V8 Supercars Week-end.... Racing Fun

Welcome to my space, my garden, my home!
When I visit all my favourite Blogs I love to see what
 everyone has been up to and what they are creating or
 working on. Some Blogs are so much fun to catch up and see what's been happening since my last visit. The past few
weeks have been very busy dry season days at work for me
so getting home and back to where I feel at ease and myself is
very important. I am loving the beaut cooler weather and am enjoying how great all the new flowering plants that Hubby has planted lately are progressing.
He has been busy making our patio BBQ area bigger with paving and removing some of the overgrown garden to give us so much more space. The addition of a new sail to shade the table and the spa will make everything so much more inviting and shady. When we moved in the garden was overgrown with way too many palms and mostly green. Now it is springing to life with some additional colour with some new plants that will survive the hot tropical sun. Missy the dog is a keen onlooker of all the gardening projects and keeps us company. She likes to have some attention when I am trying to take some photos of the progress and it is great to see her so happy with plenty of room to run now. So as you can see she
has a smile from ear to ear these days with so many lizards to chase!
Last Week-end was the 15th year for the V8 Supercars at Hidden Valley in Darwin. Hubby enjoyed two days of racing action and caught some of it on film for me to share with you. Enjoy!
Hope your Week-end was fun filled.

Lazy Days in the Garden

Welcome to Darwin!

Make a Wish List of your own

Hi All,
Today I have to share with you some of the great
photos that I took just yesterday at the beautiful
George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens.
I am sure that this lush green oasis in the Darwin City
holds something special for all of us visitors and locals
alike. If you venture to Darwin it is well worth the
time spent just wondering in its perfect vastness.
I love that it is open for everyone to share and is free.
Hubby and I spent a special morning yesterday
at the Tropical Garden Spectacular.
We keen little gardeners and garden planners like
myself can bask in the greatness of clever Nursery and
Garden Specialists who know their stuff and do it
so well. I have to say a big thank you to them for
inspiring ideas and sharing tips to us ordinary folk.
Helping us to beautify our little backyards and turn
them into our very own tropical paradise!
I myself prefer to gaze out at all the work and take
the time to Laze, Relax and Enjoy!
Especially after a big week at work and
after all this is what it is meant for!
Greetings to you all and hope your
Weekend was as special as ours.
PS.. Have some new plants on the wish list!
PSS.. Thank-you dearest green thumbed Hubby
for making dreams come true!
