The winter garden

Jonquils are flowering

I have been taking photographs and composing blog posts in my head, but somehow, not making it to my keyboard to actually type these things up! Bad blogger, no biscuit for you!

So, here’s a bunch of garden pictures from mid winter to mildly amuse you. A little background to these shots — it has been incredibly dry here these last couple of months. I think we may have had about 5 mm of rainfall in that time, it’s pathetic. I mentioned a long while ago now that the dirt floor of the chook run was looking very dusty — no rain of note since then.  These photos were taken during that dry patch, and the garden is looking a little withered, and the chook run is hard and compacted.

This last week, however, the heavens have opened up and given us a dose of classic Sydney rain: sideways-in-the-face. Thanks, Sydney! This has caused the usual flooded back yard, and is the reason why we have raised garden beds. I didn’t have a chance to snap a picture of the flooding yet — it was brief this time and the ground soaked it up like a sponge.

So, without further ado, some pictures!

I really love to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment! :)
