Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

July 25th 2007

I have this pot of petunias sitting on top of one of the fence posts surrounding one of the gardens.

One of my favorite Hostas.

If you look carefully at the globe flower in the back, you can just make out a bee busily gathering pollen.

A pretty little patch of flowers.

I had to put the wagon behind the fence as a couple of the wild rabbits were taking an interest in the flowers.

My spinach is doing extremely well in this styrene container. I pick enough spinach every couple of days to make a small salad for myself.
You can see the drip watering system I have installed to water the containers on the deck.

There are two tomato plants in this pot and they are now taller than the wire cage, I thought was going to be too tall when I bought it. I am now glad i did get the largest wire cage to support the tomatoes.

I am happy to see the Elephant Ears have come back this year. They were left in the garden over the winter, and being close to the house probably gave them a little protection from the elements.
