Look what I discovered blooming in the garden - a beautiful blue anemone.
It's a bit early for Spring though. I always feel sorry for plants that grow or bloom outside of their season. Yes, I know, I'm a bit silly.
I haven't really posted much about the garden, in fact I haven't mention the vegie patches in a while either.
There's not a huge amount to report with the vegie patches, mostly getting ready for sowing in July and trying to get the compost to do its thing. But I do have broccoli, beetroot and brussel sprouts on the go.
The daisies always seem to be flowering and certainly liven up the garden beds a bit.
My row of twenty-something Iceberg roses out by the front fence are still going strong, though have lost a few leaves thanks to blackspot. I'm not a big fan of spraying for anything so I put up with the dropped leaves.
It's such a classic rose. They've been growing through the pickets in an attempt to get closer to the sun. I don't mind too much and like to think the passers by enjoy them too.
Almost getting to pruning time and multiple trips with all the greenwaste to the tip. But that's ok if it means a trip to the tip-shop :)
The foxgloves did so well last year, in fact there are still a few lonely blooms.
Anyone fancy a few foxglove seedlings? All that groundcover you see here - well they're foxglove seedlings, self seeded. I've been pulling them out and giving them away but I still have WAAAAYYYY to many.
This is the lawn near the flower beds and you guessed it, all those plants growing there where there should be grass are foxgloves!!!! Whoopsie, I have to try to get rid of them before Lyndon realises what my garden is doing to his lawn. Ahem, nothing to see here Lyndon, nothing to see here...
ps seriously, if anyone in Hobart wants some seedlings, please let me know!
pps what's with blogger comments? I have been trying to comment on your blogs but it just wont work!
