I cannot believe I haven't posted for 2 weeks, time is getting faster and faster!!!
I have been up to mums for a long weekend, prior to this my back decided to play up. I find it annoying as I have been good and not done anything silly to make it go. Anyway it wasn't curing its self on its own so I am now under a physio!!
My gardener came, I am quite exited about this, I have never ever used a gardener before, so when hubby asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I said 'a gardener please' and so it was arranged. Much better than something that will gather dust. He will do all the heavy work for me.
Anyway he started last Friday, and did in under 2 hours what would have taken me a few days!
The TRex is now by the water butt, I do hope we haven't killed it. I was thinking about growing a Passionflower up the wall behind it, but knowing my luck it will grow up the wall and flower the other side!!!
So the Trex and Red Cordyline have been moved and my jungle bed is looking a bit empty, not that I'm worried, at least now my Maureli's and Monty will be able to stretch its legs.
The bamboo which came out of the planter and really 'run' away with itself, had only been in there for less than 2 years. Anyway it is going to my daughters and will be going in a trough and acting as a screen.
My schefflera is really romping away since I put it in a larger pot last year. I am being careful with it as I would be very sad to lose it as I love its leaves.
The Red Cordyline is squeezed in behind the Phormium, not a favourite plant of mine, I bought it as a filler a number of years ago and the damn thing hasn't died! I thought the red one was not as hardy, well we will see.
I have a few more plants to be moved before we start work on the new arid bed. I have been shopping for a few speciman plants for the new bed. I am quite excited.
I love doing new things in the garden. It seems no time since it was all grass and had climbing frames and swings in it, then tents for camping out parties. 18 years ago we dug our first pond, far too small of course and from there it has evolved! I am certain it has far to go from now too!
