The Garden – Part 2

There have been changes in the front yard too. We started with some ornamental pines, a hybiscus, and our lovely pink crepe myrtle tree. It hasn’t bloomed quite so much this year because of the rain. This was a year or two back, when we were in a pretty dry spell.

What we have been successful with is rosemary. We now know that that plant can flourish anywhere. But we are most proud of our Australian flowering plants. We’ve planted grevilleas and the Sydney flannel flower, and are growing a pair of wattle bushes. But one bush that has been very spectacular is this one. I love the grey foliage and lavender bells. I’m not sure where in Australia it is from, Western Australia perhaps?
