In November and December it rained on and off, sometimes very hard, though never as much as on the first of November, when we had flash floods in the Algarve. As a result, my back patio is covered in green, slippery moss and the front garden is very green. There are lots of weeds but very few blooms.
If I let it, this lobster plant will take over the space left by the lavender that was removed last month.
This lavender needs cutting back or I might lose it completely, too.
This lavender is growing through the fence. It is the longest surviving lavender in my garden.
The rosemary is also brightening up the area by the gate.
And here is that plant that keeps giving (Christina asked, but I can't remember its name, sorry).
There are still some roses.
The twigs may give you an idea of the amount of work to be done asap.
Actually, as I end this post, I realise that my photos contradict my initial statement about there not being many blooms this month.
I am joining May Dreams Gardens late as has become my habit lately. If you haven't been there, have a look now.
See you next month!
