Around and About the Garden - No 4 Simply Neutrals Tuesday

Today is No. 4 of Simply Neutrals Tuesday
and apart from showing a couple
of pieces of my artwork
I thought I would share what I can see around me
as I stroll around the garden. 

My DH created this amazing garden room in our large garden

so we could accommodate overnight guests and as a
peaceful place to ponder life and the garden
and the amazing view that it provides.


 We call it the "garden room" and it has been almost
entirely constructed from timber and iron
 that is more than 100 years old.

I graced this window with an old cotton tablecloth

 with a very pretty central  
flower pattern.
We have about 7 acres of natural bushland around our
house and garden 
and, as well as our most treasured domesticated goats

 living in harmony we occasionally spot the odd Wallaby outside
the fenced garden area too!

as well as the many native lizards that skitter 
in and out of the garden plants running along rocks and sleepers.


The bird life here is extraordinary such as these beautiful
Shrike Thrushes which are currently nesting outside
our kitchen window!

How could anyone not feel at peace spending time
pondering in a landscape such as this.
We are blessed! 
and we are also blessed to have Wen over at


hosting this event again this week where you can share
all of your "neutral" loves in anyway, shape or form that you desire.

Oh and just a couple of small art pieces in neutral shades
wouldn't go astray either:

(from my studio!)

You will really love what you see there! Wen this week
is sharing some amazing architecture for us!

Thanks for popping in to see this and for leaving 
your kind comments which are always
so appreciated!

  6. Hello Suzy. What a beautiful corner of the world you live in, and how I love your little garden house. What a privilege it must be for guests to stay there.. And I love your little art pieces (as usual!). Hugs, Sue

  7. wow Susi- I sure would feel in heaven in your garden cottage-I could live there-so long as I had heat- and the sweet animals:) Gorgeous fabric art too!

  8. Your garden is a true magical space. No wonder you create magical art as well. Love Love Love

  9. What a beautiful space your husband created for you to simply be in the garden. Always charming to view your world. xox

  10. O' Suzy I'll be right over ........................this is a a truly lovely post. I am a nature lover and an animal lover so it's a little bit of heaven for me. The domesticated goats are something I'd love to hug. They look somewhat like our sheep. Loving that garden room. Would be so fun to decorate and you have awesome lace peeping by those windows. Little Treasured art work too...so exquisite. Thanks for making my PM break a thrill.

  11. Your garden room is gorgeous and would love to see the inside, as well as more of your garden!

  12. Hello Dear Suzy
    I promess you, that if I could have money , health and time to make one travel in Australia, I would come to see you your beautiful garden home, and your goats! I would like to see wallabies and koalas too! LOL
    Hugs and kisses

  13. I think I said this before, my dear Suzy but your garden is simply magical. Your art pieces are stunning as always. Have a lovely day.
    Sending hugs and love,

  14. Oh my goodness, the little garden house is adorable. I love the lace curtain...so dreamy. Oh and the gorgeous faces of those goats. Look at those beautiful curls :) I wonder if they know they grace your artworks :)

  15. I don't think there's anybody that wouldn't want to be an overnight guest at your house if they could stay in that lovely little house. Your DH did a great job!

  16. Hi Suzy, I bet your place is looking gorgeous for Spring. I have my first rose blooming - Climbing Cinderella. I can see buds everywhere and I've been madly mulching to keep the weeds down. Your brown thrush is so sweet and the goat belongs there in your garden as a statue! I love your lace curtain, too. And as usual, your artworks are so delicious :)

  17. Sigh... a beautiful post dear Suzy. So much beauty is around you and created by your hands. The peacefulness of the first collage is really speaking to me. Sending you big hugs xxx

  18. I love your garden room - what an amazing place! To think all the materials used are 100 plus years old - that's so amazing. It is delightful - a charming little spot for guests, or a place to curl up and watch the world go by, you say - I'd never leave!


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
