Open Garden - Plant & Metal Garden Ornament Sales

Winter is just about complete.  Have been trimming a lot of plants that have already begun their Spring growth.  Potting up more succulents and about to make some more cacti cuts ready to pot up in a couple of weeks.  Welding more garden ornaments in readiness for the markets and garden visits.  Aloes have been continually flowering throughout the winter months.  Have still got a lot of different Aloes to flower yet.  Birds are absolutely loving every bit of nectar from the Aloes.  Honeyeaters and Watttlebirds especially.  Over the next few weeks there will be a lot of new growth as the daily temperatures slowly rise.  Birds in the aviary are beginning to go crazy building new nests and having some fun!  Hopefully will see lots of chicks in the Spring.  Whilst it is cold outside, it is so relaxing sitting inside in the living area and gazing through the windows into the aviary watching the finches, canaries and small parrots enjoying life.

Gearing up for the Victorian Open Garden Scheme next month.  So much to do and lots of weeds to try and control.  The rain we have been receiving lately is making that very difficult.

This winter has been quite harsh with frosts and cold weather making their markings on quite a few Aloes and their Winter blooms.  Some buds were damaged and we had not even received any notification of frost weather.  There was no frost on next door neighbour's lawn or on our bird baths.  That is generally how you tell that we have had frost overnight.

Hopefully no more frosts for the year.  I had one night that I did not realise how cold it was going to be until 9.30pm and could not be bothered going out late at night with a torch and shade cloth.  The following morning, the bird baths were frozen and next door's lawn was covered in frost!  Hence received quite a bit of damage.  Should have checked the forecast earlier in the day.
