We are in another 6 weeks of lockdown here in Melbourne – supposedly due to lift on 13th September. At least the winter bulbs have started flowering, so there is some positivity in the air.
It’s hard to find the motivation to do any gardening at all, with the weather being a cold, rainy, windy, and generally unpredictable. I use the Winter months to do my maintenance work – tidy the potting shed, repair trellises, weed and mulch. (so not much gets done). This year, I’m hoping to finish painting the side fence in the front yard – it’s only been half painted for the last 5 years!. Wish me luck.
