Karyn picked these two beautiful azalea's up from the local supermarket and there's a perfect home for them under the tall fern by the other azaleas.
Most of the plants that we put in to the Mothers garden in May last year are doing really well but, unfortunately, one of the grevillias the didn't survive the dry autumn so we've put in a replacement today. It's a different variety but that won't matter.
Over near the lime tree and hebe, we've also planted some more hellebores - two from pots and a few self-sown volunteers from the path and driveway. It's clear from the other garden bed that hellebores do very well here.
We've planted a number of native hibiscus's in the front garden over the years and they've grown quickly and produced beautiful purple flowers. But they haven't lasted long and the last one turned up its toes during the very dry autumn/winter this year. It was next to the one we had (unsuccessfully) transplanted a couple of years ago.
