Despite being , technically, ahead of Jane on this side of the IDL, I always seem to miss posting for this.
And I’m only just squeaking in this time (see previous post about the rain)!
But, here we go and I offer absolutely no apology for my cheating!
In fact, I begin with a cheat! Some of you will have seen this photo in my Cyclone Dylan post last week.Well, another small branch of Cananga odorata came down, but, having learned last week that it does not do well in a vase, I’m re-posting this.
Canangra odorata, the source of ylangylang perfume.
Heliconias and variegated leaf Hibiscus;both quite rain-battered! And Hibiscus are not good pickers-within hours, they wilt,shrivel and turn quite goo-y.But hey! they are my house!
In this old juice bottle we have 2 ground orchids,Spathiglottis; one bright purple, the other pale pink-mauve; one purple Angelonia and some Orthosiphon,”Cats’ Whiskers.” Again, not really grown for the cut flower trade, but handy when things are scarce.
Ah! Now I’m really venturing into “cheats territory.” I had to nip down to the shops this morning and dang me! if the rain didn’t return! So I left the sunflowers and gerberas in a laundry bucket while I ran around, dealing with open windows.And by then it was lunch time.And now I’m whacked!
But these are , technically, in the house! Enjoy!
