Sometimes I forget how much my home has changed, and then I am glad I have kept a record in photos.
Below is my front garden just under a year ago.
And here it is today.
The frangipanes have seasonally lost their leaves and flowers but rest of the plantings are blooming.
The area previously had a large rubber tree which was dug out and the soil renewed. Roots of a rubber tree can affect foundations if directly beside houses.
I love the area now with its lavender, nasturtiums, lemongrass, five spice, and passion fruit behind running beside the house.
Behind this area are now planted paw paws, mandarin, creek sandpaper fig, lemon aspen, corduroy tamarind, rose apple and a banana palm.
Along the outer fence are fast growing palms given by a friend.
