I was really amazed this year that our astral stock flower seems not to mind the hot summer we had and living right through it. We still had a few plants flowering here and there in the garden at the moment that were planted last fall. A good month for sowing astral stock seeds here in Adelaide.

Hoping for volunteers this year and picture as a reminder for not weeding it.
End of winter last year, astral stock growing among our Italian sprouting broccoli plants.
Oh! The white cabbage butterfly seems fond of the flower stock.
Got the pest distracted a bit so it won't bother the brassica that much.
Gone are the broccoli plants.

Psstt...my garden clock indicates that it is a good time to sow larkspur seeds now at Adelaide plain. This week we have so many larkspur volunteers popping in the garden.
Have a nice long weekend holiday!
