One Million Stars

Last year I participated in folding these ribbons to make stars for the One Million Stars project. It has finally gone up at this LINK

Here is the VIDEO of it on facebook:

I will have to go and see it for myself and take pictures.

You will find more pictures and inspiring stories on the main ONE MILLION STARS PROJECT

New Garden

I can't believe its over a month since I posted, that is how busy life is on the island. I now have gardening to do that I have never done in my life. Its so rewarding to see these small plants or seeds growing before your eyes. Abit like watching and waiting for the baby to arrive.

 So the only edible thing the previous owners planted was this lime tree which produces some awesome juicy fruit. I just love smelling the lime. Then beside it is a rosemary bush they planted as well. This will be my herb garden and hubby and I have planted mint, chives, cabbage, sage, pineapple sage, oregano, majoram
 My poor dragon fruit tree is leaning on this tree until we can build a proper pole for it
 More herbs and trees ready to go in the ground
 My bele tree is taking a long time to recover from the move, its is bare for now, curry leaf tree and blueberry and pawpaw
Aaaaah I love my pumpkin plants, they give me the most joy to watch as they grow so fast. I pollinate them myself (because i cant wait for the bees LOL but I also want to make sure they are pollinated) .  Ive got 5 different types growing so far, also one that will grow to 50kgs-I planted that for fun to see if I could grow a pumpkin so big.
I love gardenias and almost bought some plants until I discovered we have a few bushes growing and didnt realise until they flowered last week lol
My pumpkin patch with sprinkles of snow peas, potatoes and cabbage lol. I think the pumpkins will take over. Hubby did this to my horror, I told him we had to move all the other plants and just have pumpkins growing here...aaah men...never listen!!
