Well, I ran out of light tonight, which I thought might happen so I took a few photos in the bright morning sun before leaving the coast. After years of carrying flowers back in jars and buckets and milk bottles, I finally realised the chilly bin (esky) is an obvious solution to keep them cool and prevent spills in the car. So I emptied all the feijoas and peppers into a box and packed in the flowers.
They arrived home in perfect condition, and I even managed to make a 2 sided vase tonight, although the light was gone by the time I photographed it.
The little green disks are the buds of my green chrysanthemums. I hope they will open over the week. The tall knobby thing is a kniphofia going to seed. Dahlias are Chat Noir, Unknown White, and Eveline. There are a few Hydrangeas, Phormium leaves and a Euphorbia (maybe Great Dixter), Anemones, Sysrinchium, and the copper coloured Chrysanthemums.
We had flooding this week from the end of Cyclone Debbie. The rain guage showed 135 mm of rain over the week, almost 6 inches. Our water tanks are almost full when at this time of year they are often empty.
Hop on over (sorry) to Cathy’s Rambling in the Garden to see all the beautiful Spring flowers.
