I started my Saturday in a blissful way. A big ocean swim at Coogee with a couple of swimming buddies. The water was clear, 19 degrees and there were loads of fish. I had set the rest of the day aside to garden but as I neared home, the rain started. And it didn't stop for the rest of the day. So I put on my outdoor gear (the stuff I wear doing hikes/bushwalks) and gardened in the pouring rain. It was amazing. Once I accepted that I was going to get wet and dirty, it was really very beautiful. I kept inviting to kids to join me, but they seemed happy staying dry playing Lego. Saturday was topped off by a great night out at our school fundraiser (dressed as a Bollywood star).
New path beside the pond (can you see the pond hidden under the water plants?)
This wasn't one of the projects yesterday, I just love the colour of the chillies
Planted iceberg lettuce, and spring onions (back)
Lots of cutting back (mainly Vietnamese mint and other weeds)
Re-planted Finn's succulent garden and re-instated Dr Camel as President. I have been inspired by Jamie at Garden Amateur to have a succulent garden with personalities inside. You can read about the legendary Mrs Lithops here and here.
Planted Nicola Potatoes in this grow-bag (and the rest in the garden bed).
