We've been having some fabulous weather here for about a week now, warm sunshine, cool breezes, blue skies with puffs and streaks of clouds.
So of course I've been out and about instead of loitering by the screen here.
It's very tiring standing around at bus stops just to get somewhere, but when that somewhere is a nursery and I'm buying seedlings, it's worth it.
I got home from the expedition, watered the seedlings in their little tray, then fell asleep on the couch.
I've just finished planting them out....
Here's a closer look...
A couple of them already have tiny flower buds...
It swayed in the breeze just as I had it in focus.
and what did I plant?
Tiny little seaside daises. These do very well in Adelaide, I see them everywhere, they'll spread about 30 cm each plant and probably 20-30cm high. The bushes have pink and white daisies at the same time, I don't remember if they start pink and mature to white or the other way around.
Not that it matters, the bushes are beautiful.
I also asked at the nursery when they get their bulbs in so I can plan to shop then, the lovely assistant said Easter is a good time to plan for, so I've marked my diary.
Later this week, I'll be going to the library for a book on bulbs to find out what does well here in Adelaide. Probably everything, but I want to plant something other than daffodils.
