(and sometimes the beast!)




If you've noticed splashes of purple in the scrub on the side of our roads recently, this is most likely what you're seeing: hovea, with masses of sweet faced pea flowers. It's one of my favourite Australian natives and always gives me a boost when it starts flowering. 
 It also comes in white as I discovered on my recent trip to Fairhill Nursery and Botanical Gardens.  Not sure which I love most.  I love them both equally????
