The last rays of daylight touch the tips of the Rosemary plant on my apartment balcony.
Since I made this photo 3 days ago, several more branches of the plant are coming into flower.
So strange to see the flowers in mid-winter. But since my pink daisy and blue Bacopa are still covered with flowers, one can only assume there must be some heat generating from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows in my apartment to create some sort of micro-climate? The Sage, Lemon Thyme and Oregano have all died back for the winter as normal, but my English & Italian Parsley, Mint and Rosemary are still growing as though it is Spring. I was reading an article the other day which suggested that Australia actually has 6 seasons and we’d be better off planning our gardens that way. Personally, I think Melbourne has 365 seasons and the weather bureau forecast still can’t get their daily/weekly forecast right 🙂
Have been off the blogosphere and blog reading for several days this past week as I’m feeling all ‘blogged-out’ and except for half a dozen photos made of the sun going down, my camera is starting to gather dust again!
Still, I did read a whole book in that time which is most unusual for me as I find the eyestrain tiring and reading difficult these days.
