garden bloggers bloom day, June 2014
The purple flowers on the French lavender bushes are starting to open.
I dug up most of the garlic chives, just keeping a small clump. The white starry flowers have gone, replaced by seedheads.
Many of the Correa 'Dusty Bells' flowers still have closed petals, but one by one the bells are opening and offering up their pollen.
The leaves of the Cotinus (Smoke bush) have provided dramatically changing colour before drying up and blanketing the soil below.
The dainty Erigeron daisies don't enjoy the hot summers, but somehow manage to survive and give joy and appreciation.
The foliage of Hellebore argutifolius shines even without its green flowers.
I planted Geranium 'Seaspray' for groundcover. It's still patchy, but one or two flowers have appeared.
Always interesting to see what turns up in the compost. It's like a scientific experiment to find out what is biodegradable. I think this is what's left of my scruffy worn out jeans.
This tiny unidentified fungus looks a bit like a lollipop, but it wouldn't be sensible to taste it.
Something could be seen in the possum nesting box. Could it be a sleeping possum? The telescopic lens found the answer.
Despite its attempt at camouflage I managed to capture a Pied Currawong with my camera.
