here in Australia we start a season on the first day of the month, for example, for us, Spring starts on the 1st of September, Summer the 1st December, and so on, and i've always thought it was the same all around the world, however, I have just found at that this is actually incorrect, many/all (i'm not sure) Americans actually dictate the seasons on the Spring and Autumn (Fall) equinox and the Summer and Winter Solstices. Now i'm not sure of why australia does it differently but apparently so do many other countries as well, many do it on the dates of the Equinox and Solstices and others on the 1st of the appropriate months. how truly fascinating.
Well, yesterday i was out in the garden weeding out my bromeliad garden as well as splitting up some of the broms in there as well to fill up a couple of spaces, it's not done yet but it's coming along nicely, i hope to finish it off next week. i would finish it tomorrow but Friday is my chemistry exam so i'll be studying my little bum off in preparation for it. and then after my exam i'm being picked up by dad and we are zooming up to Toowoomba to set up for a Craft show up there. i may not stay up there all week next week, though then again i might, it all depends on how i feel at the time. if i do stay up there you wont hear from me because Grandma doesn't have any internet access. but when i do come back.... whenever that may be i'll have some photos to show you, they'll be more of the Carnival, and some of some orchids that i was given by a friend of mine yesterday, he gave me 3 TRAYS of them! how nice is that?! and they are some really rare ones too which is very exciting.
Also, guess what! i now have a whole 10 followers/subscribers, so to those 10 wonderful people out there, THANK YOU! :)
now, The Buzz from the Bees, (the bees in my garden have decided that they want to have a segment call The Buzz from the Bees about what is, or will be in flower :), so i'll let them tell you whats in flower)
|another wonderful view of those pretty flowers|
|The weird and wonderful Ruscus that the young human got off one of his orchid friends is flowering again too... but it weirds us bees out too much so we don't go near it.|
|we were excited to see an orchid in bud come in with the new orchids so it should be really interesting to see what the flower looks like, apparently it's a first time flowering seedling.|
|we also spotted the kid taking a photo of his Promenae today, apperently it has 2 flower spikes coming on it, see them? they are those weird white things wither side of the front bulb. he was very excited.|
|and finally, the big Dendrobium chrysotoxum is covered in buds that will turn into flower spikes, last years show was amazing so hopefully this years show is equally so, or maybe even better, legs cross (we bees don't have fingers you see?).|
Well, thats all from us bees and we aren't going to let that kid back near the blog again for the rest of tonight because he has study to do for his Geography examS, yes plural, tomorrow, and he better keep going.
so, may your gardens keep blooming, and why don't you appreciate us bees a bit more, we do some hard work.
