So you’ll never guess what I got for Mother’s Day… a new native garden outside my window!
This was the previous outlook from my bedroom window:
A little bleak, no? More:
You can see that the bricks are all coming up from the roots of that pigawful tree.
And now! Well, it might not look all that much yet, the plants being small, but they’ll grow.
Isn’t it going to be nice? We’ll get a bigger tray for the birdbath, of course. And we’re waiting on a shipment from Mulchnet. And one day we’ll repaint the house exterior. (One day.)
A few individual plants: Kunzea
I forget the name and the tag didn’t come home with us – anyone?
And there are three kangaroo paws, too.
The border is still just your bog standard annuals from Bunnings. (We might put in native herbs later.) I like the pansies.
We’ve also pulled up the lawn out the back, and we have native groundcover to put in. Apparently it grows actual taproots, so you don’t have to water it at all after the first season.
The plants are all from Lullfitz.
