Petal Fall

Thursday’s and Friday’s weather wasn’t really anything special for May although we did register our first rainfall of the month with 3.4mm and 2.0mm falling respectively on the two days. Not really enough for us gardeners and with a blustery wind blowing I don’t suspect the dampness penetrated very far down into the soil. The unsettled weather is forecast to persist so it’s likely we’ll get some more rain over the next few days.

Our camellias are shedding their flower petals almost as soon as they open. The path around the plants is covered with pink blossom. We've had just enough rain to sort of glue the petals together so that they aren't blown about too much in the breezy conditions.  The magnolia is suffering the same fate!
