Maidenhair madness! 🌿✨ I love visiting my friend’s home and admire his fern, growing on his front patio. Situated in east-facing light, so lovely soft dappled morning light. He has a really efficient drip irrigation system installed of course. Oh engineers! 😅 #maidenhairfern#fern#maidenhair#dripirrigation#plantlife
also, some bees we spotted enjoying the nectar on a Grevillea 'Lana Marie' - perhaps a good plant to have a around if you're thinking about getting into urban beekeeping? It flowers all year round x

Bees are still on our mind - and watching them collect pollen from passion flowers is a really beautiful experience. You get to see the importance of their role in the plants reproduction play out so clearly ~ without the bees the flowers centre structure makes it tricky for the pollen to reach its stigma.
And so the bees duck beneath the upside down anthers to collect pollen and, surely, fertilise the flowers as their bodies brush past the stigma 💛
