A vlog, finally!
Arif and I attacked the frangipani patch where all the parakeets and the birds come to feed. That has always been the most difficult patch to grow things in I think because it is the windiest and coldest part of the garden. The frangipani survives, but it certainly does not thrive as the one in the front garden. This is probably because the poor old lady was transported from the old house and the old gardener chopped it’s roots very close to the trunk.
Anyway, that’s not the story here, it is that I wanted to clean up the patch as it was getting full of bird seed, shells, date stones and other rubbish the birds leave behind once they’ve fed. I wanted to find a way to make that particular spot easier to maintain and clean as well as make that area the focal point that is very much needed there. That and re-design the space, it was a sore area to my eyes and I think it was high time I actually did something about it.
Apart from that, I wanted to transpose some cactii from shallow pots, to the ground, I think they were almost pot-bound and needed the freedom to grow. I hope they will.
I hope you enjoy the vlog, it was shot on my mobile phone and edited with iMovie.
