Spring in black and white

  Ranunculus this spring are not having a great time as they have succumbed to powdery mildew from the showery weather.
Aeonium arboreum 'Schwartzkopf' is at its best in late winter and early spring as the foliage turns a glossy black.

Ipheion uniflorum, white spring star flower forms a carpet of little white stars amongst grassy leaves.
Euphorbia ammak 'Variegata' hails from Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
Local hero Commersonia fraseri (Brush Kurrajong) in full flower now along Mullet Creek

A burst of fresh new leaves from my stock of Phalaris arundinacea var Picta

Keeping it simple: a palm tree mosaic
Wedding Iris, Dietes robinsoniana, has been in flower for weeks and I am hoping for a good crop of seed


  1. Beautiful shots, Ian. How on earth did you do that hand sculpture, which I would love to have!?

  2. Hand Sculpture not mine. I'm not that talented! It is a reconciliation piece in a local park.
