Busy Sunday in the Garden

Hallo all, I'm glad you have dropped by!

As usual, this post is picture heavy - to show what Alan & I were up to today out in the garden! One of the hottest, sunniest, most humid days, we decide to work out in the garden. I suppose it's our way though!

So let's start with the pictures and a running commentary on what's happening:-

I repotted these plants into larger pots ( breaking one in the process, unfotunately

Here's the piece I broke off the top - I am letting it dry out and will pot it up soon - then we will have 2 of them!

I thought that I had lost the mint that was growing in this pot - but if you look closely , you can see it coming on again - so plenty of water for it now!!

Here is the bali Hut with no furniture - Alan is preparing the timber for re - oiling tomorrow.

and here is a closer look at the re potted plants - you can see the top missing from the back one!

Back to the entrance to the back garden - we have been pulling all the large ferns from around the cycad here - can you see the flower bud forming in the middle of the plant?  All the ferns were smothering the poor thing - still have plenty more to pull out though.

So, walking around the garden in a clockwise direction - look to your right and here is a new baby Eureka Lemon tree - can't wait for him to grow up - I LOVE lemons!!

Behind the lemon is this Bird of Paradise - this is the first time this one has flowered, moving it must have helped!

On the other side of the walk way is my lovely Oak Leaf Frangipani - it has flowered well this year.

Along the back fence, the ferns are doing well - all weeded and watered, The  self sewn ferns on the palm trunk now need to be removed - can you see how the trunk is beginning to shed it's bark? So there's another job for tomorrow!

The corner at the back of the Bali Hut - the bromeliads here have grown massively since I planted them - I think they must love the spot under the Golden Canes!

 My Lavender and Rosemary I am growing in pots - they have been potted on into larger pots also.

So we are now collapsing inside, after visiting the dog park and having our dinner here at home - it has been a very long hot day!

Take Care

Let's see if this seems (for me at least) that it all depends on what platform the blogger is using and how well it plays with my mobile app to have a comment take.
