Welcome to the forums, Penny_lee!

The hakea shot with the dew is stunning, a lovely set of photos. You have a beautiful garden!

Oh no! the butterfly photo didn’t come up! It was the best one of the lot too!! :cry: :cry:
Oh, so many typos, :x I was a bit tired when I put these pics up *wacks forehead* honestly Carnatin ? Hakia ? Not once but TWICE? :evil:

:D Anyway, thankyou for you’re lovely comments, they’re really appreciated, all I do is wait for the lighting to be right, and take photo’s using the macro setting on my digital.
My garden isn’t that great, non wetting sand’s a pain, so is the salt spray from the (fairly distant) coast.
Having said that, I love the plants in it to bits, I’ll be sad to leave them, as the place is for sale, a lot of seed pod collecting and transplanting has been going on though, I wish I could take the Banksias lol, they’re native to the area, who knows how old they are! :o
Now I cant wait to start my horticulture course so I can have a half decent chance of actually getting any to succeed, by the time I finish studying, all my seeds will have fizzled away to dust!
Oh well, brand new garden now and with very few plants as of yet, a fantastic apple tree though…..I’d better stop there, I’m such a chatterbox! :roll:

Hi Penny_Lee, and welcome. Your pics are all gorgeous. As for your butterfly pic, you simply didn't put the link in for it. If you do it today you still have time to get it into the comp.

I was thinking your Grandma's rose may have been 'Imp' but it appears to be much tidier than imp.
