I spent the weekend spreading 6 bales of hay around the communal area and then some more in my little garden. Hopefully it will keep the weeds from running rampant this wet season and then also hold in some nutrients once the rains really start. Whew!
Tired old me flopped down into the swing for a rest and a huge jug of iced water, then looked up to see..... my little buds on the Ulysses host tree (I really need to find out what to call it now) they have burst into the prettiest little flowers....
Isn't that just the prettiest little bundle of pink cuteness you have ever seen? Pink is my youngest daughters favourite colour and she would be calling this pinktastic, and I totally agree. No other word for it.
I haven't seen any Ulysses butterflies around lately - gotta get the word out around town.... lunch is served.
It has inspired me to do some research and I see it is called the Evodia tree - that should be easy to remember!
While mulching I also noticed that the sexy pink lady in the corner has been rather busy - there are six flowers! How blessed I am to have these gorgeous flowers growing in my own backyard. I prefer not to pick them as they last so long on the bush, and with everything trimmed back you can easily see them from the swing or gazebo.
I cant say that I like the wet season with its heat and humidity, but gosh I do like flowers it brings...
