Weekly Photography Challenge: Growth

We are just into the new year, which seems a good time to focus on growth.

Growing things is the whole point of gardening. Growing things to eat is great, but I also love flowers for their own sake.

As for the cactus garden (more of a wilderness at present…), which my eldest son planted as an 11 year old 30 or so years ago, rain at the right time plus lack of management means that the cacti have grown upwards and outwards, obliterating the central pathway that is supposed to allow access for weeding…Since Simon assures me that there are bound to be tiger snakes in there, I think it can wait until winter!
