I shan't tell Stuart and Nat any of this, or the fact that I can see all the bits which are wrong, I have at least learnt that from the past - what seem like glaring mistakes to me other people don't notice as they didn't see the work in progress.
I went for a relaxing walk in the Botanic Gardens yesterday and saw this tree in full flower - absolutely beautiful, with a lovely perfume as well. It is commonly called Fairy Paintbrushes, one of the mimosaceae family, native to this area of Queensland. The tree is about four or five years old, but I have never seen it in flower before, possibly this is its first flowering.
These crinum lilies grow wild in lots of parts of Australia and make a spectacular showing when they are flowering. Unfortunately there is a caterpillar which loves them too and will eat right down into the crown of the lily, killing the plant. Thank goodness the Gardens seem to have eradicated it from there for the time being.
I have gone on for too long, I need to start the day's work.
