This little cyclamen is equally amazing. It blooms almost constantly. I have no idea why the others around it don't put up flowers. I believe they are the same kind of clyclamen acaulis.
I was able to get a bit more clean up done out in the garden today. I limed the grass, the vegetable garden, and anything else that I thought liked a bit of lime. I raked the leaves off the back grass and put them all down along the woodland path. I added some all purpose fertilizer to the vegetable garden and then topped this up with 5 bags of the compost that the Community Compost guys leave as part of the contract. They pick up every 4 weeks taking all my garden clippings and debris, and leave me a bag of compost. They will take wood up to 3 inch diameter. All this for $20.00 per pick up. Now the City is talking about giving us a similar service. Well.. I hope these guys get the contract to do this work. I am very satisfied with how they do my pick ups. I cannot see the city buying enough trucks to manage the work, as efficiently as these guys do it. I would say that 90% of my present garbage that the city takes is all plastics from packaging, stuff that cannot go in the recycle bin, so I am already sorting my garbage as these proposals specify.
