Are we too late? Three x 1000 litres containers now connected to the guttering around the green wooding potting shed, with one and a half already filled. I wonder if the heaviest of rainfall is behind us now.
It's been dry and sunny all week, with an unpredicted shower last night, which will help the potatoes. I've been weeding, potting up and transplanting all week and the garden looks loved. Peach, nectarine and fig trees are putting out their new shoots, the bignonia is on the move and the chameleons are still to be found in amongst the greenery. I found a big green and brown one on the ground recently, facing down Yang with a loud hiss.
The arbour round the back of the house is coming along and I can't wait to put a new jasmine and a beautiful Australian/NZ plant, handbergia, amongst the trellis. It'll be a place to relax and read in the Spring and Autumn. Maybe I can do my Spanish homework there - I've started lessons again so am spending less time on the computer.
