Cool banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

This grevillea ('Peaches and Cream'?) likes to "sprawl out".
They do very well in our alkaline soil with minimal water.

I'm sorry, I couldn't locate the pic for the banner, but
here are others from this year's blooms,
and a slideshow. Smiling

Fantastic, Cal. These blooms look so exotic to my eyes. After consuming your own photos, I had to go to google for images of "Grevillea" and feast my eyes some more. Great job capturing the color range in your banner shot. I tip my hat to you. Hurray! Thumbs up

Thank you Elizabeth!
I'm very fortunate to be able to grow these beauties,
and to have friends like all of you. Smiling

I just went down to get some more pics before it gets
too hot....we have heat wave this week. Sticking tongue out

This is a different grevillea....can't remember the name.
It also has candy-like blooms.
But grows much larger, and the leaves are more like pine needles than the fern-like
leaves of 'Peaches n Cream'.
I'll have to cut it back this fall.
They're bee magnets, too.

BTW, Thank you, Australia, for these amazing plants! Thumbs up

Like Elizabeth, I had to go roam the internet for more pictures of this exotic plant! Your Peaches And Cream reminds me of cotton candy or pink and yellow lemonade! Such a yummy looking flower. Smiling Are they fragrant?

Not that I can't detect, but maybe someone else can.
That would be awesome if they were. Smiling
