Color & Beauty of Food Plants Give Life
The color and beauty of food plants gives life to a dry spring.
I continue to build up the soil all the time with friable and mulch laden materials.
The heat and wind are drying but the plants continue to bloom.
The beautiful pink Grevillea blossoms were a sweet treat for early Australians but now the native birds enjoy their sweet nectar.
The special pigeon pea has a richly colored flower.
The drumstick tree is full of beautiful white blossoms promising edible pods.
The spikey red flowers of the Feijoa herald delicious fruit.
Tamarillo blossoms are soft and plentiful and the many lavender flowers add to the number of bees inhabiting in the garden.
