    It's been so darned dry in most parts of Australia this spring summer 2019!
    But I was absolutely thrilled to see 7!! flowers on two plants which all opened on this phase of the moon.
    I'm sure all my other plants are only weeks behind those first two.

    How are everyone else's DFs doing?

    During winter I ordered a pearl and an Aussie gold DF which got planted last Monday.
    So I now have many dark reds, a pink, some yellows, the pearl and the gold.
    I also have around 50 rooted cuttings off my plants just waiting for me to gather strength to put in posts to grow them on. One good thing about DFs is that the cuttings never die. They just get bigger while they lay under a bush waiting to be planted! :)

    We've had some wonderful yellow spiny ones already over the past month and about 6 still ripe for picking now on the vines. No new flowers or buds as yet on any of ours including the red-fleshed or pink ones but they are all doing well despite the horrible dry weather!

    Edit: I should add I'm in a sub-tropical climate...:)
