Leaving Apollo Bay after breakfast and stopping along the beach to take one last photo. The sea is quite calm and serene today after all the rain of the previous evening. Upon my return home,I ventured into the garden to see what surprises awaited me. I always do this before I start the tedious chore of unpacking! Well,look what I found! One of my dendrobiums (native orchids) had flowered for the first time, even producing a double flower! Look at the intense purple colour! Walking round to the front garden I was again surprised to see another first bloom....my bearded iris in flower.Tall,healthy and looking fantastic! My week long road trip was very enjoyable.But....it's always so good to be back home!
