The final arrival of spring weather brought gardeners out in their droves!
I had the piles of stones removed from the garden beds sitting their since last summer but finally decided on what to do with them.
So I spent Saturday shovelling stones into the corner and replanting the succulents I had acquired over the year.
I had also bought 2 garden beds and assembled one last summer, but not filled it as I didn't want to have to move it filled with soil. So I went to assemble the 2nd one and found they had not included the screws and bolts required.
I was suffering a chest infection ? bronchitis, so spent Saturday in bed, but feeling fine in Sunday so got some screws that worked, as well as bought some soil and plants.
I wanted to have vegies in the beds and herbs in pots as well as a Trixie (mini) nectarine tree like we had at Footscray. I want to fill the garden bed so bought some Japanese Wind Flower, some Cosmos and some nasturtiums.
I also bought some Sugar cane mulch.
Happy with the result, and they should all be established before I go away at end of month

|The two beds set at accessible angles. In the bed at back are roses|
You can see the fruit tree in the pot
|Some replanted and new herbs Basil, Rosemary, Coriander, Mint, |
Sage Thyme and in the Blue pot Strawberries

The back of the veggie bed has snap peas, so they should grow up and partly cover the water tank, as will the fruit tree
