Thought I would take a few photos of the garden this morning after a lovely 15mm of rain fell overnight. It has been such a long time since I last used my camera, I'm way out of practice.
I love this purple Hardenbergia
Purple is one of my favourite colours in the garden
The white Hardenbergia is very pretty too
Purple or white, the bees love both!
A lovely lemon coloured grevillia which I'm unsure of the name
Chorizema Cordatum or Heart Leaf Flame Pea.
A beautiful Australian native plant which is
currently sitting in a pot in my shade house
waiting to be planted out.
Cheerful Daffodils and Bellis
I love how delicate the Jonquils look against the Crepe Myrtle bark
More purple! This time a wallflower
More Bellis, I first saw these at Floriade in Canberra
a few years ago, and have been growing them ever since.
The vegetable garden is doing really well at the moment.
The Kale is dark green and very healthy looking.
The broccoli has gone to seed already, but still picking
a few side shoots most days.
The healthiest looking cabbage I've managed to
grow for a number of years.
Self sown carrots and beetroot
Hoping this beauty survives, my parents have an enormous Elk horn
in their shade house and last week it came crashing to the ground.
Luckily it wasn't damaged, so it was a perfect time to split it up into
smaller plants and my sister and I were very lucky to receive a couple
each for our gardens. Ive put this one attached to a gum tree in the
chook yard and the other one on a board hanging in the shade house.
Touch wood I don't jinx myself by saying how healthy the vegetable garden looks! Most years I have a terrible problem with grey aphids at this time, but so far none at all. Fingers crossed it stays that way. After about ten days of beautiful almost spring like weather we are back to freezing cold and rainy days, but I don't mind, I seem to be one of the strange few that enjoy winter.
