Oh I love the blissful thoughts! Dogs outstretched and gardening into the evening. Blissful indeed!

I adore late day gardening. My partner says he is envious at my delight in pottering, and I must remind myself not to carry on with deadheading after a certain light level. Our child sprinkle sowed a seed mix in her 3sqm area that was meant for the entire garden. Some success and much patience required but a certain random in my fave soft yellow that remains unidentified popped up as a charming surprise.

Our neighbourhood is full of new subdivision dullness. The sad repetition of the most common natives combined with little attempt at individuality does my head in. Makes me hold on to the high compliment gave, saying our garden was the only sanctuary in the block. Which we intended, for ourselves and the insect population.
