I'm beginning to ache all over and I suspect I'll be spending some quality time with my ice pack tonight, but I got heaps of planting done today. I've been out there most of the day, in spite of the 60kmh winds and a few showers.
I'm nowhere near finished, but here are a few pics anyway.
That's better! A much nicer view as you walk through from the front door:
I tried to get a photo of the view from the dining room window, but the camera kept focusing on the blinds. Next time, switch to manual focus, dummy!
The table and chairs had a brief outing in the sunshine, but thanks to the foul weather, they're back under cover for now:
This section of the planter box is done. At least as far as plants go:
I love how this area at the side is shaping up:
The back is mostly done. A few more things to go in, but it's looking good:
Tiger grass, Lomandra, Acoris:
A couple of yuccas, an agave and some echeverias. I may plant out the cacti too. Might need tongs for that job...
A few close-ups. Tiger grass:
And I've adopted a bonsai, a gift from my Mum. A gorgeous Nandina and (I think) blue sedge:
I'm still figuring out exactly what to put in the back corner and how to arrange it all. That might be a job for next weekend.
All I want now is a fine and warm weekend so we can spend some time enjoying our new outdoor space. Please?
