Early March and it’s still very hot, very dry. Promised rain seems to go around us.
On the verge: Gerberas have come up for their second season and are flowering well. The soil has definitely improved. Zinnias are still flowering. A blue dot marks where the street tree will go.
March 19, 2017: After yet another week of the rain and storms going around us, last night we had a welcome downpour.
Batchelors buttons (Gomphrena Globosa) is flowering well and popular with Blue Triangle butterfly and native bees. Could be good in the flower verge in spring/summer as the plants are more attractive than may flowering annuals. Seeds from Perennial Poppies.
