Venturing out into the garden every morning during spring with my little camera in my pocket feels like I am gathering the news, except that I'm mostly a reporter for the new births department of the local Daily Star. And so here's this morning's news from our backyard creche.
|Our visitors from Louisiana say they just love it here|
in Sydney and their new daughter, Iris, promises
to be a resplendent blue Southern Belle very soon.
|This feisty little Australian native orchid, though it's|
no bigger than a five-cent piece, would like everyone
to know that it is a fully formed adult, thanks very much.
|Poking its head out amongst the figs and orchids|
to see what's happening, this little bromeliad bloom
from the South American rainforests is looking
forward to the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016.
|And though rather hairy legged and bald at the moment|
this baby Roma tomato will soon be growing rapidly
on a steady diet of water and healthy organic feeding.
|Quite honestly, I simply couldn't decide which photo |
of our young Roma tomato I liked the most, so I
decided to include both of them, because I can.
