Good Friday in the Garden 29th March 2013

After minor surgery yesterday left me with 1 stitch in my nose and 10 more in my right shoulder, the threat of rain and Good Friday holiday traffic gave me little choice but to spend today at home and snap around in the garden. One advantage this week is, I don't have to spend hours working out the plant names.
So here's what's happening in our garden in our part of the world on this Good Friday.
