Petunias blooming, garden replanted

Now that spring is definitely in the air, it’s been time to get out into the garden and plant some spring/summer seedlings. The days have been a little warmer and also the evenings but we never experience anything too cold here in Brisbane….it’s a sub-tropical climate. I planted petunias in late autumn, and they were a bit sluggish but now with some warmth they’re flowering away with an incredible deep purple shade in double blooms…so spectacular. Replanting today, in the main veggie/herb garden should see some cucumbers, tomatoes, and zucchinis for summer as well as a few lettuce again. I’ve sown seeds from the old basil, and put in little radish and borage seeds. Brand new marigolds will have to be planted as the old ones are coming to an end. It’s marvellous to get out into the garden on a pleasant sunny day, and enjoy a bit of physical labour. The bees are happy about the garden too, and have been seen on all the flowering plants, so I’m happy about that….always good to see bees and other insects. Things generally manage to balance themselves out with pests being eaten by other insects and birds. Taken a few pics for your enjoyment.

Let me know what you think.
