Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
Today we are back in my garden:
where Angel likes to keep watch, you can see his fur has almost completely grown back.
Ooh! What's that?
this last marigold is well and truly dead
but I have rediscovered this plant growing in between the donkey's tails. I'd completely forgotten it was there, haven't seen it in months.
there are fallen leaves caught in almost everything.
all those green spears are freesias popping up by the dozen where there was just bare earth last week.
my rhubarb is beginning to look alive at last, after four years of sulking in a pot, I finally gave in and planted it in the ground where it wanted to be this whole time.
all of my jades have baby flower buds, in a few weeks they will be starry pink flowers
this is the biggest of the jades, about 75cm tall now, several others are almost as large,
in a year or two I'll have the hedge I planned.
my one remaining coprosma is showing signs of life and better colour. I decided to move the other, smaller one and discovered the roots were all wound up in a tiny tight ball, I loosened them and trimmed, but the plant died anyway. I thought it would. I'm hopeful this remaining one will grow taller finally.
more fallen leaves, speckled this time.
backlit by the lowering sun, these leaves on my Christmas plums still look dark purple from the sunny side.
some of the smaller leaves are brighter orange and red
others green and gold, with touches of orange.
I wonder who lives in here? Mr Redback? Mr Garden Spider? I won't knock on his door, best to leave him sleeping.
and here is Cap'n Jack, resplendent in his new coat of paint.
