My Mom’s Garden – Idyllic

As a break from all the food, I’m all eaten out…(Don’t worry 3-4 meals yet to come)..I’ll feature my mom’s garden.

My mom loves her garden, I like it too..

It’s nothing like our old garden, which was 120ft long and contained all kinds of stuff, loads of flowers plus 2 apple trees, 2 plum trees, goosberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, rhubarb, runner beans, broadbeans, lettuce, spinach, radish and all kinds of herbs and spices, it was awesome!

This one is small but well filled.

There are quite a lot of different varieties for such a small garden.

Such as Geraniums…


Ballerina Roses..




Brown Skipper Butterflies..

And Bumble Bees on the Globe Thistle..

Bear in mind it’s coming to the end of summer so these plants and flowers aren’t at their finest, and some heavy rain lately has battered them a bit.

But well there’s my mom’s garden!

And here’s my mom in her garden, cheers!

I’ll be flying back now…just packing my things, feel kind of sad to be leaving my mom again (and her food..), oh well I have missed Malaysia, but I’ll be flying straight to Phillipines when I get back, returning on Sunday.

I doubt I’ll blog from Amsterdam this time as I’ll only be there a couple of hours, will post again when I get home for a couple of hours, I’ve allready written another 3 posts, just marked them draft.

Coming soon, Baked potatoe, Worcester Porcelain, Fruit Meringue and Pork Chops!

The rest will have to come when I get home from Manila (or when I’m there if the hotel is decent), including God’s Pork Pie, Bangers & Mash (followed by home made apple pie) and a nice walk in the country.
