Flowers, floods and a different slant on a vegetable.
This bush will grow larger in years to come (so I'm told), but for its first time in flower, it looks very pretty albeit sparse.
We saw this shrub up in the Dandenongs last year, where it was huge and gorgeous. Not long after that we saw the same plant in a pot, and bought it straight away, knowing how good it would look if it takes off.
One of our several Grevilleas - this one is appropriately named "Peaches And Cream".
Another small shrub that I can't remember the name of, but it's so pretty.
We've got a few small cacti in pots, and they flower occasionally for short bursts. Isn't this one cute!
OK, that's all for the flowers. Now for the floods! The Diamond Creek which runs through Eltham is usually just a trickle, but after a couple of inches of rain last weekend, this is the result!
Barb over at Woof Nanny blog, had a photo of an Asian green vegie like this. Last week I was cutting a Bok Choy up, and remembered Barb's photos, so I got my camera out and took the same shots! Barb said she might make a print using a rubber stamp pad - cool idea!
