End of Winter

It's been too long.  It's the second last day of winter. It was especially cold this winter. And there is a chance we could go back into a drought. The plants, as they have the last few years, have no idea what they're supposed to be doing. There have been roses refusing to die down. It's just one of those months, I guess.

What goes on now in your garden? This morning, I was trimming back.  An Eremophila and grevillea look a bit sick so instead of giving completely up on them, I decided to chop them back. Spring is coming so let's hope it brings some rain which will be fabulous for our plants. I planted some potatoes the other day - I hope I get a bumper crop this year! I can't get over this weather - quite beautiful!
