Just had to photograph our Mock Orange last weekend.
It has been in flower for several weeks now and is located right by our electricity meter…
…which I read each night to record the amount of solar power returned to the grid. As I brush against he bush I am engulfed by the gorgeous aroma emitted by Mock Orange.
The Daphne bush, in front of Mock Orange is surviving and does flower, but is not in the same league as its showy neighbour. However, there is likely to be a severe ‘haircut’ when flowers fade…..and daphne is not going to be the victim!

About a week or so back we had a few frosts which turned the ground white. While taking a few photos of the frost I noticed that some of our plants still had, or are just beginning to come into bloom.
With joints aching from cold weather and all other things associate with one’s seventh decade, I managed to snap a few images which I thought would brighten my winter.
Also interesting to read on some blogs that the northern hemisphere summer commenced on June 21(ish). That was when the seasons began/ended, on the solstice/equinox when I was at school. Somewhere along the line Australian media hijacked the seasons and we have had a month of winter, already!
Hope you enjoy.
