the cycle of the seasons

21 04 2012

As Autumn approaches things are changing in the garden. The flowers on the Haemanthus Red have faded and died, but left seeds to create the next generation… James came by this morning and repotted the leafy bulbs into the old wheelbarrow which should mean we’ll have a great display next season when they bloom again.

We’re getting ready to do some work in the front garden which is long over due. I’ll document the progress of the transformation from a field of Alyssum that it’s become, to a designed low maintenance garden. It will feature a timber wall, some iron rings, and a bunch of interesting plants…

So, hopefully by the time there’s another change in the seasons we’ll be all set for Spring to encourage some growth in the new garden.
