When I moved here in 2009 this wisteria appeared - I presume it was a seedling. Over the last couple of years I have trained it up and over the pergola. It now has a group of flowers at the base, another halfway up the post and more hanging down although a lot are lying on the ground, presumably knocked down by the numerous birds.
When we were in the north I had a couple of New South Wales Waratah bushes but do not have one down here, however, Doug has several and I picked these flowers yesterday.
The clivias always do well.
I had just one geranium maderense but scattered its seeds around and now have several of them some, like this one, growing on the rock wall.
The magnolia at the bottom of the garden must be past its best judging by all the petals underneath it
There is also the promise of delicious plums to come judging by the flowers.
The weather is springlike. We have had some lovely warm days and I have managed to get into the garden and have a go at the numerous weeds. This morning was lovely and reasonably warm as Doug collected me for our Saturday morning ritual of the market, dog walking and supermarket shopping. The temperature has just dropped and there is quite steady rain. I just checked and rain or showers are forecast for the next ten days just when I want to get on with the weeding.
