I would like to say I have cleared the block but no. It is just too hot plus I have to address the issue of getting some wheels. We have taken care of issues with the accountant, the insurance, the bank and tomorrow is going to be dedicated to buying a new car. So as it is over caste I have done a bit more in the garden.
I am planning just what flowers I want compared to what will grow. To my delight I find that Hydrangeas grow over here. I have been doing some work in my neighbours garden. as they both have mobility issues, and there hidden under the weeds was the healthiest bush. There must be a bit of alkaline content in the soil as there is that touch of pink in the flowers.
I always have flowers in my kitchen even if it is only one bloom and these hydrangers take me back to my childhood when we had a hedge of them and my mother would arrange them in vases all over the house.
I now only have a tiny kitchen but I want to have flowers on the bench so these are going into my new garden. The other flower I like is a native that looks rather untidy in the bush,
but would look good under trees if it was tendered. The flower is very sweet but I don't think it would be much good in a vase.
I also see a lot of Agapanthus planted all around the place so they might be an option as well. There seems to be a lot of pink and purple in the flowers that do well, not much white.
