On Our Walks

    Your phalenopsis orchid is beautiful and in good condition. The leaves are a giveaway. Ian is most envious as he has not this one. Most of ours are yellow, white or purple. We have not been able to acquire the spotted multi coloured phalenopsis orchids. 

    I would love to see the franjipanie photo that is the colour of the "post comment" box.

    We have the common white, Darwin Red, yellow and the multi coloured tropical franjipanies. I am trying my hand at grafting a white and yellow. So far I've not had much success. But I will keep trying. Eventually 1 must succeed.

    Desert roses are another favourite plant. I love how the base of a desert rose becomes bulbous when the plant is confined to a pot. Desert roses do well when they are pot bound.

    @tigerbeth I wish wisteria  would grow up here. It looks just great tumbling over the timber fence.

    I can feel the serenity from here.

    @kmakm do not want to head back to Sydney. I was just settled in on the balcony with my Netflix

    Sounds different to my experience of the region @Kiwi Angel.  Back-breaking grape picking at minimum wage and hailstones the size of softballs and almost knee deep.  But I was young and fit and had a ball!

    @Sister I remember doing strawberry and apple picking when I was young back in New Zealand - tough work!

    And never do selective apricot picking!...

    I can imagine you don't @Kiwi Angel!

    Gorgeous photos!  

    @Sister scabby potato paddocks hardest work I’ve ever done! And I’ve roused is shearing sheds, milked cows, cut thistles by hand and carted hay in the height of summer 14 hours a day and still would never ever volunteer to pick a scabby paddock ever again

    @tigerbeth. I've been thinking of you and wondering how you are going. xx Your wisteria photos are gorgeous.

    @Annie C love the bush mechanic story.
