    Some photos and notes around the garden. I usually don't distinguish between flowers and food crops but will stick with flowers here.

    Roses in the duck yard.

    Another blossom on Silas Marner. The color seems more true now but fragrance seems minimal.

    Ceonothus. So many bees, just constant buzzing and motion.

    Great spread, Daniel. The third foto from the top features some tangerine-coloured roses. I find these delicately beautiful. Seeing your Ceanothus just fills me with a burning jealousy. Those are such dramatically beautiful bushes. The bride likes it too.

    Beautiful! Your Ceonothus is beautiful, I'm not familiar with those but I love it!

    Thank you Netty. It's a fantastic shrub for pollinating insects. All types of bees love it!
    Not good next to house in wildfire-prone places, the waxy leaves are flammable same as pine or eucalyptus.

    Lovely photos Daniel, we can grow ceonothus in the UK but it can be hit by frost in bad winters.
