rainy Sunday

Lots of lovely wet stuff falling from the skies over Sydney, started last night and has kept up all day so the garden is getting a really good soaking, let's hope some of it is landing in the catchment areas.
So what do you do on a rainy Sunday, you surf the net of course.
Sonia left a comment on my lilium so I went across to Brazil to visit her garden where she has the most amazing fruit tree called a Jaboticaba tree (Jaboticabeira)
I think sometimes we have such preconceived ideas based on our own experience (such as what a fruit tree looks like) and to see something so exotic and different is to understand how wonderfully diverse nature can really be.

The joys of blogging, especially on a wet Sunday. I've learned more in the past year about gardening in the Northern Hemisphere than I ever expected to. It's also reinforced the belief that regardless of our location, we have so much in common.

Glad to hear that the rain has persisted all day because we were going to go up to Bundanoon for the Garden Ramble (8 gardens on display). We went last year and thoroughly enjoyed it and had looked forward to seeing them again, especially as it's been such a good season. We decided not to go as we thought it would be a bit miserable in the rain. It actually stopped raining early this morning here and there's scarcely been a drop all day. Anyway, I hope that those who went gained much inspiration. We hope to visit gardens in Gundaroo, just north of Canberra next weekend.

I think the rain was widespread so guess Bundanoon would have been damp, daughter drove to Canberra today to see an exhib. at the National Gallery so I'm glad to hear she would have had a dry day (even though your garden would have liked the rain)
Haven't been to Gundaroo but I hear it's an interesting town.

Hello Erica, thanks to mention my blog on your page! Very nice!

I couldn't agree with you more. This is certainly not what i expected but I guess that's what makes gardening even more enjoyable is when you think you've seen everything and then realise that you haven't!!!
