This year (so far) nothing has died. Everything has remained kind of green but the flower situation is dire. I have given up expecting much in the shape of non-scorched roses until March...
A few plants are still doing well though.
|Petunias, Valiantly Fighting On|
These guys seem to love summer.
|Pretty Frilly Nanna Succulent|
|Cool, Sculptural Nanna Succulent|
When I first moved to The Farm I turned my nose up at succulents... I don't anymore. They have a funky Nanna style that I adore. And they are survivors. Got to love a garden survivor by mid February.
Anyway - soon it will cool down a bit and my garden will be able to do more than just survive. I can't wait.
In other Farm news - I have caught 8 mice so far in my War on Rodents. I am hoping that the rest will wave the white flag and make a strategic retreat back to the great outdoors, but I have left the traps set. I have seen enough war movies to know there is always a few foolhardy rebels who remain after a defeat.
I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday. My aim is to get through the day without any conversations with Telstra. Some of my experiences on the phone yesterday could have doubled for Monty Python sketches....
