While the iron’s hot (continued).

It took a few days, but the bed is done now, and I am quite happy with the result.

Finished at last.

Finished at last.

One thing that did happen when the carport went up, was that the bed became a lot drier than before, because it was now in rain shadow, which meant I had to rethink the planting, hence the pelargoniums. When the carport first went up I thought, great, afternoon shade in summer, I’ll plant vegies in it, but the lack of rain outweighed the shade provided. A good thing about drought has been the opportunity to completely rework existing beds if enough plants have died. I know of a lady who simply bulldozes and starts again each drought.

All I need now is a row of Bluebush along the top of the bed and it will look great.
