It's Cherry Blossom Time!

Garden Log 28 Sep 08:

The Stella Cherry is flowering!

Temperatures this week:
Lowest Min -1.4C
Lowest Max 15.6C
Highest Max 32.8C
No Rainfall Recorded

With temperatures rising
many of the plants in the garden are beginning to go to seed.

Many of the greens in this tub are sending up flowering stems.

The Corn Salad (Valerianella locusta) plants are flowering.

The Strawberries in their tank bed...

The Grapes on the back pergola...

and my favourite little Johnny Jump Ups
or Heartsease (Viola tricolor)

Last week I finally managed to plant out
this Lillypilly (Syzygium sp) tree.
It has been living in the shadehouse for many years.
I hope it will be happy out in the garden.

These Five Colour Silverbeets in their pots are growing well.

And volunteer Sunflowers are popping up
around the new wicking beds already!

Speaking of Sunflowers,
Doc wanted to have a go at planting some seeds this year!
I gave him a box and some Giant Sunflower seeds.
Look they have just about all germinated!
Clever Doc!
