I shot this film this morning before work. Just had a chance to edit it. Loving the cottage garden feel of this year’s planting. Enjoy this one minute of peace and beauty.

Life in my garden

Life in my garden

Posted on

I love my little pond. It’s always full of life and the sound of the water calms me. I visit as often as I can, even if I just pass by when I arrive home and have a quick look. There’s always life in my garden.

Passing by yesterday at lunch, I noticed a couple of dragonflies at the pond. I stood still and put my finger up in the hope that one of them would land. I had done that before. This time; however, none would take the bate. My wife arrived soon thereafter and she came over to say hello. Seeing what I was doing, she nonchalantly put up her finger and within seconds a dragonfly landed on her finger tip! I cursed the dragonflies, of course, to my wife’s hearty laughter.

After she had gone inside, I thought I’d give it another go. Fortunately I was second time lucky, as you can see, and I enjoyed their company for a few minutes before heading inside for lunch.

I’m so grateful for my home and lovely little garden. And for being able to share it with family and friends too.

Have wonderful morning.

Resting Man
Palm Tree Killing Beetle

Palm Tree Killing Beetle

Another palm in our garden is dead. Thanks to this beetle. We have to remove the “Khawajah” palm from the garden now and must get someone to come spray the rest of the palms so that they do not spread to the rest of them, or more importantly, don’t spread to the rest of the neighbourhood. Sad.

A Moment in My Garden

A Moment in My Garden

A quick one minute video of my garden this morning. Hope you enjoy this short tour. With the weather changing, the frogs have returned to the pond. No idea where they were hiding all summer long!

Let the sun shine through…

Let the sun shine through…

Fed up of politics… yes I know that today is an important milestone for Bahrain jurisprudence with the impending Appeal Court decision regarding the 21 political leaders and other assorted activists, but even with that, let’s just pose a second and enjoy these flowers… and the calm.

Say hello to the Araucaria cookii

Posted on

Now that the sick palm is out, I decided not to replace it with another one. But I thought I would like to have a big tree there in any case, and as I’ve seen how beautiful the Araucaria looked in my neighbour’s garden, which is easily 15 meters tall, I’d go for that one too. Al-Bader on the Janabiya highway fortunately had a few in stock so I went there and got one. Here it is, happy in its new location so far.
