Green thumb Sunday





Well.... for this weeks GTS our Irises that are growing in the pond have decided to put on a show. They certainly add that extra touch of colour to the garden at the moment.
Our little Eastern sedgefrog population have taken over the large water bowl ( photo 3rd down rh. side) they are making plenty of noise, but no babies yet. A really good downpour would definately do the trick. It's probably worth a click for a larger view on the Iris shots.
Enjoy your week and Happy gardening!

Your garden is alive in Australia and here in Canada ours are preparing for their deep winter sleep! I know where I"ll be coming to visit when the north wind does blow! Thank you for visiting Nature-trail!

I love Iris'es, so I can see how this one is coloring your nice looking pond.

It must be wonderful to relax in your garden :-)

Hi Roy
The iris is great isn't it. I adore them but get confused - I plant blue ones and they seem to turn white in the second season!

Sigrun said...

Oh, yo have so nice photos, I like them to see them in November. I can not wait for spring!
