I mentioned here that I need to make some pretty labels for my new plants. I do this because the labels that plants come with are always ugly and horrible (and don’t match each other) and because they have the care instructions on them — I don’t want to leave those outside where possums could make off with them, or the wind could blow them away. I guess I also feel like they are a “welcome to the garden” present to new plants.

I also quickly learnt to be very careful with sticking the contact down good and hard, particularly with all the rain and humidity we’ve had, or the labels start growing mould — for instance:
