I mentioned to Norma over at Garden to Wok who does a weekly round-up of what she has harvested from her garden every Monday that I had recently spent the day in the garden tiding things, well more like ripping everything out and replanting selectively. I promised to take a couple of photos to share what the garden looks like now before winter really settles in.
The bed below the dining room window was a mix and match of oddments, it is now dedicated to these lovely succulent roses.
Relaxing in the dappled shade from the fig tree branches
The aloe and succulents outside the front lounge window were getting very crowded and overgrown so much so the stones were all hidden. Majority have been removed with a few of the bigger ones now evenly spaced.
Finally room to breathe
The clivia’s have all been moved to a mostly shady spot where they can thrive and hopefully flower.
Wonder what colour flowers they will produce…
These thing-a-ma-jigs (have no idea what they are called) have been planted as ground cover and will hopefully soon be filling in all the open spots of soil. They also produce the most beautiful yellow flowers on long stems.
Having a chat with the air plant
Our lemon tree which we had to hack a while back is thriving again and is enjoying not being crowded by the roses any more.
Being guarded by two succulents with thing-a-ma-jigs ground cover for company
Clearly not all air plants need to be up in the air – ours slid down its wooden host and has settled nicely on the ground next to our garage.
Nice view up the driveway from the ground
A few odd bowls next to the front door. Think they need a bit more attention than they received.
At least they are colour coded
This poor little birds eye chilli was dug up and transplanted into this pot. Seems he wasn’t very happy about the move. Hope he perks up soon.
CPR may be necessary
By the time I got to the back garden, I was exhausted so the ferns still require a little attention as you can see by all the brown leaves.
The wheelbarrow nursery also requires much needed attention.
A touch rusty but still very useful
How are things in your garden?
Pete and I are away for a few days. I will moderate your lovely comments on our return and catch up with your posts.
