A walk in the gardens December 2006




This will be my last monthly report for 2006 and what a month it has been: Wind, rain and more wind and more rain!!

Christmas day was such a dreary day that I didn’t take any photos. The one photo I did take in December was a week earlier on the 17th of Anoptera glandulosa. This plant was on the path parallel to the main road between the green drive and the green walk though there is another plant in Colin’s garden.

The reason for going to the gardens on Christmas day, apart from walking off Christmas lunch, was to make a count of plants flowering. I didn’t make a complete survey but I covered a fair bit of the gardens so here is the list.
