Just as the cold change moves into the Hill Country, I receive these photos from Andy, my Sydney neighbhor. I hope they cheer you up as they have me!
Anigozanthos “Bush Pioneer.” Known as kangaroo paw: a gorgeous Australian native that edges our front yard. (That pop of blue in the background is agapanthus praecox.)
Ceratopetalum gummiferum “Albery’s Red.” A big surprise, because our row of New South Wales Christmas Bush (named so because it flowers in December) had been struggling when we left Sydney in August! Not sure if the rest of the row looks this lush . . .
