13 days of donuts

Donuts is what we call a zero. Like the Centre of a donut. A big 0

We are all so happy as it means we might get to have a normal Christmas with family and friends 
As long as we continue as we have been 

We are all complaining about the masks 
But if it means I can have my family with me Christmas I’ll happily wear it
For as long as we need. 

This morning  I woke early and hit the ground running. I had a parcel to pick up 
In town and so I decided I was going to keep driving once I’d picked it up and head into bunnings. 
I had plans!

I bought some sugar cane mulch and hydrangeas 
Some pretty foliage plants for shaded areas and headed home to start 

Along the fence it’s really hard to mow or whipper snip so I asked hubby to help me 
Add some compost and then mulch and I planted the hydrangeas inbetween 
The Camillas 

Hopefully they will fill out and stop the weeds growing making it easier to keep the area neat 
I’m facing north as I take the picture so it’s shaded by the fence for most of the 
Day. To the left is the west. So it will get a little bit of sun but there are big trees that will dapple 
The light 

And this bit pot needs some love 
So I added compost and filled it with the plants 
Hopefully they will grow big and lush and look very pretty 
Under my front porch 

Resting now 
I watered everything and all the existing pots 
And I’ve finally come inside as it’s the middle of the day and getting to warm to be outside in the sun

Hope your all doing well with whatever stage of lockdown your in 
Stay safe and well 
See ya xx


  1. That big pot looks like half a wooden wine barrel. We have a couple a of those. hope the hydrangeas do well. I love those.
    I'm getting used to masks now and we have a big variety so lots of choice if we ever go out

    1. We still have to wear masks so I have a packet in the car
      I still walk out of the car and think what have I forgotten and have to go back for the mask lol
      Stay safe

  2. Here, at 44-degrees north latitude, it's chilly and wet with winds that are expected to hit 50 mph, and the Covid forecast is even more cheerless (with a possible 400,000 deaths by Christmas--we're now at 243,000).

    I don't know if I've ever mentioned how much I enjoy your warm and sunny photos each year when the weather here is anything but warm and sunny. You work hard in your yard, and I love reflecting upon how much it means to you and how much you celebrate its beauty. Here's hoping that your Christmas will be everything you want it to be.

    P.S. I too love hydrangeas. My mother used to bury old nails nearby (my father was a carpenter) in the belief that it would make the flowers more colorful. I have no idea if this worked, but have you heard of doing it?

    1. Thank you for your lovely words. I don’t know if it works but I’ll try it. It can’t hurt
      I feel for you guys so many people sick and so many deaths
      Take care
