Floral Portrait

In the past week this part of Australia has had torrential rain, very cold conditions with gale force winds. This beautiful pink blossom on the peach tree has survived it all.

Arum Lily

Yesterday I took a walk through the Botanic Gardens, Colac, Victoria, Australia. One of my favourite flowers, the Arum Lily (Zantedeschia aethiopica) was in full bloom. The Arum Lily originates in South Africa, and is a very popular plant in Australian gardens. However it has escaped many gardens and is listed as a noxious weed.
