Day 79 of 365 days in the community garden

Bathtime beauty - we are lucky to have several baths at Dig It! and this bath was planted by the students of Royal Oak Primary School with Dusty Miller and Arctotis plants. (We now also have a rogue pumpkin growing through the plants, and a lovely tuft of silverbeet - they must have emerged from the compost that was used to fill the bath.) The students specifically chose Dusty miller and Arctotis because they do well in dry conditions, and our bathtubs are only hand-watered sporadically, so it was a great choice!
