Yesterday, 49 people were shot and killed in Christchurch. The attack has shocked the nation. I am sure you have read or heard about it where you live: for once New Zealand is in the news, and not for anything good. These events always make you stop and think for a moment, and one of the best places to do this is outside in the garden. I am sure all the other Six on Saturday bloggers will agree. Thanks once again to The Propagator for allowing us to share what is going on in our gardens. First up, a moment of reflection, looking at one of the ferns.
The Japanese Anemones continue to bloom and add a gorgeous splash of pink in amongst the green. There are several clumps of them dotted about by the side of the house.
The marigolds are still going strong, with new blooms adding a touch of colour to the pots on the terrace. A nasturtium has popped up in an unexpected pot…but will just leave it there.
I will need to do some trimming and replanting here, but in the meantime, the oregano and spider plant are making friends.
The rosemary that I moved to a better position is beginning to rejuvenate, including having flowers.
I missed last week as we were away for the weekend over in the Wairarapa. Two weeks ago I posted a picture of a camellia bud and here is another. I am so looking forward to seeing the blooms again.
Sorry for the brevity of today’s post, and lack of updating on the seed trough. I was out again today and my gardening will be done tomorrow!
