Chop chop in the Garden.....

In the garden is a great time to get in and clean up as 
every thing slows down and I get a chance to do some maintenance.

I have been out in the vege garden getting the last of the summer veges out and planing the winter ones.

Over Summer the glass house gets used as a storage area, so I had to get in and give it a good clean out and weed.
It is now ready to grow tomatoes and lettuce in over winter and raise seedlings.

From the vege garden I moved into the back garden..
Looking very over grown out here, so I decided to get in and do some pruning.

Wow I may have got a little carried away..hahaha
The budlia I had out here is chopped right back as was a big bush rose.
The Mulberry tree got a trim  as well. The sun will be able to get in here now over winter and by Spring everything will be grown back.

The front garden got a good hair cut and mulching as well.

It is so dry at the moment, I cut down two trees as well out here as they are taking all the moisture out of the gardens.

I have planted lots of  low maintenance plants in here now as well as climbing roses on the fence.
Robbie trimmed all the hedges for me as well.

The garden is all ready for winter now...

How is all your gardens going????


  1. Love your garden especially the green house with the crimson glory vine clambering over. ...yes the gardens are starting to look a little sad without my lovely roses flowering in our garden. Tiny herb patch here is going well and green.
    This is my addition to the roses when we moved here I November. Love the garden :)

    1. Thanks Alexa, I love pottering around in my greenhouse on the hot days. I have a few roses left but they are the last of them for a while I think.

  2. Mandy, it is certainly dry eh? Perhaps we will get a little rain overnight but I won't hold my breath. I have some brassicas growing but not much else at the moment. It is so dry even some of the weeds are dying off...but that's a good thing ;-)

    1. I know driving into Toowoomba I can't believe how dry it is...
