CAMELLIA

Camellia sasanqua Jennifer Susan, is a wonderful camellia with soft warm pink semi-double to peony flowers, with wavy petals. It is a vigorous evergreen grower, early flowering in autumn and winter. Makes a great hedge and guaranteed to brighten winter's grey days!

FROSTY MORNING

We had our first very cold night and frosty morning last night, with the temperature down to -1˚C in our garden. The pond surfaces froze and the first rays of the sun fell on the frosty leaves.

ROSE HIPS

The roses have well and truly said goodbye for this growing season and only the hips are now evidence of their passing. Waiting for their yearly pruning so as to ensure more blooms in Spring.

AT THE PARK

Winter is well and truly here with us in Melbourne and the Queen Victoria Gardens opposite the National Gallery of Victoria look a little bleak. Nevertheless, it is always pleasant to take a walk there.
