The First...........

 The first flower on the Native Hibiscus finally unfolded its petals today adding a splash of sunshine to the front garden.
It really is such a beautiful tree, what with the reddy-green heart shape foliage that adds a different hue to the surrounding green vegetation, the subtle yellow flowers bring a happy warmth into the scene.
 With the warmer weather lingering on the horizon it will not take long until this tree begins to fill out and surge towards the sky, adding shade and privacy to the front elevation.
Meanwhile closer to the house I noticed that the frangipani is also due to bloom, soon the delicate and alluring fragrance of this tropical treasure will waft through the open windows inducing memories of lazy days spent reclining around the pool in Fiji..........................

It seems you've been having quite an experience since I've been in Sydney Gemel, I so admire you fir doing the cleansing retreat and can only image how fantastic you feel now. I would so love to be able to do something like that, it just seems that there are too many people who get in the way of it ever happening.
