Default Garden Fever

Anyone else got that Autumn Garden Fever, where you suddenly discover all the
stuff you need to do in your garden, and actually start doing it?

I think it's the beautiful weather we're having here today. Went to the
Australian Plants Society Grevillea Group's Autumn Plant Sale at Mt Annan
yesterday and found quite a few plants from my Wanted List. All the ones that
had beds prepared have now been planted -- oddly enough, that's most of them!

Hmmm so that's what it's called? :-)
At work we are pretty much trying to get in control of the sudden flickweed
explosion that seems to have occured in the past 2 weeks. Also add to that
the abundance of pitchforks growing.
Around the house been doing a little. 2 recent operations saw me indoors
laying on the lounge watching TV during a couple of weekends while the g/f
spent that time in the Garden. She loves it :-) Pity I'm back at work now.
Seems here on the Mid North Coast the still quite warm weather and some good
rain in the past month or 2 has meant stuff has not yet slowed in growing.
Still waiting for the ornamental peach out the back to lose all it's leaves
so I can prune it down REAL hard. While I'm at it the White cedar out the
front will be coming down too. I hope anyway.

I know exactly what you mean!! There's weeds to get rid of, mulch to
buy - areas that have been sitting there all summer now need to get
some colour into them.

I am on an acre west of Brisbane and it seems like a never ending
job!! Though I don't help the situation by getting onto the garden
addresses and buying 50 bulbs - damn the Internet
