It is Saturday again, and we are still in our bubbles. The bulb order has yet to be placed, but will do so this weekend. I should get a delivery in about 2 to 3 weeks, not too late to plant, and hopefully by then I can also get hold of some more potting compost as well and a couple of more suitable pots. There really isn’t much new to report this week, but thought I would do a post anyway as it is fun to do and I love seeing what is going on in gardens around the world. Thanks once again to The Propagator for allowing us to share what is going on in our gardens.
First up, something new at least as the mahonia is in full flower this week. Lovely yellow blooms right up against the house and one of the windows. There are several plants here, and all are in bloom.
There are a few Japanese anemones left, otherwise there are lots of very pretty, to me at least, green furry balls.
Next up, it really is autumn with these magnolia seed pods. Quite fascinating to see the amazing shapes and colour too.
Next to the herbs. I still have lots of parsley, thyme, mint, marjoram, along with the pineapple sage, ordinary sage and oregano. One thing I miss is chives. Something to remedy in the future.
I know I have posted pictures of my chillies before, but here are some more. I sit and look at them every day while working, so they have become a big part of my life!
And to finish this week, signs of hope…buds on the camellia, all the bushes, ours and our neighbours.
That is all from me this week. As usual, I am looking forward to seeing everyone’s beautiful gardens in other parts of the world. Take care out there! Kia kaha.
