        I was just about to say something about they are perfect even if you don’t catch them at the right time — then went back to see the picture again and found the second shot there as well.– they’re always perfect, in their own way!

        Here today… and gone tomorrow! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ They sure don’t last.

        Two great shots!

        Some of mine seem to last up to 3 days, but are immediately replaced by another just as beautiful, and that can go on for months at a time! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can have over a hundred on display at any given time. The trees are more than 50 years old.

            YES! I saw this beautiful multi flowered plant at our Government House Gardens on an Open Day and had to find the gardener to ask what it was. Recently i found my neighbour has one in his rear garden too. ๐Ÿ™‚

            Can you get any photos??

          Aha.. I found it. It is called a Brunfelsia. There is also a hibiscus flower here that changes color. It is one that grows into a tree. I bought one not knowing this and so gave it to my housekeeper who planted it in front of her house. A herd of goats came by and ate it!!

            Seems the brunfelsia is a relative of the Blue Potato Bush (nightshades) i posted recently?

            A herd of goats is one flower problem i’m never likely to have – thankfully! ๐Ÿ˜‰

              True… but i think more Aussies would have their gardens decimated by fire and flood than by the ‘Roos! ๐Ÿ˜‰

              ‘Roos can get to almost plague proportions in some country locations when they are culled, and we have had bad plagues of mice and we also have a ‘Rabbit-proof’ fence to protect crops from marauding rabbits coming from one half of the country to mine!

              It’s a strange land. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Noreen, after reading your comment, I went out and photographed the same hibiscus today. Go back to today’s blog (the same one you commented on) to see what it now looks like. Let me know you saw this!
