My Favourite Grevillea pteridifolia is a mass of blooms up top
I am finding it hard to take pics of it now



Ruellia this is my original plant I have grown cuttings from it
And the new one has buds on it too, I wonder how Daniel's plant is.



Michelia figo aka Port Wine Magnolia.



A close up of the Sparaxi I will lift them and pot up
Just in case they multiply too much ..

MA the Greviller pteridifolia is a beauty .It grows all over the NT .such a lovely colour.
I thought Port wine Magnolia only grew in southern clines , learn something new every day.

Love the scent of port wine magnolia... juicy fruit chewing gum which I loved when I was a kid lol! The ones at school should be flowering too then... haven't been past them for a while. Gwen, they aren't ordinary magnolias but Michelia figo. They are very tough and especially good in dry areas... though can be slow.

The grevilleas are looking good now and the ruellias always put on a great display. I have two different ones I'm hoping to get a couple of others soon.
