Last Day of June

I cannot believe it is over 2 weeks since I last posted. What a lot has grown since then. The weather has been wet and humid, ideal for my jungle, I think you will notice a big difference between now and my last post!


Excuse the old chair in this pic, its due to be broken up and put on the Chimnea.


See what I mean! How things have grown. I am being really good and feeding everything like crazy this year, I hope it pays off.


There is a BIG difference here! My left had neighbour has cut her hedge back to fence height!!! You could knock me down with a feather. I could not believe it when I went out earlier this week. She is usually very reluctant to chop 'anything' back. All I can say is WOW! It brings sooooo much light into my jungle now. Wonder what she wants me to chop back?


Can't believe how big the Hiniba is already, especially after such a slow start!


I had been wondering if my Butia palm had been growing, so I marked it the other week and as you can see it is growing. Looking a bit yellow so it obviously needs some type of feed at the moment! Will look into that and see what is needed.


My lovely, lovely Arid bed! I do love this, I have put some masks on the fence for fun!!


I think I may have worked out why my Agave is not doing well......... ants!!! It has been a big problem in the Arid bed. Anyway I dug it out and boy did the little blighters bite!! Never had that before. So gave it a good soak, a feed, haircut and new pot! Will give it a while and see how it goes.


Looks better already!

 
I just love the colour of this... yep, I have no idea what its name is, as it came minus a label. Sadly its flowering, but I have removed some of the leaves , so fingers crossed they may take.


My very first Agave, is magnificant, just love the markings on it, looks so healthy.


I went out the other day to collect a cactus I 'won' on Ebay for £3.50. Came back with £25 of cactus and succulents!! As you can see my collection is growing lol!!
