This weekend in the garden – winter flowers

We didn’t do too much in the garden this weekend. We pruned back our Hibiscus ‘Sabrina’ and did some weeding. However, we did spend some time admiring flowers emerging in our garden. Isn’t that one of the great reasons for having a garden?

Here are some plants that we admired in our garden, which are all native to Australia:

Heart-leaf Flame Pea (Chorizema cordatum)
Heart-leaf Flame Pea (Chorizema cordatum) – such a beautifully bright plant to have in the garden.
Grevillea lanigera 'Mt Tamboritha'
Grevillea lanigera ‘Mt Tamboritha’ – this plant seems to almost always be flowering.
Eremophila glabra 'Kalbarri Carpet'
Eremophila glabra (grey leaf yellow flower form) – it is easy to not notice these flowers unless you look closely.

We also spent time admiring plants in my parents’ garden. These included the following:

Correa pulchella

Daphne odora
Daphne odora – one of my favourites due to its beautiful smell.
