        View from the lane ...

        The Almond on the left and Oleander on the right that were cut back in September, another Oleander in background. Tall Geraniums dying off in border and Yukkas doing well and hope they bloom next year. Billbergia nutans in all wall planters will pick up when weather cools. We have dotted Aloe Vera in the borders.

                I might have posted some of these before, I've kind of lost track a bit.

                  I like that a lot, thanks @Perki. :) Such a shame though, it would be a non starter here. I have the shade but there's no such thing as moist/wet soil with sandy loam.

                    Plants in pots get fed sort of regularly; flowerbeds get mulched with homemade compost and the odd handful of blood, fish and bone.

                          I do feed the containers in summer and feed the roses, the rest just as they are.
