It is with some relief that I can report that the annual pruning is finished. Now we wait for the sticks to burst forth with flowers and leaves.
At Burnbrae (Blue Mountains garden) the daffodils are in flower. Here at Rose Orchard Haus (Kandos) the bulb shoots are only just now coming through. I am not sure what has caused this delay. The neighbour says the same is happening in her garden. My thinking it's either the drought or the delayed start to winter as we had a very warm June.
At Whistler's Rest (Clandulla) the wattle is now in bloom though I'm not expecting much of a spring display of native flowers because it's super dry there.
