It is a gorgeous sunny day here in Wellington. The skies are blue, the cicadas are singing and it really doesn’t feel like autumn. The seedlings in the propagator/trough are waving their little green leaves and I’ve just gathered some chicken thyme and chives to add to our dinner. Thanks once again to The Propagator for allowing us to share what is going on in our gardens.
So first up, the weather, which as you can see, is still (mostly) lovely. I’m back to watering in the evenings.
I picked up some more Jet Fire miniature daffodils after several of you told me to get some more. I also got some muscari bulbs (a favourite) and some anemones for a bright splash of colour. Now I need to plant them!
Three nasturtiums have popped up in different places, where I least expected to find them. I’ll repot them rather than leaving them where they are, and look forward to seeing some more flowers.
To my pots of herbs, and the sage plant which had been looking sad for a while is now doing well, the lemon balm is flourishing, and I am keeping my eyes on the basil which may have to come inside in the next few weeks.
The Japanese anemones are still blooming, filling spaces in the garden with their lovely pale pink flowers.
And now a question…what is the plant below? No-one can agree/decide. Anyone of you knowledgeable folk out there know? We have a whole lot of them outside one of our downstairs windows. The tallest one must be about 1.5m high and gets what looks like a type of berry in the winter.
So that is all from me this Saturday. Hope you have all had a lovely week and look forward to seeing your gardening stories.
