Sure are Christa.  I copied how Dianne uses the little salvia's in among the showy flowers.  I was quite pleased.  Roses do alright for me provided I look after them.  When we first got here I planted heaps out the front but then got busy with work and new baby and didn't look after them for a good 2-3 years.  Have slowly been replacing the old, not healthy ones but have 4 older ones still left.  I'm looking for the ones now with good disease resistance and they must either be super fragrant or last long as a cut flower.  I take my phone with me and check the varieties against the Trealor website before I buy them.

Susan, that pink rose and those salvias are beautiful,  with a white chrysanthemum as well.  It is lovely to have house flowers.   I have not seen those salvias before, are they the ones you bought when you spoilt yourself recently.    Roses are bad luck for me, a long story, but salvias are my favourite.   There are some that are good cut flowers.   A friend of mine used to make flowers arrangements out of whatever I had in the garden, coloured leaves, sticks etc. they looked good.

Lovely Bouquet Susan, sounds like you would rather be at home with your flowers than at work...

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
