Planting completed

I finally got the bamboo in the ground. It doesn't seem to have suffered too much from being left in black garbage bags for almost a week....

A few finishing touches are still required. I'm thinking a Balinese-style statue of some kind, plus some groundcovers or very small shrubs in between the clumps.

That just about completes the planting in our garden now. I can sit back and watch everything grow for a while. :)


Remember the alien eye-stalk? Turns out to be a rather pretty flower spike. They've become so tall that some are having a lie down now. Anyway, they have these small but attractive orangey-pink flowers all along the stalks:

Succulents always amaze me with their flowers.
