All seems bleak and colourless when you are forced to stay in bed with a bad flu. It has gripped all I know here in the Western Cape and with the weather as miserable as it has been, I did not have a hint of guilt. But the garden has taken a beating and after the hail storm, I though I would have nothing left. I though all would be dull and lifeless but to my surprise, not all was lost (to the weather and the chickens!) I have been able to pick something from the garden and there were some happy blooms longing for someone to take notice ……. !
my new feverfew
Using quince sticks to hold up the granadilla plant – or the other way around! Chasmanthe and Powis Castle surrounds.
Tansy always a useful plant to have in the garden – best pesticide!
So you see, through all the dull rainy and wintery weather, the garden still has a lot of magic!!
Happy gardening xxx
