While we've been busy building the garage and organising the commencement of the
building of the house, the garden has managed to survive the drought with just a few casualties.
This pretty little blue plant (which I'm told is an isotoma axillaris) popped up voluntarily
in a heap of gravel at the back of the garden. It had never had any water,
and found it's way up through several planks of wood.
In the meantime the beautiful creeper which grows over the shed
at the end of the drive is changing into its autumn tones
And five days later it's a glowing magnificent blaze
And among the jungle of the grass bed this tiny little toadstool grew,
and stayed, for almost a week!
