Fabulous February

A dear friend gave us a tiny mimosa plant about 4 years ago:  it's now about 7-8 ft. tall, with stunning, fragrant blossom.

The temperature is wonderful today and I've done 3 hours digging this morning.   In wandering around there is so much beauty to see:-

The crimson abutilon

The peach tree already in blossom

A New Zealand bottle brush shrub which will soon pop its scarlet brushes

And a flowering money tree against a backdrop of flowering lavender

with a few of the yellow clover weed that gets in everywhere.  

There is much to do out there but on a day like today - the first after the disappearance of a cold North wind, it is a real pleasure to get stuck in.
