May the roof above us never fall in
And may we good companions beneath it never fall out.

Lips, Oranges and Limes

I've been meaning to snap this Australian Native Finger Lime we picked up at the Yarraville farmers market a few weeks ago. Needless to say it is a slow grower and looks much the same as when we bought it. It has a nice semi-shaded position in the front garden where it will hopefully thrive being a rainforest plant that likes a bit of cover.

Closeby, this is the Hot Lips salvia I also promised to take a photo of. I love love love these salvia greggis. This one's native to Mexico. Can you imagine coming across it in the desert?

And while we're talking about all this tropical paradise, the north facing side of the house has been like a sauna all summer so we planted some heat lovers over the weekend. Divine smelling madagascar jasmine above the seat there, and a blood orange tree in the pot under the window.
