Back Fence Border

Growing ever so slowly, probably because its being watched too closely.

Dutch iris are all blooming like mad, must have appreciated the division.

Society garlic was also divided,straight out of the pot.


looks as though I took this picture of the dog poo, but at the time I didnt notice it!

New spring flowers

Heuchera Rave On Coral Bells.  In a pot with a camellia I dug out of original garden

Dampiera diversifolia, a little West Australian native I have always loved, but struggled to grow with any success, so we will see how it does in this pot with a cordyline

Begonia, also in a pot with a camellia, its a lot more healthy than its bed fellow thats for sure!

Spathyphyllum from Dads original plant, thought it was a little early to send up a flower spike,

Cyclamon on his last flowering legs, but still alive!!

Dendrobium Speciosum, also at the end of its flowers, but they have been so lovely.

Echeveria Perle Von Nuremburg

Brachyscome Brasco Violet next to rock, Cosmos atrosanguineus Chocolate cosmos, & Calibrachoa Apricot Eye, all growing next to a clematis which isnt doing anything.

Brachyscome Lilac Sunrise, 

Alstromeria Eliane, just keeps pumping out the blooms.

Aloe Bush Baby Yellow, same blooms from last month still going strong, osteospermum in the background.

Bacopa Gulliver Violet, gorgeous tough little ground cover, easy to break pieces off & transplant

Scaevola, this one was sold as triple treat.

Salvia Mystic Spires Blue, just very small still but flowering away.

Euphorbia Ascot Rainbow

Lychnis Passion, this one is new to me so not sure how it will go in the summer heat, but am loving the hot pink flowers.

Rhodanthemum African Eyes

Bracteantha Mohave White, This plant would be twice the size if Bella had not chased a cat on top of it.

Nemesia Aromatica Toyal Blue

Verbena Aztec Plum Magic

Dahlia Salinas

Dutch Iris, bulbs saved from original garden

Geranium Rozanne

Armeria Pink Petite

Dutch iris with Grevillea Dorothy Gordon

Lechenaultia Mullewa Blue, another beautiful West Australian native.

Conospermum triplinervium still going strong, hope it survives to next year.

Pretty in Pink!

I think this may be the start of a love affair!
I purchased this Dahlia Salinas from Bunnings in flower, purely because I was enamoured with it, planted it immediately & have been out there every 5 seconds to check if its ok!  Hopefully it is the start of something beautiful!
