black dogs and garden tours
Also this week i was forced to admit to Sherpa that my black dog is well and truly hunkered down.. and has been for some time. I think its been since i first went to the dentist and got told i needed root canal on top of $2500 worth of cavity dealing-with-ness.
I'm ok with my black dog usually. I mean, it's not my favourite thing, but i cope. I hand in essays, i dye yarn (not as diligently mind you), i go to work. and the only way i cope, really, is to pretend it isnt happening. Just get on with it, you know? and while Sherpa needed to know.. because it's starting to effect my uni work and there is mild concern about not finishing this year (which would KILL me) and of course it's his business because.. thats a full-paid job next year i'd be missing if i dont graduate... it kind of sucked to have to admit it. Because now it's out there and i feel worse. the rug has been pulled out from underneath me and i'm sitting here feeling sore and naked. so that kind of sucks.
to distract us from such sombre-ness, i'm going to take you on a tour of the garden. It's nearly a year since the first one, so i thought it was about time.
My own little Floriade: i put in some tulip bulbs months ago and totally forgot what colours i had, so it was a real treat when they finally exploded.
The banksia rose out the front. Gorgeous plant, didnt get great flowers last year because i HAD to prune the thing back (it was totally taking over). now of course the weight of the flowers is pulling it over and i need to wire it a bit.. train it to give some shade (i see myself with a little garden seat having a nice summer reading nook).
Random pink flowered plant that suddenly flowers when one least expects it. I never water it so it must be pretty resilient.
Random blue bush. i should know the name but i dont. all i know is it sheds little white stamen things in my hair when i walk under it, and the bees go nuts for it.
Now blogger is being cranky and refusing more pics. Lets call this part one and i'll show you the back garden another time.
