With the year that has been, we are keenly aware of how lucky we are to live in this beautiful country. Not only this, but the floral offerings of the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges are particularly generous, bringing forth a rich tapestry of colour for us to enjoy throughout summer.
As the weather warms, there is so much to look forward to – the holidays spent with family, fresh fruity cocktails, and the blooming of gorgeous Australian flora. The sight and smell of our native flowers bring with them a nostalgia like no other. A childhood spent exploring through bush, camping next to rivers and travelling across the outback can be immediately recalled when spring fades to summer and banksias light up the bushes like candles. Blessed with uniquely textured and wonderfully coloured blooms, it would be remiss not to take up the opportunity to plant such treasures in our own backyards.
