May 2012 Garden New's

This month our garden featured on Channel 10s ‘Totally Wild’, they did a great job and we were very pleased with the segment.
You too can see it on this link: ,we are on after the lizards.
This month we had the Sunshine Coast fern and Foliage Society visit the garden and then we had a fairly long trip to give a presentation to the Kilcoy Garden Club, they were most hospitable as most country people are and offered us lunch before we left. We just got home in time to watch our garden feature on ‘Totally Wild’.

                                                                    Haemanthus alba
                                                                   Curly Poinsettisa
                                                              Mussaenda 'Dona Luz'
We now have a bit of a break until the next garden visit so I have started some serious fruit tree pruning and have stripped a couple of gardens to start afresh.

Gardening is all about renewal and change and I have been doing quite a bit of that this month with room made for lots of new plants.
I have brought in trailer loads of organic soil, mushi compost and crusher dust to do all the jobs that need doing.
Our first Grand-Daughter turned three and we gave her a very special Birthday, we will soon have three Grand-Daughters and one Grand-Son, they have really changed our lives for the better.
Friday is our day off gardening as we look after the Grand-Children this day and we find it more tiring than if we had worked all day in the garden.
How did I ever find time to go to work?
