Who’s Eating My Flowers?

I have these gorgeous seedlings that were starting to get a decent amount of flowers just in time for our wedding but someone keeps eating them! I put some snail pellets down but the next morning more flowers had disappeared. They’re so perfectly removed it looks like someone has chopped them off. What’s happening??

Spring Has Sprung

In one day I received two positive comments about the flowers in our front garden. One from a Jehovah’s Witness who commented on my Snap Dragons after she gave me her speech about God. Another from a group of teenage girls who were walking past, unbeknown to me working in the garden. So, I thought it time to show off some of these beautiful spring flowers to you.

Crab Apple Tree – Mum and Dad gave us this tree a few months ago as our feature tree for the front garden. It looked like a dead stick. Now it’s covered in leaves, buds and pretty pink flowers.

These Snap Dragons have been going strong for nearly 6 months!

Couldn’t resist putting in another photo of Grandma’s beautiful orchids. This one seems to be the result of some in-breeding between my pink orchids and my yellow orchids. Pink must be dominant because I have many more pink orchids than yellow orchids despite starting off with one of each.

This Port Wine Magnolia was rescued from my brother’s property before he demolished his house. I’m so glad it survived the transplant and is now covered in buds. Unfortunately, the buds don’t open much further than this before they drop off. So nice to get a plant that’s 6 feet tall straight into our new garden where all the other plants are just babies.

Photos don’t do this Boronia justice. It is absolutely covered in flowers!
