Then and now

Why no blogging? Not so much to talk about in the hot dregs of an Adelaide summer!

The roses are setting up to rebloom. This was Sharifa Asma (David Austin) two days ago...

And here she was today with a makeshift sun-hat for the 41c heat (that's over 100f, for the overseas readers) :)

Behind you can see the cardboard box I popped over Radio Times. I also had buckets and old plastic plant pots over individual new plants, or about-to-bloom plants, and a big sheet of shade cloth over a newly planted section of the front garden. The things we gardeners do to protect our precious plants! Let's just not talk about the water bill...
