Sturts Desert Pea

    Week1 (All the photos enlarge)SPBuds1w

  Week2InFlowerW2CU  Week3 SturtPeaW2 SturtPeaW3Don’t you just love them. A dear friend gave them to me last year when I was not well. Hers all died. She probably looked after them too well. I am sad to say that I neglected mine and can not believe the results. These gorgeous flowers State Emblem of South Australia normally grow out in the desert.

Sorry for the blog break. Have not been well – Fibromyalgia and a shoulder that I would like to give away. It keeps me awake at night and severely encroaches on my alert time for stitching. I am slowly getting on top of things and have found medication I am not allergic to.

Will post a few of the things I have been doing. Not anywhere near enough but little by little I’ll get there.

Here is my Lorraine Lea Rose in the side garden.

Beautiful flowers, Lynne. My Mum tried to grow Sturts Desert Pea here in Victoria. She had mixed results. They are a magnificent flower.
Your rose is gorgeous.
Sorry you haven't been well.
Take care

Oh I'd love to have a gorgeous flower like that in my yard, but I'm sure it wouldn't grow. So beautiful and so is the rose!

I too am sorry you haven't been well....I can sympathize with the Fibro (I've got that and either Lupus or RA...dr.s go back and forth)

I hope you are feeling better by now.
