Gifts from Mother Nature

My first view when waking up in the morning – a plot all covered with blooming Calendula flowers - always makes me smile . Colour, texture, smell. You can breath deeper by just watching this beauty.
To fill one bag with 10g of dried flowers you need 60 fresh ones.  There is no harm done by cutting fresh ones - It encourages them to blossom more. Quoting Cleve Backster "I feel  I have a truly wonderful ally – Mother Nature"

Almost Spring

Despite the terrible weather - rain, wind and fog, spring is almost here.
There are plenty of happy butterflies in the Ngataringa Community Garden. They enjoy a variety of flowers; yellow Marigolds, blue Borages, violet Rosemarie’s  NOG is very rich with all these goodies that are butterflies favourites. Soon our bees will join the team and everything will be ready to welcome children from our local schools and kindies to visit us againJ
