March 2006 - One

After dealing with the first flush of weeds which came through after the new
garden beds were established, I mulched the whole area,
and began planting

The new beds look a bit stark at the moment, but I keep reminding myself
that the original area, at the bottom right of this photo, was only planted
a couple of years ago

This area has grown well, and the birds constantly feed on the grevilleas
and other nectar offering plants

When I bought this prostrate acacia I was told I should trim it right back.
I just couldn't bring myself to do it, but it's travelled so far along the rock faces
that I may trim it back one branch per year!

As you can see - it quite happy sprawling all over the place
