This month, since #TreeSquares is over I decided to post to Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge (FOTD). Like Becky B, Cee offers us the freedom to post every day or when we feel like it. I made the mistake of classifying my trees as flowers for about half the month last month. So this month – no trees. (maybe). Cee’s FOTD challenge accepts:
- Single flowers
- Multiple flowers
- Flower fields
- Tree or bush blossoms
- Autumn leaves
- Spring leaves
- Decorative Cabbage
- Still life
- Fake or Silk Flowers
As I swirled through my forested universe last month for Becky’s TreeSquares, I came in touch again with my Australian trip. This month I’ll revisit only the flowers I photographed in Ballarat, Melbourne, Healesville Sanctuary and Queensland. Sometimes I might combine my post with another challenge I am doing, but I may just post one photo a day. I’ve never done that, so I’ll see how it goes.
Toowoomba Rose Garden Lacks Weeds
Most of you know that I have a soft spot in my heart for roses. Helping to care for Woodlake Rose Garden in CA requires so much work especially keeping weeds down.
While this burlywood-colored mulch might not be the most attractive ground cover, it is doing the job both cutting down weeds and retaining much needed water in the heat of summer..
Something else I appreciated was a simple, easy to read chart. If I wanted to find something I liked for my yard, I would know what kind of rose to get.
Hope you enjoyed my Toowoomba roses today.
