In the meantime, here's a photolog of the only gardening project I've managed to complete in the last year.
|Trusty Sledgehammer = No concrete|
|Railway Sleepers, Manure, Sand and Dirt|
|Water it and wait|
|Bee Refuelling Station|
|The teen years|
|Not tall at all|
|Passing Californians (unfortunately drowned in two straight months of rain)|
|Mid-sized, profusely flowering variety|
I now have a completely different set of plants in there (foxglove, violas, dianthus and poppies) since the only perenniel was the Californian Poppies and they (like my hardenbergias and a couple of other Australian natives) couldn't take the megajillion litres of water that fell on them over the opening months of the year.
