Early September Garden Photos, 2008

Lavender buzzing with bees

Chooks busy scratching

Lemons

Mandarines

Fixing our leach drain system (it was overgrown with tree roots) really boosted the citrus this year. We haven’t had to water them at all; the grey water has kept them permanently irrigated.

Loquats

Apricots

Cherry? This didn’t fruit last year, so I dunno. Great cut blossoms though.

Wattle

I don’t water any of the above plants. Chook manure brew once a year. 😉

Compare these shots with those taken around this time last year.

August rainfall makes a huge difference; we’ve barely had any this year.

  1. oooh how I envy your fruit trees. Ours are still somewhat small in size and bearing. They are also usually attacked by the possums….
    You have (hopefully) prompted me to get out and photgraph our garden also. Cheers.
