Green on green


Growth doesn't have to be red like yesterday to be appealing. I love the different colours of green on this little box hedge plant.

Reflection:
Isaiah 61:11 (New International Version)
For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.

  1. That is very off-putting. I had a row of box-hedges along a fence line in St Ives and in the 24 years I lived there they only grew about 20" in height. How can your plants have THAT much new growth??

    I thought it was a Murraya or some-such. I love it when plants get covered all over with new growth.

    On the way to uni I am starting to walk through carpets of jacaranda detritus. Just about time to take a train ride up to Hornsby via the North Shore line!

  2. OK, this is not the English box hedge plants that I showed at the very beginning of this blog. Those grow a miniscule amount each year. I also have a few Japanese box hedge plants and this photo is one of those. They grow a little faster but not too fast.

  3. Regarding Jacaranda I noticed them when coming down to Sydney this week - a sure sign the year is rushing to an end. Still quite a few more weeks before our local ones flower. We used to have one in our garden but sadly it died.
