Today’s little cheer-up is from a gardener who has some not-often seen plants in the garden.
First is a lovely striped and flecked camellia.
And second is the Australian Philotheca myoporoides, otherwise known as the long-leafwax flower, or the gin-and-tonic plant.
Why the gin-and-tonic plant? Apparently it’s from the fresh, zesty fragrance.
Make mine a Campari, gin and lemonade, please…
