A Floral Farewell

10 Apr 2018 1:53 PM | Anonymous

In this second week of April leaving Yallaroo is fast approaching. There is only a fortnight before we move.

We are looking forward to new horticultural challenges when we find a suitable property in the lower Blue Mountains.

During the Easter weekend we found a plant flowering in one of our dams. This was identified as Ottelia ovalifolia, the Swamp Lily and has flowered for the first time just as we are about to leave. This was a rather exciting farewell present.

We have never planted any Swamp Lilies so perhaps the seed was carried in by water birds.
