Our kitchen garden. We pick shallots and silverbeet regularly and have just picked our first celery. Ma is about to start planting the other vege bed.
Lemons from our neighbour's tree. Alannah is squeezing lemons for hot lemon tea to help me ward off a sore throat, but by today I'd succumbed to her virus.
Darren is building a sandstone garden bed for a trellis for peas or berries. The next step is to line it, fill it, and replace the soil around it. He's pretty handy, isn't he?

|At the end of May I bought a pack of 40 King Alfred Daffodils from Hargraves Nursery out at Dural. I planted them the next day, so it has taken nine weeks to get to this point. They are in three sections of the backgarden.|
|They came in the same order as the silverbeet and shallots, which we have been eating for close to a month. They sure are beautiful, though! |
Wordsworth contended that the collective noun for daffies is 'host' ... remember? May these dancing daffies flash upon your inward eye, should you be granted the bliss of solitude!
