something for Daisy

a few more things taken to Villa Maria to make the house our home..little by little bit by bit ~ today we had an inspection of Inglewood so we loaded up the trusty ute with garden bits and went to work on Villa Maria for a few hours while some people wandered around Inglewood.

I took my potted bay tree down and put it in a corner of the garden. funny how things just fit & look like they belong...

and I took something for Daisy ~ my GreenMan.. I bought him the day after Daisy died and he has been watching the garden at Inglewood ever since [along with the blackbird].. but now it is time to move on to Villa Maria and he is guarding over my garden there now.. [along with the black bird]
we met a neighbour while we were there & had a chat.. she told us that down in the little creek there are endangered frogs.. that is good. that they are there means the water quality must be fine & that the land care group know about them means they are safe.. I cannot wait to move so that I can hear them of a night ... I did some gardening, planting comfrey under the citrus which will bring nutrients up to the roots & Dutch husband planned the new chook pen... I put my Alice in Wonderland statues along the Citrus Walk and all I need to do now is hang some tea cups in the citrus tree where the Mad Hatter now lives....

Would you mind putting up a picture of the Alice in Wonderland statues in a post later? I'd like to see what they look like. Your bay looks healthy & happy. We spend our summer going to bed to the sound of frogs, we don't really notice it anymore, it's just part of the sound of our world. But other people always comment on how loud they are :-)

I love your Green Man and would love to have one but it looks as if it's probably one of a kind and not mass produced.

I love everything about your gardens, both of them and would so dearly love to see them..

Wonderfully exciting Robyn. Did you see the Alice in Wonderland movie? Wasn't Johhny Depp superb as the Mad Hatter? I love your Green Man.He is in good company with frogs and blackbirds, and all things green and growing. Wishing you happy days ahead.

You know, I hadn't really checked here because I thought you weren't going to post until you moved in. Those potted plants do look like they belong. You are going to have a grand house with many years of comfort and joy.

It sounds so magical Robyn, especially the teacups. The Green man is wonderful. I have one too, a bit different.
Have a great day !!!

I love reading your progress here at Villa Maria.
Every time I stop by it is more "you."
What a delight to have Alice in Wonderland statues ~ I am enamoured with Alice as of late...

Your Green Man looks right at home. Between him and Daisy and the blackbird, you have lots of good spirits watching over you.
