Boronia

It's been a long week.  I've been to a birthday party in Brisbane, lost my camera, done a big week's work, bought a new camera (learning curve) mowed about half of the yard, been out to the studio, organised the hanging of an exhibition in a gallery and tonight I plan to make pizza and bread.
However, the highlight of the week was finding this boronia in the yard....
...  it is hard to grow here because hte soil is alkaline and the summers are hot (that means pots don't work.) This time,  I dug a huge hole in the yard, filled it with "azalea soil" and planted it in a shady spot.  It has survived and is flowering.  It surely means that spring has sprung!
