Green Green Everywhere

"It isn't easy being green" sung Kermit the frog----------------- For the last 10 years our back yard at the beginning of Autumn was dry brown dirt where the grass should have been and the shrubs were dying one by one and the whole area was an eyesore. But look at it now----the grass is green (I won't call it a lawn because it isn't)--the trees and shrubs are green and growing every day and we have been able to replace three of the shrubs that had died previously. It is a pleasure to walk out the back door and see all this lovely green space..

You can see in the middle of the photo a green bird bath under a shrub--well at the beginning of Summer that bird bath was out in the open and now it is totally hidden by the foliage of the shrub.

If you enlarge the picture you will see it better.

The dirt area will have mulch on it very soon.

It is wonderful to drive around Canberra and see so much greenery.

Oh and Robin did you notice that the two trashpacks have gone--we had to get someone else to take them.

Isn' that a wonderful colour GREEN - It is my favorite. No wonder. It is spring here and light green is coming out - a real joy.

Here in the UK we often moan about the amount of rain we have and want more sunshine, but you can have too much and we should be grateful for our more temperate climate. Is that why we are known as 'Whinging Poms' or do we moan about everything?!!

It's good to be green!! Everything is green here, too. We also have a small dirt area in our back yard that needs some mulch and some attention.
