Australian Native Nursery

After a big deluge of rain inundated the northern part of NSW (which claimed lives and damaged many properties), yesterday seem to be a respite from the erratic mood of mother nature.
We took advantage of a beautiful sunny Sunday that my husband and I decided to visit our local nursery.

Afternoon tea with a bunch of naked ladies!!

I thought the header of my post today would stir up some imagination, or even draw some readers' attention.
This summer, we really had some extreme weather ranging from well below average to reaching the hottest ever recorded in Australia. One of the things that we are accustomed to is weather which can change dramatically in one day, but not usually with such huge changes.

Despite the scorching heat which we've experienced, this naked lady a.k.a. resurrection lily, magic lily, or surprise lily, emerged in the midst of the searing heat, proving just how tough they are.



And it creates the most enticing aroma wafting throughout the house.

My white rambling rose tea set is a Robert Gordon creation, a famous Australian pottery.

Scientific name: Lycoris squamigera is believed to have been originated in Japan or China. It is a herbaceous plant with basal, simple leaves, which are not present when the flowers emerge from the crown. The flowers spring dramatically from the ground in mid to late summer, it usually takes only 4 to 5 days from the first emergence to full bloom. The suddenness is reflected in it's common name.

Chuffed

As a new blogger I can't seem to get a grip on the  technicalities of creating my personal templates, but given time I will get there.
For now I will try my best to share the photos of our garden on a day-to-day basis.

A gift

This salt and pepper shaker is a present from my dearest daughter from Sweden. Aren't the the little kittens adorable?

Tea with my dearest daughter.

Such a pleasant afternoon, coming home while the sun is still high. Giving me enough time to enjoy the garden and share an afternoon tea with my daughter.
