My New Garden: Progress 5 - Aug to Dec 2006

I haven't up-dated my new garden progress for some time, so please note that this progress is for August to December 2006 - I'll catch up to be current very soon!

There is a great pleasure in working in the soil, apart from the ownership of it. The man who has planted a garden feels that he has done something for the good of the world.
- Charles Dudley Warner, 1870

AUGUST 2006 : Spring hasn't quite stuck her head out yet - very windy and still very cold... not that the Arctotis seem to mind, they've been flowering since the middle of July. The Monkey-tail Cactus has been covered in flowers all Winter long.

October 2006 - the Pachypodium has survived! and started sprouting new heads of leaves.

Can't say the same for the Acacia Umbrella Thorn -
nary a sign of a green bud and I really think I've lost it this Winter...
knew he was too tender, yet I still took the chance of planting him.

Above and below: The lush greenery of November after still some more rain...

December2006 - The Greater Striped Swallows re-built last year's nest
under the ceiling of the garden shed.

Next up-date Jan '07 to Dec '07
