Wandering Photo's

As it's another rainy day my choices of what to do are limited - it's either housework or blogging, and I know which one would win any day!

I've been out with the camera taking pot shots at anything that caught my eye and I thought I'd let you see a small insight into my daily surroundings and how they're changing with the seasons. Then I best get on and clean this house!

The locals will be out later collecting snails as they're considered somewhat of a delicacy here - mine will be staying put in the garden!

Some of the many trees we have are in blossom again, while others have finished already - parts of the garden are spotted with fallen blossom that looks like confetti.

This is our shortcut from the neighbours house - across the paddock, which will hopefully be plowed and have lucerne planted on in the autumn, through the orchard and into our garden.
There's a small cluster of these trees on one part of our land and I've no idea what they are! They look a bit prehistoric, don't produce fruit and are the last to be getting their leaves. The branches are all odd shaped. Can you tell me what it is?


  1. Hi
    I stumbled on your blog through a link on the Bing homepage yesterday (9th December 2012). I think the tree you have pictured may be Elm. Not sure though as picture is not clear or close up.

    Great Blog. More pictures of the restoration would enhance it. As would a a more detailed explanation on the home page about who you are and what you are about.
    I am surprised that you do not have more followers commenting.
    Best wishes.

    1. Hi and thanks for the comment.

      You are correct, we've since found out that our mystery trees are corked or winged elm.

      Hopefully in the spring I'll get around to taking more photo's. We have snow right now so most things are covered up.

      I'll have a think about updating the about me section soon.

      Thanks again and I hope you come back to visit soon.
