A Leaf Photosynthesising

The autumn sun shining through a new Viburnum Tinus leaf .

Solar power at its most basic.

Viburmun Tinus


My Tansy is flowering.


Catted Stove

I set out to cross a black cat with a stove

This is what happened.



Yummy to the eye and Yummy to the tongue.

My variagated Nasturtiums are flowering deliciously!


Wise Blossoms

Salvia officinalis


Butternut Pumpkin

Bunbury grows all sorts of interesting plants.

This self-sown butter-nut pumpkin is showing signs of reverting to its original gourd state.


Pumpkin soup is on the horizon


I left my TV, my Radio, my Social Media because I was terrified.

Terrified of the possibility of a Tony Abbott Prime Monstership after the next election.

I walked outside to some fresh air and my balcony garden.

And was terrified again as I came face to face with the Monster from Evolution Space.


It was only slightly more comforting to have a second view of this creature


Hibiscus Opening

My balcony hibiscus finally begins to flower.

For those who need to these things, its varietal name is “Jayella


And a couple of hours later – - -


Society Garlic

Tulbaghia violacea

Social Garlic

Apparently the strappy leaves can be used like chives.

I do know they have a strong garlic smell.

I shall test them in the next omelette I make  :)

Peace Lily, My Wish for the World

Wish for the World

That the peace and safety
You wish for your children
Is also won by the children
Of others

That all the World’s people
Will find enough food
For their individual good
Without greed

That sharing becomes cool
That caring becomes normal
And that hatred disappears




Attack of the Killer Tomato Bush

The balcony garden is finally enjoying Spring.

Now that we have Summer almost upon us.

The tomato is beginning to overshadow the Potatoes on one side and the Capsicums on the other.


Springtime in Perth


Kangaroo Paw

A Nondescript Kalanchoe


The Poinsettia I bought at Christmas lost the last of its red leaves a couple of months ago.

Now, in the depths of winter it has just begun to practise colouring up for next Christmas.
