Family, garden, arty and greenness links

Beware my friends, some of the following links may have you downloading and/or fascinated for hours:

What a great list for new mothers! Just the things to offer when someone you know has a new baby.

The short web/tv shows made by Daryl Hannah about all sorts of interesting world-wide green goings on are at her site: DH LoveLife. Can’t stop watching these engaging episodes. The next for me to watch is the second gorilla one.

America’s First Lady Mrs. Obama is getting a “kitchen garden” going at the White House. The link is to an article with more details and some of the plants listed. What a lovely simple gesture that could be very powerful.

The illustrated blog ‘Tiny Art Director” was recommended by a lovely woman blogger who says she laughs so much at it that milk comes out of her nose. Tiny Art Director is pictures by an illustrator with the comments his young daughter makes.

In my garden I am newly finding benefits and odours of “Dynamic Lifter” (chook manure) and “Seasol” (Seaweed/soluble?) after a horticultural-trained visitor helped me with some rose pruning and information. The roses are now blooming crazily, and there are certain new smells apparent outside the laundry door where the herbs are.

I have fine tuned my irrigation system a little bit, too. I have new octi-fountain-drippers, and have blocked off some now-misplaced ones (which were wasting water). Also inherited a 1500l water tank which needs some good thinking as to placement and plumbing. Planted a cherry/strawberry guava tree (between the pair of peaches and the left orange). I love planting trees.

Thanks for reading, take care of you,
