This one is a weed too. It marched through our garden beds some years ago and with quite a lot of diligence I got rid of them. These ones are on the neighbours side of the fence and I am happy to enjoy their pretty flower just so long as they respect the borderline. (Which of course they won't but nor do the weeds I send the other way).

Catoneaster is considered a weed because of this berries but this is a prostrate form which for some reason doesn't disquiet me in the same was as the upright version that grows huge and annoying ... like the giant one on our block Whistler's Rest.

I like the variegated foliage of this plant so the flowers that appear at this time of year are just a bonus.
Talking of bonuses, I realised as I walked around the garden today that I have been missing my weekly examination of the minutiae of the garden so I am going to give myself a bonus and post every day this week.

It's been wet outside, alternating between mist and thundering rain. It is common for it to be wet in March in the mountains. I just checked and thus far this month it has been just a little bit wetter than average. We have been happy to stay inside in the dry and warm while Ian rests his arm which is slowly improving .. thank your for your kind thoughts and prayers.
The birds on the window sill remind me of a bird I saw in the tree ferns the other day ... a Fuscous Honeyeater I think. I have been noticing it in the garden of recent months but this is the first time I saw it close enough to identify. Sadly I didn't have my camera at the ready.

We didn't go out to Whistler's Rest this weekend because of Ian's continuing problems with his arm. Also it is very misty and rainy this weekend. However, the rose hips and flowers are a little memento from last weekend.

Since my last post the seasons have rolled over. Autumn has arrived and all the normal autumn things are beginning to happen. The belladonna lilies, begonias and ginger lilies are in flower. There is a crispness in the air and the sun is getting milder. It's a delicious season.
