From about the 10th of the month, I start getting excited when I visit my local newsagent. Is it there..? No. Next time I go shopping, is it there..? No. Yesterday, I went in and my heart skipped a beat, it was there!! The next edition of the UK edition of Country Living.
Over here in Oz, we are a month behind on the UK issue but I don’t mind that I am reading all about September. It is one of my little slices of home!
I love sitting down on my rocking chair to read my new glossy covered magazine, reading about life in the English countryside.
I am trying to make my little part of Queensland as English Cottage garden as I can! It’s a hard task when our summers are hot and we have to look after what little water we have.
My “Jane McGrath” climbing rose is beautiful, it has a delicate pink flower and it loves the position it’s in, in my garden. It is drought-tolerent now it is established and it rambles over some stakes in a corner of my garden with red Geraniums joining it with real country style.
The Salvias I bought a few weeks ago are settling into my garden very well.
Tomatoes are good at sprouting wherever they fancy in my garden!
I love vegetables growing along side flowers. The bright red spots next to large pink circles of geraniums.
There are also yellow tomatoes growing as well. My Little Lady loves tomatoes, she eats them like most children would eat sweets!
I will go and soak up some English style with my magazine until next time.
