Here in SoCal. it is technically not spring. However, this is the time of year we plant spring-type flowers because it is so mild. Probably like most parts of Australia. I like to get out in the gardens, between now and about May, to do the heavy, big projects. Re-do a large garden area or install a patio, etc. The weather is just so pleasant during most of our fall/winter that it makes the best sense to do so!
Michelle - if you add a comment under where I put my comment to your photo, I automatically get notified that you have added a reply. But here on my profile is fine too!
I added a heap of photos today to my page from my trip up to Qld last week. I discovered today that I can again post photos to a particular group, which I have not been able to do for a long time. Some glitch in system that seems to have self rectified itself. It was very annoying having to put all photos only on my page instead of being able to link my photos to a partiular group! Have you joined any other groups here on GS.
Your garden is an absolute knock out - wish we had been free that weekend and I would have come up to view it. Have you lived there long as looks like you have put inone hell of a mighty effort into making your garden so beautiful. Congratulations and thank you for sharing your lovely garden with all us GS folks!
Hi Michelle, such a big garden. You must never have time to get up to mischief. Do you have your broms well sheltered? I don't picture them enjoying a cold winter up there on the Blue Mountains. I've just been thinning out a few sections and remulching. The results are so rewarding. Happy gardening.
Just up in Coffs at present, staying overnight on our way up to Queensland. Have car boot full of plants, cuttings etc for Lillian on GS, as I'm meeting up with her Friday to visit Open Garden and for us to share plants!
Would have loved to have got up to Bilpin, but too much happening. Might make it up the Mtns next month.
I would dearly love to belong to a Gardening Group in Ingleburn, but never mind have a great gardening pal who shares my love of garden centres!!
Okay talk later as on limited WiFi access here.
"Yes, this season extended fall into holidays here. I just put my canna lilies away in the garage today after freezing last nite. I won't know how they managed until spring, but some will live. So sorry your rhododendron died. I got the fuchsias…"
