Disregard anything I’ve said before about what property we’re getting. We bought a cottage in December but thought it prudent not to say too much. On January 15 we were at the new place and as Nigel got the mower out I had the idea of running around taking photos before he mowed. They’re a mixed bag.
Beautiful white Hebe (native). Hebe is now back to being called Veronica
Cabbage tree (native). Cordyline australis
Lots of buttercup
A lovely cream rose
Any amount of white clover
Some clover shares space with grass.. oh no, is that cooch? Bet it is, its come gratis with every other property we’ve owned!
Hebe / Veronica (native), and it looks like one I owned many years ago, a very fine 1980s cultivar named ‘Icing Sugar’. Delighted to find this in the garden! If you’d like to see decent photos of ‘Icing Sugar’ flowers, there’s good ones at Terrain
No shortage of dandelions!
Lastly, a deep pink carpet rose that’s living up to its name 🙂
