What has happened since October in the shade house

In October, as a part of Becky Kinda Squares, I wrote about propagating Begonias from leaf cuttings. I have been meaning to do a follow-up for a while now.

Here are the results so far. Some leaves have bigger shoots. These are ready to be lifted from the tray and potted up. All the bright green dots to the left and rear are new growth from the leaves. The only one to be slow to start is the one front left. The leaf of this variety is a bit hairier than others but the leaf hasn’t rotted away so anything may happen soon. The leaves at the far back, Emerald Ripples Peperomi, have almost gone but shoots are appearing still.

Things are going quite well for this leaf with two established leaves and two bursting forth.

The big rain arrived

For Jez’s Water Water Everywhere

The rain started a week ago and gradually built from a steady few mls every day until yesterday and last night where it rained continuously. This morning the rain gauge recorded 116mls that’s around 4.5 inches. There is water everywhere, the rain came in about one meter under the verandahs, water is still rushing down the gullies and flowing over the ground in places.

Importantly, water is flowing into the house dam as well as out the overflow. This is the water I use for the garden and outside of the house.

Travel Challenge day 9

I was nominated by my friend Judy Dykstra-Brown to post one favorite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to nominate someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures, and 10 nominations. Let’s see if I can make it to the end of ten days, but for now I nominate Nicole

Post wherever you wish but link to me so I know you have. If you are not interested, that’s OK
