The golf estate where we used to live in South Africa
Sowing grass seed
Two months later
The bougainvillaea started to turn pink as the ground temperature heated up
Returned to white now summer is over
Everything is covered in a layer of dust. I will be repotting the cups and tea posts with succulents and moving the existing plants back into the sand pit.
I had intended on really throwing myself into developing the garden over the winter, but I start work on Sunday for the first time in 5 years and I really don't think I'm going to have the time or energy for the big plans and ideas I had in mind. I will attempt to grow some tomatoes and herbs and plant the remaining seeds, but I think it will be more of chuck it all in together and quite literally see what comes up.
In the meantime now the weather has cooled I'm enjoying the evenings outside with the doors open to let some of the cool air into the house.
I am going to have a go at getting some grass seed to grow in this patch, it will cost AED2000/£350 to have turf laid but much less to grow my own grass from seed.
The next few weeks posts for #HDYGG? are from South Africa as I have so many photos to show you, hopefully by the time I've finished with those there will be further development in the garden here, I will have settled down into the new job and the Miracle Gardens will have reopened so I can show case the delights of real gardening in Dubai.
Does anyone know what this is called? It's a new flower that has come out since I've been away.
