It’s been 7 months since we’ve started the garden. My blog post then showed off our 5 new native plants. Since then, we have planted a few more plants, put potted plants in the ground, expanded our garden beds and those natives we planted in the beginning have really grown!
I took a series of photos that showed the garden from the left to the right fence.
The left side of the garden is the entertaining area. It is also Richard’s favourite part of the garden as he has created an area called “Fern Gully” along the fence. Plants there are from the pre-flowering era e.g. ferns and cycad.
I recently planted bell pepper seeds and you can see them sprouting near the rock. The native plants are also doing well and are at a decent height now. I especially love the trees in the last photo. Can’t wait for them to grow to their full height!
This recycled bird bath that Richard “made” a few weeks ago has really grown on me. It’s an upside down metal garbage bin. I think it suits both our personal styles and works well in our natural bush garden that we are creating.
Looks like we are not getting rid of the big clothesline in our courtyard. The native birds around here are regularly sitting on it every morning and evening. We leave them bird seeds and bread with honey and they love it! And we love watching them too.
