the start of spring
The garden's grown a lot. Partly because of the rain and partly because I am (finally??????) getting more knowing about what I want and where I want it. So there is less moving around. Or maybe I'm just getting more accepting that perfection really is impossible and nothing looks great all the time.
Everybody's happy about the rain - except, of course, people adversely affected by flooding. I just hope the plants in my garden don't get too soft and expect it to go on forever. When it gets hot and dry again they will be expected to dig down deep with their roots away from the heat and towards the moisture. All they can expect from me will be a nice mulch blanket, appreciation and encouragement. But no watering.
For friends who want to know when my garden will on TV: it will be on Gardening Australia on Sept. 18 at 6.30pm and repeated on Sept. 19 at 1pm. If you miss it, or for people in other countries, you can see it on the Gardening Australia website.
