Wishing all a Happy Easter!
For those who are wondering what on earth that strange looking chocolate animal is, here's a link to show you one of our unique Aussie animals and our native Australian Easter icon.
I'm on a week-long end-of-term break and enjoying every moment. The weather has been fabulous. Bright sunny blue-sky days, albeit getting shorter ... and lovely cool nights. I'm out watering, weeding, feeding and just being in my garden and enjoying every moment. Have I said that already? Oh dear, I think it's called 'end of wet season euphoria!'
Here are some of the delightful sights in my garden right now.
Now ... the flower in the top row is a recent purchase of mine and I'm just jumping for joy that I finally have one. It's the stunning white Ginger ... Hedychium coronarium ... and the perfume emanating from this bloom is simply heavenly. It may even be more divine than the scent of roses ... well that's my opinion anyway.
Middle row shows the fascinating bloom of my Curcuma 'Voodoo Magic' when splashed with sunshine or drenched in shadow. The colour of the inflorescence and the tiny flower are simply beautiful.
The star of my Courtyard Garden right now is shown on the bottom row. My Jasminum officinale is finally showing more than just the occasional flower these days. I think it's enjoying all the sunshine.
The Angelonia angustifolia have started their wonderful display ...
It's a great time of year!
