Urgent attention required....

in the Garden;

Lavender "Sidony" the last of its flowers;

Tangles to be sorted out;

Replenish water in Bromeliad cups;

Clean up herb garden;

Clean and fill birdbath;

Prune spend flowers of Coleus;

Prune and cut spend flowers on Roses;

Pretty seedhead of a grass, I prune it later, usually I leave the grasses even when they look a bit worn and torn and change to a straw colour.

Remove Palm fronds; (my favourite job.)

Sweeping for ever and ever! And much more!
Never mind;

Have a nice day!

I forgot to leave a comment here while visiting your SkyWatch post. It is currently 12 degrees, and I have no to do list for my garden. Enjoy working through your list! I enjoyed looking at your pics, too.

Phew! You will need a lie down after all that.
I'm getting a taste of summer from your pictures!

Mo said...

I feel the same in our garden right now, so much to do, and so little time. I hope you have time to relax again soon.

Darla said...

Oh but how lovely it will be when all the attention is given to the garden!!

At least we are never bored! Always a choice of something to do. I enjoyed seeing your summertime pics... a change of view for me.

Enjoyed your lovely post and all those great photos. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving such warm comments. Your welcome home was appreciated more than I can put into words. I have enjoyed popping in and catching up. Yes, I wanted to tuck Monty under my arm and take him home with me. I love being around dogs and I bet your Billy is a cutie pie. One day I think we will be welcoming a four-legged friend into our home. Have a great week.

Oh ja, uns Gärtnern wird es wohl nie langweilig. Es gibt immer was zu tun, manchmal leider nicht nur Lieblingsbeschäftigungen. ;-)
Mir juckt es inzwischen wieder gehörig in den Fingern, aber leider, leider wird noch eine Weile dauern bis man sich bei uns wieder draußen beschäftigen kann.

Hallo Titania,
es sieht aus als hättest du viel Arbeit im Garten. Aber er ist ja doch noch sehr grün. Ich habe bei Arija gelesen, dass es sehr trocken ist und ihr Garten sehr schlimm aussieht.
Grüsse Hartmut

Sorry I had to delete my comment as I called you with a wrong name
:(((( Oh my God, that's really bad!
What I wanted to say was this:

The lavender picture is so great! What a beautiful photo!
Yes, gardens need a lot of attention, I know that since my mother has a garden, too, and I have the impression that gardening is more than a hobby, it's real hard work and constant attention.
But beautiful gardens are - heaven!
Have a nice day Titania!

Hallo Titania,

Wenn du Interesse hast dann lass es mich wissen, die Post findet Australien bestimmt.
Grüss Hartmut

Irgendwie stecke ich noch in einer Art Winterschlaf und deshalb beneide ich dich im Moment nicht um deine vielen Aufgaben die du in deinem Garten erledigen musst/kannst/darfst/sollst !! Winter hat doch manchmal auch einen kleinen Vorteil ;-) !
Sei ganz lieb gegrüsst,

Hallo Titania

O wie ich mich freue bis der Lavendel hier wieder blüht! Da hast Du viel Arbeit, im Garten sieht man immer noch etwas und noch etwas, was man noch tun könnte.

Herzlichen Dank für Deine interessanten Einblicke in Deinen schönen und grossen Garten.
Liebe Grüsse

Hi Titania, how beautiful your garden is, even though you see jobs that need done in it. Don't work too hard! :-)

How lovely to see sunshine and flowers. I like it when people share their bits that need "urgent attention" - it makes the garden seem more real.

Thank you for allowing me to take a stroll around in your beautiful garden.

There is always plenty of work to do in maintaining a fabulous garden like yours, but oh what a payoff!

Once again thank you for sharing.

Beautiful! Even with all that urgency.

Always so much to do! Perhaps you'd enjoy a few weeks of our snow so that you'd be forced to take a break from gardening, as we are :) But only a few weeks, right? Our cold and snowy weather goes on much too long!
I love seeing all the garden chores you have waiting, and wish I could come and help you do them dear Trudi :)
