When you are feeling low the best way to cheer yourself up is
Buy a Plant so I did Very Happy

Another one of the Anigozanthos Kangaroo Paw Bush Gems..
Not as long lived at some this is Bush Dance.

These flowers sit on a tall stem..



And about 15 cms up from the top of the pot are some of these..



Perhaps I will put it in a pot it may last longer.

A pot sounds like a good idea then you can move it around to find a spot it likes. It is a pretty one.

A very pretty Kangaroo Paw MA. I agree it would be good to keep it in a pot so you can move it around to advantage. flower

I see they are doing maintenance today it's hard to get on but at least they are putting a message up..

I did have intentions of potting it up this morning Gwen but instead I planted more lettuce seedlings. Thinned out and transplanted some of the baby spring onions, pulled up heaps of weeds out of the veggie beds gave the mango tree a jolly good watering as the ground on the drip line had wide open cracks in them gasp Picked more peas and all the radish, picked a few sp onions for dinner tonight..

Gave everything a water with seasol and planted a punnet of Dahlia seedlings to replace the sunflowers that never came up in the new brick planter boxes Tony made near the chook house fence .. Took some pics of a spider that insisted on crawing up my arm when I was watering the mango tree so I put it back on a bunch of flowers..

I will pot that Kangroo Paw after lunch Very Happy
