Another morning in the garden and I am so pleased to see my new favourite starting to bloom. Of course it is another Aussie native and over the next week or so it should be a mass of lacy pink blossom.

Well it is spring so all my plants/shrubs/trees are progressively flowering.

So here are a couple more Aussie natives, one, the callistemon pinefolius, is somewhat unusual in that it has green flowers; the second a grevillea lollipops flowers basically all year round.

And the third, obviously not an Aussie native, is of one of my blueberry plants - large and delicious fruit!!
