Beautiful Spring Blooms

Freshly opened, these beautiful little dendrobium orchids are delightful.
The blue hydrangea will soon be covered with plate sized blooms.
Thousand bells, as the name suggests, has just started to produce thousands of bells.
These amazing little strawberry flowers are starting to produce a bumper crop.

2018 Spring Flower display at David Jones Sydney (Video)

The flower display at David Jones’ Sydney store is beautiful. There are wonderful displays in every window surrounding the store, and inside, the super-sized arrangements reach the ceiling. Attracting large numbers of visitors, and taking many hours to assemble, this is truly a spectacular sight.

I hope you enjoy the video while listening to the music of:

Early morning garden snaps

In Australia we are in the middle of winter but still have some spring-like surprises in the garden.

My lemon thyme – photographed this morning – has spread out and is hanging beautifully over the raised garden bed.

A selection of my growing collection of succulents are enjoying some early morning sunshine.

Sprays of buds on my cymbidium orchid are ready to burst open.

The kalanchoe is almost showing its bright orange flowers, which will contrast nicely with the glossy green leaves.

A dainty light green and waxy-leaved groundcover – Sedum ‘Little missy’ – has almost covered the top of this pot and has spread over the edge.

Dendrobium Orchids

These Dendrobium nobile orchids were my among my father’s favourite orchids and I have grown these specimens from rooted stems divided from his original plants. Blooming later in spring, they are a welcome patch of colour when most cymbidium orchids have finished flowering.
