Hi all, this is one of the reasons I haven't had much time for crafting. A few blogging buddies have asked I post some pics so here they are. Raining here again, my little fella went to camp surfing I am sure he was going to be as wet out of the water than in, just got a text saying they are returning early to school, poor things, he was so excited.
This was the garden 13/10/08 after the rain, which is a little bit of a problem lol! We had tried growing grass on the left of the garden, with a border of natives down the side, fruit trees at the back and right side and magnolias down the middle.
Sept/Oct 10, phase 2 the path completed for now will continue round in one of the next phases lol!
Now phase 4, here is DH in action, we, (yes we DW turn her turn too lol) had to pick all this area as the ground is clay, we put gypsum and watered from our tanks to try and help. Can you see Rusty taking it easy on the trampoline lol!
Hired a rotavator and added 5 ute loads of top soil,
then 6 or 7 utes of scoria, this has purple rock as well as the red and grey and planted up with mostly natives, will post more pictures when they are much bigger (hopefully)
This is phase 3, yes this is another attempt at grass, this side of the green mesh is our patch of our England Garden, I have a border with daffodils, gladiolas, blue bells, pansies etc, still got to finish planting it up.
Just love these smiley faced pansies
Hardenberger, Purple Wanderer to grow up the green trellis. There is also a white one two
Pig Face Gold
Pig Face Orange
Kangaroo Paw, we have six varieties, the native birds love them, this is the biggest, the rest we bought smaller
Here is one of our little visitors on a kangaroo paw, had to be quick to get this, they fly around so quickly lol!
Our first lemon, we have three oranges nearly grown too
I call these lilies sorry don't know there full name but they are beautiful
Off to work now, hope you are all well and have a wonderful weekend.
Thank you for visiting, happy crafting, take careX:)
