I recently spent the morning in the garden with our gardener / handyman and I am very proud of our efforts, everything is neat and tidy again. Sadly though it is quite dry. We have been enjoying a very hot summer with very little rain.
Our fig tree has been very kind to us this year and produced more than enough fruit for us and all the birds.
I rescued this succulent from a rubbish heap and it has thanked me by growing beautifully.
Our attempts at creating a topiary peach tree have been fairy successful, however it grows so fast that we can’t always keep up with it. I’m still baffled why the previous owners planted where it is. If left to its own devices, the two bedrooms behind it would never get any sunlight.
For some obscure reason this rope was placed in the tree to be kept out of the way and has just stayed there. Oh well, it’s original I guess.
I am very happy to see the first peppadews of the season.
