Tim surprised me with a sweet little bouquet of grevillea and a lone bottlebrush that he picked while he was out and about. I would love to grow some of the lemon/cream coloured grevillea, they are a stunning large shrub which I'm sure the native birds here would enjoy.
I managed to squeeze in some 'gardening' too. We potted up a dwarf lemon for the courtyard and I actually planted some garlics and some sweet peas too. All the gardening has to be low maintenance though. Tom isn't as interested in growing things as I am but doesn't mind tending herbs and chillies so I will just gradually work him into a bigger patch... maybe.
I had a bit of disappointment at home. When I checked on my seed trays, I realised that I hadn't watered them and had left the mini-greenhouse open and they had all dried out beyond salvation. This afternoon it is back to the beginning for the seed sowing and hopefully a lesson learnt.
