It was another beautiful pre-work morning…
So I chose fine-leaved creeping boobialla and headed out into the neighbourhood.
I was accompanied by a neighbour who spends a lot of time on the street and he talked a lot about what he thinks needs to happen about the place. I kept planting. He appreciates the plants, though he has a lot of grievances. I guess we both think things could go better and we have different ways of trying to achieve improvement!
I weeded out some of these patches, as it looks to me as though the plants that have died have been lost to poison and not natural causes. Those that were larger and further from the kerb have mostly made it. The Olearias are bushing out.
My earlier boobialla plantings are mostly doing well.
Some of the rhagodias look good too. I gave this one some company.
It’s pleasing to see the places where my friends and I have been at work on this project for longer and there is now a leafy understorey. The E Scoparias we have planted have all lived thus far too!
Home again after some weeding and litter removal.
I even scored some local lemons on my way home. Extra good!
