Some words from an Australian poet seemed very fitting:
"The glory of a larger sky
On slopes of hills sublime.
That speak with God and morning highAbove the ways of Time!"
(from 'Orara' by Henry Kendall)
As I wandered around my garden today I was so happy to see my dwarf kangaroo paw hybrid - Anigozanthus ‘Bush Ranger’ flowering. It's a delight to see the 'paw' opening and those tiny six-petalled blooms popping out.
I'm also really enjoying my new orchid as it grows and blooms. I've not had much experience at all growing orchids but after potting up this little one it has just taken off beautifully!
