    End of June Update

    What a lovely month it has been. My dog, Ben, is 4 months old now, and has grown so much. Together we’ve been exploring the surrounding countryside every day and found some really beautiful places. I’ve been photographing lots of wildlife too, and learning a lot about our native flora...

    Basil at 1 month

    Basil and Deck Container garden
    It’s been 1 month since planting. So far it’s grown up and leggy, and it’s tried to bolt, but i pruned it back, but I will have to simply wait and see if it will get bushy. It has pushed out stems in the right places, It just needs some time to grow.

    Old Growth/Bloom Day

    Hah, thanks for that badge, Folia, even though I went and hid for many months. :) I’ll write about my orchid keikis and the grow house over in the Orchids Group. But yes, apparently I’ll have been here a long time. I think nearly 2 years… or is it 3? Anyway there are many reason...

    Back to myfolia for a new year...

    Just shared myfolia with a friend and it spurred me to check my own profile, which I didn’t keep track of last year…now I will have to figure out all that I have done and insert it correctly. My new year plans are a native plant (edible/medicinal where I can, plants for the birds, but...

    Indoor Plants Update

    Pothos , Lithops , indoor garden , and Orchid Cactus
    I’ve been away from folia for almost a month! Things have been super busy with my husband job searching and finishing up his masters and a lot of other things. I have a lot of things to catch up on, so I’ll go quickly: I repotted the lithops. I’ve also noticed the leaves begin...

    Busy times

    Rear garden
    Plenty of jobs and goals achieved this past month except one, the writing of more muses here! The New small shed is up and in use and an old dismantled greenhouse is awaiting erection at the allotment, waiting for a day of no rain. New potatoes planted out and now my main Greenhouse seeds are sow...

    Update - Grape Vine

    Grape Vine and Fruit Bearing garden
    The vine will be able to be pruned back even more this year. 2011 was a banner year for it. Most of the fruit was disease free and the berries very large. There was just too much of it! I had previously left over 20 main vines growing but will cut that back to only 10 or less. The fewer the bette...

    Update - How it survived

    Leucosceptrum japonicum and Shade Spaces garden
    This gift bloomed it’s first year in the ground. Pretty tiny white blooms in clusters on long stalks. The leaves are still green as we’ve had an incredibly mild winter. I let the blooms dry on the plant and scattered the seeds around the plant a week ago just in case they will grow on...

    Late Summer Blooms

    Well, there aren’t too many blooms left but there are a few… and a few favorites. Both of the Caryopteris are nice, and despite it’s reputation I do like the Japanese Anemone which has been fairly well behaved in my garden. I am sorry to say that neither the Zinnias nor the Sunf...

    Container Garden update

    Container garden
    After getting home from the allotment I still had the urge to garden so I emptied out some depleted containers into the City yard-waste bin and tidied up the parking area plantings. I wish this rain would let up so that I can get some real gardening done!
