Spring is arriving finally. It feels late this year but as a google remember notice informed me, it is exactly the same time as last year.
Well, that was taken on the 6th October 2019. This one was taken just 2 days ago.
As you can see, there is not much difference! It is a similar story all around the garden.
The lawn is a carpet of yellow yet again. The flowers are Cape Daisies. An invasive species that turns the whole mountain side yellow when it flowers.
I’ll try for a better photo tomorrow when I get to leave the house again.
The veg plot has almost been reclaimed from the very wild rocket which has flowered all winter long giving one of our nectar feeding birds a source of nectar. Both of us have seen the Eastern Spinebill hovering in front of the flowers gathering nectar.
My lavendar is flowering well after a long dry summer. There to the left is a different variety and has yet to recover from the attention of a chicken landing on it. Sadly they happen to love lavendar. It is the smell. They love rolling in it!
After a visit to IKEA recently, I came home with 2 new orchids. Both are settling in well and flowering beautifully.
