Bulbs galore


I am hoping my new place is good for bulbs. I emtied out some pots where the bulbs have vitually dried out and this is the amount probably tripled of what I put in a year ago.

Bulbs of Hyacinth, Tulip and daffodils. Lots of fun to come!!!
This was the sky before the storm hit last night.

It will be a garden paradise

The western side of the house, the front.
Front gate which has not been used in some time!!!
A lovely callistemon but a huge thistle too!!!

                                              A special pondering spot.

A rainforest gully on the property.

I am looking forward to sharing my new home with many animals and people. There is lots of work to be done but I see it as a worthwhile challenge and I welcome advice along the way.

Lots of gardening happenings April 2010

Thanks to my new followers I am inspired to share some garden pics with you.

The first cyclamen flower on a plant from last year.

My Arrowroot has grown to mammoth proportions. I dug it up today and put it under cover in preparation for the frosts that are soon to appear.
 And below is a lemongrass plant along with a bulb from the arrowroot, the same as what I began with over a year ago from my mothers place.

A huge Monsteria Deliciosa (I think it is???)

Is this a Monsteria deliciosa???

On the property I looked at today this is one of the many fruiting trees, there is a plum, quince and there are many citrus trees.

Flowers aplenty: Hydrangeas, petunias and Calendulas.

Saturday 9th January 2010

The pink small petaled plant is my neighbours specimen.

This one is in my garden, funny that this year the other two plants have only one flower head between them, my neighbour says probably because I am a scrooge with water. Well not the case this year, I mulched heavily and checked today and they are lovely and moist under the mulch.

Two colours of Agapanthas, the white and the blue below. Some have not flowered and I wonder why?

Marigold of which a lady I gardened for said she would spread over the ACT.

The purple petunias a bit hit by the strong sun.

The one carnation flower, more are on their way after I deheaded the tops.
