    Looks like the roses are surviving. It’s a shame we’re never around when the fruit are all ready. At least the family get to enjoy them all and sell some to.

    A strange hole has appeared in our garden... about 2 inches diameter and looks pretty deep.



    Any ideas what could be down there?

    I tried to get the littlun to stick her hand down and wiggle her fingers, but she wasn't interested.

    Dan could certainly smell something...



    And Yogi had a half-hearted attempt at digging it out...



    But whatever it is, is still down there.

    ^ I wondered about that, but the soil is quite hard just there. However we did see a small rat snake close to there a few days ago...

    I thought maybe a crab?

    Nice flowering tree. Pic courtesy of sister in law. I’m glad I gave here a new phone last year her pics are pretty good now.

    Sat on the back terrace having my coffee this morning, enjoying the colours and contrasts. The yellow flowered tree is in a neighbours property.

    Looks like a rats nest to me,had them appear overnight in our garden a few years ago after flooding around our house they came from a rubbish bin storage area near our house and also at a home i rented a few years ago without any flooding the same type of hole appeared and it was a large rat that made it

    ^ I've never seen rats around our place but we get a few mice, probably due to the chicken feed.

    I checked the next day and this hole had been completely dug out by the dogs, so whatever was down there remains a mystery.

    It must have either run, hopped or slithered away, or been eaten.

    First of my Apple Mango's to ripen. My hands are XXL. And we all know what they say about men with big hands.

    Not sure the name of this shrub but I was told they are not very common and hard to grow to be very large. I planted this about 3 years ago. It struggled then finally caught on and is growing well. Those flowers have such a strong very nice smell. You can smell it all over the yard.



    This flowering tree also gives off a strong very nice aroma. This one is really unique in that the flower changes color. It starts out above as white



    3 or so days later it starts changing and become a lavender color



    by day 7 its fully purple in color

    Thanks. I will look it up. I found the shrub in Korat when I was working there at this nursery. 100bht. It had 1 flower but I liked the smell and took it back to my Condo and grew it in my kitchen window.

    Thanks, I have never seen one outside of mine and my admin at the company I worked at was the one who told me they are not to common and was also the one who told me they are hard to grow to be very large. She said they are picky on their location.

    I am just glad to see it grow. All those flowers blooming at the same time was pretty strong. I could smell it in my my shop which is a good distance away. Interesting too, there are not any bees on the flowers. Most our other flowering trees and shrubs are full of butterflies, bumblebees and honey bees.

    Well that's true to an extent because they need lots of sun.

    However there's quite a bit of that around.

    Lots of info here...

    It certainly looks like a jasmine and the fragrance you describe suggests it is.
    I used to have some in the UK years ago and I have been looking for some here. I have seen plants here I thought might be jasmine but they turned out simply to be random white flowers. I have asked at four local plant shops and none of them had any jasmine or made any offer to get some. I'd have thought it would be more popular.

    .
    There are many different sorts of jasmine, the common climbing jasmine is easy to grow but the bush type is a bit fussier.

    I cannot see your attachment. I am interested, I'd be happy with something similar to jasmine. Maybe I have been asking for the wrong thing.
