I also went to collect some watsonia fibre. I have shown the flowers of watsonia plants previously. But at this time of the year, the plants are completely dry...
However, down where the watsonia is at its best, the blood lilies are appearing also….
The last of the Easter lilies are still around. These are also called "bella donna lilies" or "naked ladies". this one is particularly lovely….
Then I found the most bizarre item of all…. a lilac flower! These are supposed to flower in the spring and here we are, at the end of a hot summer with spring in the air?
I did collect a few vegetables for dinner….
Lunch was corn… and I boiled the water before I picked the corn and yes, it does make a difference.
