Back in the Garden.

orangeToday the sun shone. It has not done that for weeks. June and July in South Australia have been extremely wet. We passed our average monthly rainfall within the first weeks.

A multitude of flowers, fruits and vegetables have sprung up in unsuspected garden nooks. I am in bliss. I love the random nature of self seeding, the discovery of something new and unexpected – in the garden that is!

The downside is the plethora of weeds that has overrun my roses, pots and vegetable patch.  I had my first chance to get into the weeding today. The frenzy of yanking the offending plants from the dirt was very satisfying.

Three (and four-fifths) of my front vege beds are now weed-free, leaving more room for my carrots, broccoli, lettuce, silverbeet and mustard. I might even be able to start some of my planned landscaping done. (A regular winter project for me.)

And finally, this little raven collecting for the nest. Spring is on the way.

Back in the Garden.
