My garden is still in the doldrums. Today I finally planted my daffodil bulbs - somewhat later than planned, but they should be OK. Mark has been busy planting garlic and a whole swag of winter veggies.
The quinces are all picked and I have made quince paste. We had to pick them early because the birds were getting at them. They are currently laid out and I am waiting for them to ripen a bit. I did make a beautiful quince upside down cake which Don is sneaking at every chance.
Meanwhile I have some more Bali shots to show you. Flowers abound in Bali and many of the blooms that we struggle to grow successfully here, grow everywhere in Bali. Flowers are a very important part of Bali life and are used etensively in the daily offerings that are made to the household god. Huge baskets of loose flowers are sold at the local produce markets and the Balinese purchase fresh flowers for their daily offerings or buy readymade offerings.
And these are some of the floral arrangements on sale.
And my favourite, the Bauhinia tree.
