I said “no more veggie garden”…
The tiny veggie/herb garden is looking quite sad and empty, (do you remember when we built it?) It is very small compared to the veggie patch on the farm. So I couldn’t resist buying some lettuce, rocket and Greek basil from Bunnings.
This is the “Bali” corner and also my small nursery area. Lurking under the tarpaulin is a mulcher which will soon be getting a lot of work. It has been a good season for rain and everything has doubled in size.
Here they are, my new babies. I’ve just transplanted them from the cells they came in and will coddle them in here till this present very hot spell (30+ temperatures) passes.
Did you notice the pink behind the shade cloth?
It is the Crepe Myrtle in full flower.
A sure sign of summer in the tropics is the Frangipani now coming into flower.
Under the Frangipani is an unusual Bromeliad.
It flowers for months.
In the week I have been home the temperatures have soared into 30+ and with a hot wind as well the garden can dry out quickly.
So the hose is in use every night. Notice the handy bench to sit and have a rest on?
The ponds are looking good.
Over on the door the masks that Jack made are keeping an eye on things.
Here is a gallery of some other things flowering at the moment.
Look at the lemons, this tree is only a year old.
So life goes on in the garden. Hope you enjoyed the look around.
I’ll join Jo’s Monday walk today, come over to visit her. Actually it is more a saunter, and if it gets too hot you can sit and rest on one of the benches.
