How does my Garden Grow?

I've been tagged by Fliss from Udder.
So these are some shots of my poor thirsty greenery. Compared to her LUSH garden, mine is positively arid. I can't remember when Melbourne last had rain... 1 day in early Dec. I think.
And those 40+ degree days are only good for cactus and succulents.

So pass the bucket, it's time to empty the bath water onto the orchids. Melbournians know all about "Bucket back"
I tag Jodie, Allison, and Sally. Show us "How does your garden grow"
I know there will be some interesting pics if these bloggers want to play.(But if not, I'll use my imagination.)


  1. ooh thanks for the tag, I have just come in from bucketing the washing machine water around the garden. I'll post a pic of the very glamourous set-up we use.
    No more washinfg today - I'll do it tomorrow. Thanks for thinking of me, this ones fun!

  2. Such a cute garden!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful space!

  3. Hey Liz,
    Thanks for playing along...I love your garden it has so much character... we need to send you some of our rain. Its hard to imagine that you bucket while we are soaking in it here, such strange seasons in one country! Great idea with the sink!

  4. All my complaining about the lack of rain in Melbourne, and the tiring effort to keep our plants alive must have been noted. We are having a lovely rainy day, and the earth and I are saying thankyou!
