Lantana is so Pretty!

This is a close-up of Lantana growing in my Driveway.
It looks so pretty. However it does not do well when cut to put in a vase as it only seems to last a few days once cut.

I thought this photo would look nice instead of putting a photo of a Basket of Flowers on here today, the photo has come out very well as I am not the worlds best at taking photo’s but every now and then we seem to get a good one.

So I would encourage you today to take several photo’s of any special flowers that you have growing in your garden or maybe when you go for a walk….just a close-up sometimes can be very rewarding. Then if you save to your computer can be used to bless friends or others by printing out onto a card for them. If you take several the delete button is very helpful to take off the ones that are not so good. !!! Yes I have to delete quite a few.!!!

So – Lantana can look very nice in a display but may only last like I said just a couple of days before wilting.

The above basket of flowers was made to take to Church – the flowers are anchored down in Wet Oasis.

Beautiful Poinciana Tree

Lovely Shade from Poinciana Tree on our Driveway.

The Poinciana Tree is overhanging from my neighbour’s garden and has given us all this lovely shade and red blossoms on the pavers. Lots of seed pods still hanging from last Season. It is a beautiful spot to walk under and helps keep us cool from the 30 to 40 deg. heat. at this time of the year here in Carnarvon, Western Australia.

Here is a closeup photo of the Poinciana Flower

If picked to put in a vase, these flowers do not last very long, maybe a day or two but look very pretty if put in with some greenery.

Baked Egg Custard

Here is a Photo of the Lovely Passionfruit Flower.
This was growing in my garden followed by beautiful purple Passionfruit for us to eat and enjoy

Passionfruit can be eaten straight off the vine and can be used in many different ways.

  1. It is lovely to cut through the middle and eat the contents with a spoon.
  2. Also can scoop out the pulp and put over Ice-cream (best use Vanilla) to get the lovely taste of the Passionfruit.
  3. What about using a family size Pavlova putting cream on top and adding the Pulp of the Passionfruit on top of the cream.
  4. See picture below of Pavlova – for a lovely Afternoon Tea with friends or family.
  5. If you are used to making Lemon Butter it is good when cooking to add some Passionfruit Pulp to make a different kind of Spread for your toast or bread.
  6. You can of course make Passionfruit Butter on it’s own.
  7. Another way is put to the pulp (not too much) into your jug of Water of Lemon Water in the fridge and drink cold as a refreshing drink.
