It is another lovely, sunny day here in Wellington. We did a big food shop this morning, in preparation for an Easter feast tomorrow, and the house is filled with the smell of a cake baking. Meanwhile though, what is going on outside? Thanks once again to The Propagator for allowing us to share what is going on in our gardens.
First up, the long weekend should give me a chance to plant the rest of the bulbs, but given that we were out all day yesterday, have been busy today, have guests tomorrow and going to the cinema on Monday, I wonder if I will be able to find the time. Ah well, Thursday is Anzac Day, and I am also on holiday next Friday, so there will be time then.
I’ve brought the basil inside, perhaps a little late, though everything else is still fine at the moment. We don’t get frost where we are (well, I have seen it once, and this year could be another year of course), but it does get chilly at night.
The random nasturtium seeds I planted are popping up, including this one. I’ll need to move it somewhere a bit bigger.
I love the shapes of these branches, twisted round one of the posts round the side of the house. Nature is taking over….
Here is our outdoor succulent, which could do with a bit of a weed and TLC. Another mini project.
And to finish, another tree and sky picture….
The featured image at the top of the post is of a New Zealand flax plant beside Paraparaumu beach. It looked stunning against the blue skies.
