Gardening on a small block in south western Sydney with two kids, a couple of cats and a big moustache.

This is my eldest, Imogen. Took a quick photo of her this morning as we headed out to the car to go to preschool. She likes to make sure there is enough water for the birds each day. The birdbath is just outside her bedroom window so she can watch birds drink and bathe without frightening them away.
She gets very cranky if I so much as pick up a pair of secateurs without inviting her to come and help. She also combs the lawn each day looking for and reporting on any bindii. And God forbid that I should use a watering can without also filling hers and letting her water the pot garden.
I don't think gardening would be anywhere near as much fun without her.
The first rays of dawn in the back corner. My cats Frootllop and Spotty Monsta sit waiting for it to reach the ground for their morning sunbathe.
