The Autumn Garden
My tiny little winter vegetable garden is planted, except for the garlic. Vegetables planted out in the earth get choked by the clover/oxalis so I use planters which are easier to keep weed free.
Rocket, spring onions, lettuces and leeks. In other pots I have parsley, celery and still some green pepper plants.
Youngest grandaughter helped plant the leeks. It was nice to have company. This one likes gardening but she doesn't like having her photo taken
The greening of the garden. Soon this whole area will be overgrown with clover and nasturtiums. I love the green growth, as long as it's not in my pots
The lettuces and leeks come in bundles of 20. I plant the surplus wherever there's a bit of space. These are in with the hydrangea which will be dormant till spring
The only show of colour
The thornless bougainvillia given to me by my son-in-law
We had a young lad to come in and clean the backyard. Gone are the weeds and piles of dry grasses and branches. Gone too are a few bags of old bits of wood, iron and assorted other treasures.
