A Photo from our trip to Owen's Orchids.
Some time ago I had the honor of meeting, via our little online garden club, a nice young lady from Australia. Laura sent us seeds all the way from down under when we were rebuilding our garden after the storm. I was so happy to find out that she has a blog. Australia is filled with some of the most unusual and beautiful plants that you have ever seen. Laura is an excellent photographer and I have seen her post some gorgeous pictures of beautiful plants over the past two years. Currently she has a post up about a Variegated Peppermint Tree. Its one of the most beautiful trees I’ve ever seen. The dark bark showing through the light green foliage is just gorgeous! If you’re interested in seeing new and unusual plants, you might want to check out her blog, One Aussie Perspective. Meanwhile, I’m going to shoot her a note and see if that Peppermint Tree makes seed!
