Monday morning was lovely, and as I worked in the garden I thought the weather was more like Spring than Summer. I managed to pot up a couple of portulaca seedlings and re-pot two cordyline's that I grew from cuttings taken earlier in the year.
I also started tidying up my gardening shed. It has been very messy of late.
On Wednesday morning I trimmed one of the Durantas that had become very leggy. I weeded a small area of one of the ornamental gardens, and watered some of the trees in the orchard. I sowed some seed into punnets. The seeds were Lobelia, Marigold, Cosmos, Phlox and Candytuft.
This morning was another lovely morning to be up early and into the garden. While I listened to ducks whistling while they flew overhead, I watered some plants and carried out some more weeding in one of the ornamental garden beds. I also raked up some fallen bark from the Angophora Costata that sheds into and around my main ornamental garden. It is also known as the Smooth Barked Apple and is sometimes also called Rose gum and Rusty gum. It sheds its bark at this time of year and the bark underneath is a pinkish-salmon colour. Quite pretty from a distance but ever so messy. This photo shows an Angophora Costata on the left, though the bark is a much more of a salmon colour than this shown in this photo.
I also took some photos of the garden this morning but have yet to load them from the camera. Perhaps they will be ready for a future post. 😊
