Inside The Nursery Hot House

This photo was taken inside the greenhouse at the Narkabundah Native Plant Nursery in Sandy Point on the far eastern coast of South Gippsland.

It shows the delightfully colourful array of potted Australian Wild Flowers, this wholesale business supplies right around the country. The metal trolley in the centre of the pathway adds a focal point and combines well with the straight rows of red kangaroo paw in the background.



Honey Eater Gets The Sage Flower

These long billed honey-eaters were regular visitors to my property in South Gippsland and this particular photo was taken in a permaculture garden I once established at Mount Best in Victoria, and visited again just recently.

Many thanks to the new owners Ray and Lorraine, who still affectionately call it “Lizzies Garden” … and it was with great appreciation we saw it some 7 years later, beautifully nurtured, expanded, improved, flowering and flourishing. ~ ER

This delightful little bird enjoyed the pink sage flowers for almost a minute, while we were only an arms length away.
