Big weekend in the garden

This weekend had stunning weather. Our winter was warm and short and a lot less freezing than our first one last year. This first weekend of Spring experienced gorgeous weather - we ended up in T-shirts at one point with a temperature around 15 degrees. I have finished the vege gardens in the front yard and finished the first plantings of Rocket, Spinach and Lettuce and added some Beetroot to the back garden beds with Carrots. My peas and Potatoes which I planted about 3 weeks ago have started to appear and so far they are looking heatlhy!. The front vege patch can now be accessed by a new set of stairs and gate from our deck which A spent all weekend building. So we have a fully functional home in all four corners now. Very exciting.

climber

We have a climber outside my studio which was fairly woody and not very high when we moved in over a year ago. With Mum's help we have brought her back to life, pruning and generally looking after. She has now flowered. Hopefully we will identify it soon.
