Everyone say g’day to one of our favorite Australians, Frank Greenhalgh, who will teach us that if you are Down Under and someone says, “Nice pigface,” it isn’t necessarily an insult:
“Hello there fellow GPOD’ers. After an unusually dry winter and early spring, native plants have now flowered nicely in Metung in the state of Victoria, Australia. Evergreen plants endemic to either the southwest of the state of Western Australia or the eastern coast of the continent grow well in our environment (Mediterranean climate; acidic sandy loam; few frosts). You may not be familiar with some of these plants, and hence, I have posted some photos of their flowers for your information and, hopefully, enjoyment.”
Have a garden you'd like to share? Email 5-10 high-resolution photos (there is no need to reduce photo sizing before sending—simply point, shoot and send the photos our way) and a brief story about your garden to GPOD@taunton.com. Please include where you're located!
Sending photos in separate emails to the GPOD email box is just fine.
