http://www.gingerfactory.com.au/ had lunch (not noteworthy) & had a look around the garden. The heliconias are just magnificient & are a great subject for a quilt or two.
Ginger flowers - we only have cream flowers like this beehive flower. There are so many different ginger plants with so many different & vibrant flowers.

HofM has worked extremely hard over the last couple of days - carting dirt and mulch from the front of the property to the back yard. The garden is getting ready to receive a lot of new bromeliads.
This tree was chopped down last year, parts of it were used as legs for the seats in the puuuurgola and we are using some of the stumps to house new bromeliads.
Here are some of the new broms waiting patiently with the friendly statues and they'll all be added to the garden along with some of the pups from the old broms. Should look really great & be a boost to us to have this 'brand new' garden to look at.
We had this pineapple plant in the garden - it went completely under during the flood and afterwards, it produced this fruit & it's getting bigger & bigger. Harvest-time is just around the corner! We'll have to call in helpers for this harvest season!
