We are very lucky to have such a beautiful variety of flowers that grow wild on our nature-strips (the verge) without any intervention from us at all. Almost everyone (who doesn't spray their nature-strips with poisons) has these lovely flowers popping up at the moment - they even survive the lawn mowers!
I just have to show them off!
They're so tough, the neighbour pulled some out of her nature-strip and threw them into her trailer.. we rescued them and planted them in the backyard. ALL of them still have some green left, despite having very little root system left, and VERY little water thrown at them. :) I think they just might make it - but we'll see how they are after this long hot summer. Crossing fingers!
