2011 How Does Our Garden Grow?

Here's what our class garden looks like after 6 weeks of neglect.

Actually, it's been growing really well over the holidays. The rain last weekend certainly helped.

The sweet peas have almost finished flowering and are starting to die back. There are lots of sweet pea pods so I hope we can collect seeds to plant again at the end of the year.

The swan plant has lots of flowers and 'swan' seed pods on it, too. There are a few monarch butterflies around as well.

The olive tree has a bit of a lean and needs staking. There are, however, small olives starting to appear.

The geraniums and impatiens are colourful and should continue to flower for a while longer yet.

There are quite a few weeds coming through so it looks like some volunteers will have a job to do on the first day back.

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon - and good luck to all our last year's Year 8s for your first day at high school.
