Six on Saturday – Slow Spring Wonders

It has been a little blustery the last few days, I have been gardening dodging showers.

Still planting the last of the new fruit trees. I planted two citrus trees, a Lemonade (a mixture between a lemon and lime, good for a natural tangy salad dressing) tree and a Mediterranean Sweet orange tree, to have a fragrant fruiting windbreak to my new rose garden area. I also have a white mulberry tree to plant.

The daffodils are fatter and more impressive after long cold winter

My ‘ lawn’ in the processes of being mowed by the free range bantam chickens. See how low they have been keeping it!
Native hibiscus and eremophila nivea
Grevillea flower Olivacea Yellow attracts the honeyeaters
Avian cherry trees with their fragrant blossoms of snow, my second favourite blossom tree after the tree lucernes.
Salvia grahamii flowers and flowers off and on all year. I must produce more by cutting. This is the only one I have at the moment.
The pink arctotis has started. This particular tough-kin was given to my by an aunt from her garden. It smothers all the weeds in its wake and is a very garden-worthy groundcover.

Happy Gardening! ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ’ž
