Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Grow

Growing things

Sometimes I can grow potted plants and sometimes I can’t. I have had no luck with Cyclamens since moving here because our kitchen/living area is just too hot. But in Geeveston I managed to keep one going for over two years once.

Flowers in my kitchen

I have grown apples but not grapes, although when I was a child, we had grapevines in our garden.

Apples and grapes.

We have thought about growing vegetables ourselves but at the moment it is impractical because the wildlife keep eating them.

My fridge is unusually full of fresh vegetables this week.

Teddy, before and after a trip to the groomer. This is the longest his coat ever grew. Naomi had trouble finding a groomer when we moved here. There is one in Wynyard but she was not very nice, overcharged and was rude to Naomi and upset Teddy. Now she takes him to a very nice lady in Burnie.



I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
