This is....the view from my front door....
just the neighbour's fence - its much nicer when their bougainvillea is in bloom...such a pretty pink!
and my little Neo is waiting for you all - come inside!! I'll put the kettle on!

This here is my laundry door - and the view into the garden!

    Congratulations on your published cards. It's so fullfilling to see one's work published.

  5. Another brick walk. ;-) It looks lovely and inviting (tidy too...). I'll raise a cuppa to you, and I'll be anxious to hear about the cookbook. Such an enticing name, and I just got back from Portugal where the piri piri was a tame sister to the piri piri in East Africa. ;-)

  6. Oh Neo I would love to come in for a little visit - I'll bring some cake.
    I love the green door especially.

  7. Your garden looks gorgeous. I love the ball-y hedge!

    Thanks for your comment: Yes, I DO miss Sydney (we're coming back on Wednesday for a week!!!!). I miss lots and lots of things about it. I miss the buzz, I miss the fact you can get food at any hour of day or night, I miss multiculture, I miss asian food, I miss the Portuguese food in Petersham, I miss being able to walking to nearby suburbs, I miss grafiti murals, I miss unusual shops, and good book shops like Pentimento on King St... and I could go on. But, all things said, I knew it would be a process, and there is stuff here that has started creeping into me, and that I'm starting to enjoy. Plus living somewhere so amazingly pretty really does help :)

    p.s. Thanks for the plug in your last post :)

  8. Your garden looks great - and little Neo - what a smile! Love the bright red shoes!

  9. Lovely garden and house. Your little Neo is so cute. My best friend has a son Neo, too! Amazing. I am bookmarking your blog, it looks like a lot of fun and inspiration.

  11. Hey Dees...Neo is short for Neophytos which is my fathers name - so he is named after his grand-dad...its a Greek name!!
    Wow Little Snoring - Neo is quite rare...great to hear there is another little Neo running around! every one thinks we are Matrix fans haha
