We are very fortunate to have friends who bring us interesting plants like the ones below. We were not entirely sure what they were but thought they might be orchids.
And then one flowered. A tiny flower which could scarcely be seen but when taken in close up it proved to be a perfect orchid. To understand the scale the black insects are ants.
We haven't identified it yet. If anyone knows please tell us.
Well perhaps not just yet. A good friend gave us a gift of this coffee plant about five years ago. For the first time we are seeing flowers on it and numerous buds. We are watching it closely and hopefully in a few months time we will be able to say " Anyone for Hyde Park grown coffee." It might just be one cup but you have to start somewhere!
