A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block. I share with you my patchwork & quilting, knitting, paper crafts, cooking and life in general.

M.I.A. 'Cause Life is O.T.T. - A.T.M.

I have been missing in action because life is over the top at the moment.

Here is a tiniest look-see into a fraction of what I've been up to...

African Violet

I've been propagating,

Flap Jacks



planting some more,

Senecio mandraliscae - Kleinia (?)

and even more.

Zebra Cactus

I also painted a bit.


And did a little bit of pasting.

I've fallen for how these tins have turned out.  The graphic above and below is from The Graphics Fairy.

I used a little bit of outdoor Mod Podge to adhere the graphic (printed in reverse on paper) to the painted tin.   When dry I rubbed off the back of the paper with a damp sponge to reveal the graphic which was then given a final coat of Mod Podge to seal. 

Jelly Bean Plant


The best thing about all this...is that I've managed to sell all the plants (and more) on a community on-line garage sale.

Perennial Basil 


  1. what fun! I would love a jelly bean plant- what a great name!

    1. And just like jelly beans...they come in different colours!
