Long Weekend – Part 4 Botanical Gardens The End

On Sunday morning we woke to hot, hot air, the temperature that day was 29, that is hot for Tassie and the hottest we have experience since it became spring.

We slowly got organised and headed to the Royal Botanical Gardens for a look. I think I visited the gardens as a child but I don’t remember.

On the way back to the cottage we stopped by the bridge.

Monday morning we visited family and then headed back home to our real life. Can’t wait for our next mini break.

From little things, big things grow – hopefully

My daughter was given a packed of seeds in Sunday School the other week.

Cottage Garden Mix

Her Nan kindly gave us these little pots and some seedling mixture to plant them in.

Ready to plant

I filled the containers and my girl watered the dirt

I am very successful at killing plants, not keeping them alive, so hopefully for her sake, these ones survive!!
