It's rather fun to look back over the months of just what one does achieve in the garden..
SQUEAL spring is a coming - next months Garden Share will probably be photos of spring blossoms every where. How will you cope Joyce?
Pst I'm mighty proud of this photo ( total fluke!) of the almond tree just itching to burst into flower- .
The hop vine is waking up.
What a shocking price! But as I wanted a white one I brought it - but got home and Abbey noticed I'd picked up a pink one. What a shame I had to go back to Harrisons' Garden Centre on Monday and swap it.
Brent Brought me another camellia for my red garden. Canterbury Japonica
Violets oh how lucky am I that I have soo many different coloured violet patches I could sit with them all day long.
The first iris out for the season which I won't pick it will last longer in the garden. (Ali I think this is one of yours)
Now that my Poppy's are coming through it is nearly time to weed around them
Last year the first poppy flowered 1st November. I sell my seeds on Trade Me for $5.00 maybe I should be potting them and selling them for $12.99 since there are folks like me that will pay such a price for a poppy
I've an order of herbs coming from The Fragrant Garden one of my much loved places to buy herbs from (the owner is a herbalist). In my naturopath course one of the units coming up is herbs for the respiratory system. It's not a requirement to grow the herbs we learn about but for me growing and watching each herb is another way for me to really get to know the plant.
Gasp the Fragrant Garden is up for sale. I will miss Ian and Marilyn's knowledge.
