Gardening!!

I love it!!

We spent the weekend gardening <3

On Friday, we went to Bel's house to pick up a frangipani tree she kindly let us take n relocate and we put it the front and it looks great! Ill upload pics tomorrow...

Then, we planted olive trees all the wall down the side of the drive, I'm gonna keep them small and trim =)

Also bought 3 x White Tiger 'Dietes' [one of my very favourite plants ever] and split them up into 9 clumps and planted them between our Cotton wood hibiscus that we have along the back fence over looking the park.

Either side of out back yard we also have Olive trees, and in between them I planted small [at the moment] individual Purple Fountain grass, I love contrasting colours with planting, and I like to stick to 3 or 4 plants in one 'garden'

I'll do before and after pics. ATM it looks a little sparse as all the plants are new, and we pulled out these hideous overgrown things, so now the garden looks bare!!! LOL

Who else LOVES/LIVES to garden???

I LOVE gardening too!! I would love it even more if the grubs and spiders will leave my plants alone. They are my major dislike pale

Have you had the olive trees for long? Just that when we moved in to this place there was 1 olive tree and it had spread. It was very difficult to get rid off cos the birds kept spreading the seeds and they grow like weeds. Might be different in WA though.

Can't wait to see some garden pics! At the moment we have no yard so I love looking at other people's yards to get ideas Very Happy

I don't think you CAN kill agaves Wink

A friend of mine used to think they were called 'garbos' and thought it was a terrible name for a plant. I explained the real name Wink
