Perfect sunny winter weather here in Brisbane made it a great weekend for pottering about in the garden. On Friday afternoon, I braved a plant nursery with all six kids and bought each of the five bigger ones their own plant-pot and gave them free run in the seedling section. Two hours later, we left with herbs and chillies for the boys and pretty flowers for the girls. They had a fantastic time potting them up and have been giving them plenty of love and attention since. If plants grow better having been sung to, stroked, watered every five minutes, and moved around the deck, I will be able to tell you! We will have to work out a plan to keep the possums away - obviously our local resident has a love of spicy foods as the chilli was just about chewed through overnight!
These pretty "double Calibrachoa" were my purchase for a new garden bed next to our deck. The tiny flowers are just exquisite.
Hope you have had a great weekend too.
