Isn't that incredible? Such intricate detail.
Now back to the weeds! You may think there are weeds in my veggie garden but looks are deceiving as I have already weeded most of it. I actually planted flowers to attract the bees and confuse the pests. The Landcress which was planted to deter the brassica pests is growing really well. You can see it behind the lettuce that just came up by itself recently. No need to plant lettuce here as they just appear at this time of the year. LOL!
The brassicas are nearly finished with just a couple of cauliflowers growing now so there is a lot of work to be done in this garden when I can muster up enough energy. The CEO bought me some sugarcane mulch from ALDI which is on special so that is a job to be done soon as well.
Some of the bromeliads are now coming into flower but these are myleast favourite ones...
...especially this one which is really, really spiky and you don't want to be silly enough to get close up to take a photo. Don't ask me how I know ;-)
A while back the CEO got me a fuschsia cutting from the lady we buy our honey from and I am anxiously waiting for these to open up.
This yellow kalanchoe isn't looking as nice as it did last year so perhaps it needs repotting and bit of TLC for a change. Still...it is pretty, don't you think?
The freesias are nearly finished, the Flanders poppies are flowering as are the California poppies which never fail to appear despite the drought which isn't surprising I guess seeing as California doesn't seem to get that much rain. I am looking forward to seeing some of the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers gardens as I am always amazed at what some of our clever gardeners grow each year despite the weather conditions.
If you live in the region do think about coming up the hill for a visit as the city is looking resplendent at the moment.
