In the garden

If you’re in Melbourne you’ll already know that today has been just beautiful! (Election results aside!)

I spent a great deal of it out in the garden doing some long needed trimming and planting.

There are now baskets of pansies and violas..


Herbs drying in the house, rosemary in flower, freshly planted coriander and lemon balm in the garden and ever-growing broad beans..


There’s lots of pretty daisy-like plants…


And everything else in between…


From top left – this succulent has amazing flowers, my camellias are finally out, magpies have been stealing my basket liner, oxalis seeking the sun, my favourite Erlicheer jonquils, purchase of the day – a peach tree!, hyacinths getting ready to bloom, a pot I planted out this afternoon, attempts to capture a been on lavender with a point and shoot in the wind!

I hope your day was a lovely as mine.
