It has rained for over a week now. Good steady rain that soaks right down to the roots. Even our outback farmers have had rain, the first for them in over 2 years. With the rain comes the heat and humidity.
Look at my garden it is like a jungle and all the tropical flowers are flaunting their beauty.
The fish ponds are covered in lilies and the water hyacinth makes its short but beautiful burst of colour.
Remember I grew some sunflowers from seed? Well they are now settled in to their bed in full sun and they are racing away.
The veggies are scattered around in different areas of the garden and we have eaten lettuce since the beginning of December. I am into the second crop and also rocket, spinach, silver beet and lots of herbs.
Remember the cradle we built? Well I have put a shade cloth over it as well as the bird netting, the sun has been fierce, 30+ degrees by mid morning. But see how they are lapping up the attention.
The climbing beans at the back are racing up the frame and will soon be ready for Jack to climb them in search of that giant!!!!!
Oh dear something else is sharing the kale with us. Baby grass hoppers have made an appearance, so it will be a race to see who gets the most, them or us…
Two more sleeps left in 2014 then it is a new year and time to start thinking of new dreams, decisions and destinations.
Best wishes to all my blogging friends, it has been lovely getting to know you through your comments and visiting you in your part of the blogosphere during 2014. I’m looking forward to following your adventures and sharing Word Press journeys with you all.
lovely to see all your plants and especially the water hyacinth as a neighbour has just given me one to go with my blue water lily. Beautiful photos
