On returning home from our short break of 1 week, in my front garden my New Zealand Christmas bush has started to flower, even though it is winter and has been very cold we have had sunny days.When summer arrives it becomes a mass of bright red flowers. The leaves are evergreen and feel leathery.
Also my Grass Tree which is indigenous to Australia produces sporadically a flower spike resembling a spear. Their natural habitat is in the Australian bush with a lifespan of 600yrs! When we get them from the nursery they are registered with a stamped number as you can be fined for taking them from the bush.
The above photo is a grouping of Grass trees in their natural bush habitat.
Well must get myself to bed as I am aiming for a big sewing day tomorrow to work on a small quilt I am doing for a swap project. Goodnight Jen.
