It’s time for another visit to the jungle-in-waiting known as the Gardens of Chiconia.
I say jungle because it’s growing like crazy, especially the bits you’d really rather not, such as the grass and weeds everywhere… On the upside, everything else is making good progress too, and the lemon tree, which seemed to be at the point of death, is staging a comeback.
A few images to entertain you.
Many of you will remember that mango tree from when it was a small sprout, barely knee high on me and looking a bit shaky in its first few months. Now, I think we’ll have to get it into the ground soon or it’ll burst its pot. Oh, and that rudely shaped object is the first set fruit from the Monstera deliciosa. The plant/tree/shrub/whatever is now covered in flowers, so we can expect a spot of fruit-salad flavoured bounty in a year or two. That’s apparently how long the fruit takes to ripen. I won’t be holding my breath…
Tomorrow I should have more stitchery to share.
