Please excuse me whilst I play with the new camera :)
These are avocado flowers...
As usual I wasn't sure if we were going to get them all opening at once, or gradually - as we hover uncertainly between a sub-tropical and a temperate climate here. But here we have the proof, they're opening gradually. So I'll get a mix of girls and boys and before we know it, baby avocados will be on their way.
Spike lavender, how amazing is that colour?
Wonderful cheery chrysanthemums...
And, check these beauties out! Our two cherry blossoms - the cherry tree is just 60cm tall, and this is going to be our crop this year - and I was rather chuffed just to get these, truth be told.
