Unless I blinked at the wrong time and missed it, the sun did not come out today. It was a grey and somewhat cold day by local standards. It's nothing remotely comparable to the current weather on the east coast of the USA, but here too my Algarve garden is still in winter mode. Weeds are everywhere and the grass is looking bad.
Orange is the brightest colour as there are oranges on the tree and others on the grass, when the wind blows them down. Flowers are not plentiful. The yellow orchids have not done well this year.
It seems to me that I have to rethink my planting if I want to have a reasonable amount of blooms all over my front garden all year round. It's time to plant lavenders and rosemary along the side wall too, where I have some bare patches at the moment. By the gate I don't have that problem. It's looking good.
Finally, this lobster plant will not be banished to containers on the back patio anymore. It does tend to spread madly but when that happens I'll just pull out the excess, which is not difficult.
So, there you have it - I have formulated a plan. As soon as it's warm enough for me, I'm making some changes.
I am looking forward to showing you some new (to my garden) tulips and freesias next Bloom Day.
