A busy day in the garden

Today I had a pretty busy day in the garden, both front and back. In the front yard I decided it was time to cut back my gaura - they had become extremely large and I needed to trim them back before spring and they went from this:

To this:

I also decided that I wanted to have some potted colour around the place, so I planted some in some pots that I'd previously bought from an op shop and an old wok that I had that had seen better days:

I then planted some seeds - 6 Tommy Toes Tomatoes, 6 Beefsteak Tomatoes, 12 Roma Tomatoes and 12 sweet corn and put them in the green house:

I also bought three new natives for my front yard today - through my use of weed killer I've randomly killed a few plants so I bought 3 new natives today - Candles/banksia ground covers:

Today I also spent 3 hrs levelling out the ground for the sleepers in my backyard for the framework of garden and paths - I wont put any photos up until the job is finished tomorrow


  1. Looking great Lisa!
    I garden as well yesterday… it.
    Keep posting I’m enjoying watching the progress of your vegies and yard. :)

  2. Thanks Michelle - I'm loving spending time out in the garden and the weather is perfect for it at the moment - so nice to have some days with sunshine and no rain! :D
