Changing of the seasons.

Yesterday I went to our local farmers markets and stocked up on seedlings. My vegetable garden has been bare for weeks, with the last of my summer crops having finished mid January. After watching how different vegetables grew in my garden last winter, I feel that I have a better understanding of what to place where this time round.
I bought:
Red cabbage
Perennial capsicums
Two types of chilli plant
Cos lettuce
Garlic chives

I also planted carrots, beetroot and beans from seed.

Here is a before shot...

 And after...

In other news I have taken up horse riding. It is something I have always wanted to try but could never afford when living in Sydney. This is one of my new self care activities. I love animals and being in the outdoors, plus the challenge of learning to communicate with such an animal is such a skill to learn! I have also been having great fun practicing some training drills with my neighbours horse, under her guidance of course :-)

And finally, this little guy has moved in with us. His name is Henry and he is cute as a button. He even came to work with me last week much to the amusement of my colleagues... who spent all day cuddling and fussing over him.
