Garden......

The garden had been getting a big pull into line lately....... It's starting to show.....thankgoodness,.....mind you it is a constant work in progress but if you can stay one step ahead it is much better..........when my lawn is mowed life can feel so much better.......... Still got some work to go but I love going out moving hoses early or late and pulling a few weeds, raking a path or tidying up a bush etc.........to garden out here is a labour of love but it is so worth it........
the moon was still up when I went out this morning.......
the Jacarandas are putting on a gorgeous display......What I went to do was take a pic of the one next to my "Snow in Summer"......
And for once 'snow in summer' is flowering with it..... One is usually finished before the other starts.......I do have an obsession with Jacarandas as I have about 20 to 25 in the garden actually went out and counted 23.......see told you I have an obsession..........Some are a bit younger but they are all flowering now......
snow in summer closer up..........so pretty..........
The Agapanthus seem to be early.... 

Although some are just putting up heads now in other beds.......
This bed needs hay down.........I have a bale at the end of the garden it just has not happened yet.........this bed also contains my zucchinis and button squash and a pumpkin.........
Actually just looking at this geranium but I think I need to move some of it into the aggies..........the colours would be great together........since they are flowering together............
this was a piece of geranium I got from The Vale on our sewing retreat..........with permission of course............it just keeps flowering and flowering........
one of my favourite roses..........ask if you want the name...........
its a "David Austin" Rose.......I lost a couple due to too much bore water on it so being careful in a new spot for this one and using the dam water too.......
Anyway I'm enjoying it so much out in the garden I'm having 'girls drinks' tomorrow night......It's a "neighbours thing"........
Mind you my neighbours stretch a hell of a lot further then yours would but we still call ourselves neighbours...... And that is very special......
Have a great weekend.....
hope it involved lots of secret sewing..........
catch you later...........

Keeping the love of blogging alive............

  7. Thank you I so miss seeing the jacarandas blooming this time of year, so very special to see them in your garden! I brought some with me when we moved but the frost got them. So nice to see things still flowering in your garden despite all the heat you have been having.

  8. Love your jacaranda's, I tried one but it got frosted too, and you have so much space for your garden, they shine.

  9. I can smell them from here....or wish I could. We have a cold northwest wind and snow so I'm a tad jealous.

  18. Nature has come to a halt here in Germany, it is cold and rainy and it will not be long before the first snow. I like your jacarandas a lot, and if they grew here I guess I would have as many of them as you do.

  19. Garden is looking good & I thought the agapanthus were a bit early, as when I had lots of them, I had them as arrangements for Xmas time. Take care.

  20. I like it too when the lawn has been mowed, it can make a big difference to the way the garden looks even if i haven't had time to get out and weed the garden beds. Lovely flowers ,especially the snow in summer.Looks great next to the Jacaranda, mine isn't quite out yet.
