Just finished planting out kangaroo paws (Anigozanthos) along the top edge of the in-ground water tank - a good spot in full sun which is neither too wet nor too dry.
The two plants in the middle of the photo are Bush Pizzazz (deep magenta flowers) and the plant on the right is Bush Elegance (deep burgundy flowers on a plant that should be slightly smaller in overall size when mature). I also planted a fourth Bush Elegance across the rocky path, just out of view off the top right-hand corner of the photo. The last of this season's sage plants along the edge of the water tank are just about finished, but the compost I put into the holes for the kangaroo paw may give the sage one last flourish.
- I started this blog in 2009 when I became a full-time caregiver. My husband had been diagnosed a few years earlier with primary progressive aphasia. Over the next four years until his death in 2013, we went on a journey of discovery about this rare condition. My blog is about what I learned, how we both coped and how the journey deepened our love and appreciation of each other. Allen’s journey is over, but mine goes on.
