Garden in January

The Pohutukawa's that Jason and Michelle gave us money for last Christmas have flowered this year and are looking gorgeous. We also have a few swan plants that got stripped very early by Monarch caterpillars - a distinctive bright yellow and black striped caterpillar. Their chrysalis are a lovely green with a distinctive gold pattern on them - well they are Monarch's and all Monarch's need some bling!! Especially after all that effort they live for just 2-8 weeks.
