A winter walk:

Some glorious winter days have allowed me time in the garden. There is still much to do. I shall share some photos that were taken on our late afternoon walk. The pincushion Hakea is always a delight, an Australian native. The tree dahlias were shooting their heads over the school fence.

    What a treat to see your flowers…i went to a dahlia show in Ohio, USA years ago and was amazed at the variety and difference in sizes,,,all the way from tiny pin cushions up to dinner plate sizes and all kinds of colors and petal configurations. Nature is truly surprising in its diversity.

    Once someone sent me a You Tube (or other) video of fantasy flowers, but they were all actual living flowers. All of them looked like they were designed in Disney World’s studios. I saved it but lost it in a computer crash. Your picture of the Hakea reminded me of that video…I will try to hunt it down and if I find it I shall send you the link. Happy ‘naturing’.

      Thank you Carol Ann, I’d love that! I agree nothing surpasses nature. The intricacies of design are superb, and still fill me with wonder.

      I don’t think it was that your thumb was not green Amanda. They grow down here with no attention at all! Still you have some other amazing plants in the sub tropics that we can’t grow!
