A sparaxis plant has sprung up in the garden, ready to flower when the weather warms in spring. The garden has been loving the rain that we have had this past week, about 3 1/2" in all. The ground is now soft & makes weeding much easier.
The rain that we have had here in Sydney is not nearly as much as the NSW North Coast where it has been flooding yet again, the third time this year. As an ex local to this part of the world, I remember floods every year, but not three in a few weeks. However, I have been talking with another ex local who does remember it flooding three times in a year, just not for a very long time.
