One of the few things flowering in our garden at the moment are the Japanese Windflowers, though they have been bashed around a bit by the wind.
We have been rather busy in the garden over Easter. Quite a few jobs were ticked off the list.
We sorted through and divied out compost around the garden, we trimmed the lollipop tree (my name - it's a New Zealand native that I cannot remember), re-potted plants, planted out my lemon tree that refuses to grow and swept like nobodies business.
What have we been doing here you say? Someone decided that a pop-up spray watering thingamabob was in order and spent hours digging up the back lawn, only to discover that we do not have enough water pressure to run the darn thing. They didn't pop up properly and just gurgled. Major fail. Man of the house was not very happy, to say the least.
After another trip to the hardware store, he ripped up the system and dug a new, single route and attached a single 360 degree automatic pop up sprinkler that actually works! It even reaches my garden beds. Woohoo! Success.
In the next few weeks we want to top dress this area so the excavations won't matter :)
Have you been busy in the garden too? Doesn't it help you sleep soundly at night?
