Garden goodies harvested this month: giant rhubarb, silverbeet, English spinach, broccoli, beetroot, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, carrots, all sorts of lettuce, cabbages, strawberries, raspberries.
The ‘bloomin’ garden (sorry Peter Cundall) is currently awash with roses, lavender, Oriental lilliums, hydrangeas (those that haven’t been burnt by a few nasty hot windy days — yes, we get them), dahlias, daisies, penstamon, Californian tree poppies (can’t remember their proper name, but they’re as big as dinner plates!), pelargonums, alstromeria, Japanese wind flowers, carnations, salvia, sage of many different varieties, and all the usual little visitors — alyssum, poppies, violas (and lots of pretty weeds!)
Thought we’d include a few shots of the unusually green gardens of December/January — so many people visit Tasmania in the summer and wonder why it is so brown. We had unexpected but very welcome rain very late this year, and so, no water restrictions, and green grass! Hooray!
