As we slip slowly into Autumn, the hibiscus seems to be telling me it likes this tropical weather. I love my plants, and if they have been a gift, when I look at them I always think of the person who gave them to me, bringing extra pleasure.
I cleaned up the area on the other side of the rose arbour, and was struck by the symmetry of nature. These two silverbeet plants self-seeded, and coincidentally are growing in the same location on each side of the path – couldn’t have planned it better myself! They stand like little soldier sentinels.
