A found still life with Euphorbia lambii – nothing to do with Jacqui! This interesting plant has the propensity to become something of a weed in Tasmania as it is in parts of Italy. I struggled over many seasons to grow it in W.A. and here it self seeds and just grows, lovely!

Grape Hyacinth in Prospect, a small flower bulb that multiplies rapidly every year so much so that it could be called a weed!

Its ANZAC day in Australia, a day when we remember those who have died in wars. So this group of lilies seems like a very appropriate post. On a personal level I saw my father suffer every day with poor health as a result of WW2.
It was only after his death that I learned he had been decorated but refused to accept his honors because he did not believe in the glorification of war.
