This post was supposed to be for garden bloggers bloom day, but my photos wouldn't upload in time, so they are a day late. Still taking photos with iPad, my computer is up & running now & I have Internet, but now I can't find my camera cable. Will eventually get organised.
2 tiny flowers on my very hard pruned wedding bush
I have three ricinocarpos pinifolius (wedding bush) in my garden so far, will be planting heaps more as they are so magnificent when in full bloom.

I think there's about 10 of these along the back verandah hiding underneath all the old geranium growth. will dig out & pot up to replant in same spot after our retaining wall has been built.
Illyarrie, beautiful Euc.
Anyway garden still looking bare & dry, but we had 34.5mls of rain on Thursday, so I began digging in Ernest yesterday & created a new garden bed for all my aloes.
Another stinker of a day, I have been pruning my grevillea petrophiloides over a couple of days as its such a monster, & still not finished, might have to call the chief in with chainsaw to finish off.
This grevillea is indigenous to our area, which is why it was one of the few healthy plants in the garden when we first arrived, oh & it's also planted right next to the septic!
I let the chooks out that evening & they went wild scratching around looking for insects.
Every time I do a marvellous job of pruning a shrub, I always need to ask the chief for affirmations, but he always fails to see the beauty in my skill & can only see the mess of the pruning s left behind!

What an amazing woman, at 71 she belted out her songs so powerfully& beautifully, one of the best concerts I have been to. The audience was totally mesmerised as she interacted & performed, giving us three songs for encore, I so want to buy her book now "a natural woman"
