Today was gardening day.
An early trip (after breakfast in bed!) to Bunnings hardware store to pick up all the bits and pieces we needed to build another raised vegetable garden bed (for the tomatoes this year) and some more straw (sugar cane mulch) for the new vegetable garden and other areas. Whilst DH built the raised bed, I fertilised, pruned, moved some pots around and removed the plants (mostly bulbs) that were in the way of the new bed. I have been putting this job off for a while now, but as the weather was glorious, it was time to get it done and it turned out much easier than I thought it would.
|Isn't this gorgeous - the plant is called "Pig-Face" and only flowers for a short time once the weather warms up in spring. It grows in very poor soil and requires no watering.|
|A view of my garden - not a lot of room to plant new things, more like a jungle - but I always seem to find a spot for something new!!|
Tomorrow will be grocery day - off to Costco in the morning to do a "big" shop, then home in time for lunch and feet up in the afternoon! Tomorrow evening I'm off to see a musical with my theatre friends (dinner first). It's been a tough week!!!
