Organic Flower Corner

My garden was so bleak when I brought my house six months ago.

Now this is what I look down at from my bedroom window.

And this is now the entrance to my house, lavender, nasturtiums, frangipane, aloe vera, lemongrass and passion fruit.

We have water restrictions so have mulched the area heavily with organic lucerne mulch.

The nasturtiums and lavender seem to thrive in the dry soil but for fruit the passion fruit requires water.

I just love the beauty of these frangipane flowers. They fill me with joy each time I look out my window.
