I was surprised the other day to see the first magnolia on my potted tree. When I saw the tree in the nursery a while back I was surprised they even grew in Darwin so it became my most expensive plant purchase ever. Our courtyard has a lot of shade much of the day so it possibly doesn’t get as much sun as it would like so it’s been growing taller by the day seeking out the sun. I was thrilled to see its first flower.
I'm a Queenslander by birth and after nearly 20 years in the Northern Territory I've returned to my home state. I've been researching my Queensland ancestors for nearly 30 years and like most Aussies I'm a typical "mongrel" with English, Irish, Scottish and German ancestry. View all posts by cassmob
