FLOWER OF THE DAY ❁Billy Buttons (Pycnosorus globosus)
FLOWER OF THE DAY ❁ Frangipani (Plumeria alba)

❁ In Casa Darcey Garden this Week ~ Rainbows, Artichokes, Sweet Verburnum

My days are filled with weeding at the moment. It's amazing how a few weeks of looking over a section can let those little goblins creep in isn't it!? My Sweet Viburnum hedge (Viburnuma Odoratissimum) was hiding a tiny forest of them. With all that early nursing I had to do to establish it, I did provide a very fertile ground which proved irresistible to weeds and stray grass. For those who missed the Facebook posts about it, I had a lot of early winter wind damage to my veggie garden from the southerly storms and winds so I have planted this hedge as a break. It's fast growing, will be high and very thick so it's perfect for the job oh and it has lovely pretty scented flowers too! I know you can tame it to be very formal but I'm keen to let it grow as it pleases with only minor trimming. It will also create a little private section which I'm going to create a table setting of some sort in. 
Vegges we are enjoying at the table right now are Bok Choy, Lettuce, Celery, Spinach, Baby Carrots and French Beans.

my artichoke! so much plant! 
meanings ~ flexibility, calm amidst turmoil, great to assist you in staying on longer paths and with long range goals. 



Rainbow
A rainbow was a blessing to see over my Veggie Garden. 
The new picket fence and gate, we had loads of fun building,
has provided a safe haven for my
Vegetables and Herbs which are planted for culinary, medicinal and magickal uses. 
To capture the sunlight, I've not wasted the fence line
by adding planters of additional herbs.
Pandorea will not only attract bees but eventually form a tunnel to the garden
with the addition on two more arches.
