Late November in the garden...

 Now that so much in the garden has  either dropped or collapsed in all the rain  this month.  Eucalptus camphora  or the mountain swamp gum is the stand out ! It's grown to quite a good size , considering that it froze to the ground the first year I planted it.

With some rain stoppage  in the day . I got out and lifted all the cement steps. They seem to sink down and disappear .  Probably not very level , but a start. And a bit of a clearing of some of the ugliest mess. The rest I'll leave for the worms. 

Another job …clearing the path .  

It took some aggressive chopping and pulling , but I can walk though without getting slapped in the face with cold wet foliage.

  1. Aggressive chopping and pulling...good for you for getting it done. I've managed to avoid all but the stuff along the drive that was attacking cars trying to reach us.

  2. That eucalyptus is beautiful! I hope mine take off next year. Good for you, tackling that chopping and pulling. Sometimes we gardeners have to be merciless. I have lots of edits I'm procrastinating on.
