How does your garden grow?
Stitching together some garden goodness for a quick row by row swap this weekend…. made me think of checking on the progress of the ‘real’ garden. Seeing as it’s spring here in the southern hemisphere, there’s lots blooming at this time of year…. the roses….. the tropical frangipani, and hibiscus…. the crotons, the red torch ginger, my pineapple (which I struck from sticking the pineapple top in the ground after we’d eaten the fruit!!!!), even the bees were working hard in my bromeliad! The pink flowering rosemary, the gerberas, a climbing vanilla pod orchid, and even the spider has his place (or her place!). I like to call her Charlotte……or maybe Charlie if it’s a male???….I wonder if Charlie, my cat, will be offended???…doesn’t look like it! So far, the garden’s doing ok. No silver bells or cockle shells though….but lots of pretty flowers all in a row don’t you think?!!! Sugary hugs
