are doing. But for the life of me, something won't let me.
I would also love to add other blogs to my list and can't do that either. Why is something changed when it isn't broken, I had no trouble with the old format!!!
The joys of the computer world.....
