Sunday Selections # 282
Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week once again, I have garden photos for you. Not "my" garden, but the main garden in front of "my" particular block of flats.
It's that darker one at the back of the picture. All the smaller bushes in front of it were ankle to knee height the last time I wandered over there. P has planted so many things in this large section, from the fence to the path at the edge of the lawn which fronts my flat. And everything she puts in there, thrives.
there are many of these pretty little native violets throughout her section.
and an orange Abutilon right where she can see it from her kitchen window.
it's a new plant, certainly wasn't there last summer.
probably planted at the beginning of autumn and as you can see, thriving with three flowers already.
It's about 50cm high, just a baby.
P's rosemary bush, planted three years ago and only 8 inches tall then, is now taller than I am!
meanwhile -sigh- this is the patch right beside the driveway and footpath, at the end of the path that leads from my front porch. There is one spindly rosebush. There used to also be two pink daisies and a couple of geraniums, all of which recently mysteriously died and several small things I planted in there which mysteriously disappeared.
this is the front corner of that empty patch. I had 14 large daffodils planted in there :(
it can stay empty, I'm not putting anything else in there.
