I did deadheading after work. The whole place looks pretty good at the minute, if not as lush as it should by now. There are weird little things, like the everlasting peas not growing as they should, or heading straight through the fence to flower next door. I’m wondering if some netting on the back fence would stop them doing that, while still giving them something to hold on to.
The apple tree looks good for its haircut. I’ve taken off a few sprouts from the trunk and there are going to be more shoots to be removed. We’ll see if I can manage that, but clearly the hard cut didn’t hurt it.
The pink lupin was one of the biggest things to be deadheaded. The leaves are still looking all droopy, so I gave it a good watering to see if that helps. There’s no sign of damage or infestation.
