Back in April 2015, like many places in Newcastle – the garden was damaged in the huge storm. A large Norfolk Island Hibiscus came down.

The damage has been cleared and while we were sad to lose the beautiful tree, the space cleared brought light into areas of the garden that were previously very shaded.

This week Chris noticed a beautiful flower from a Malaysian Apple Tree – flowering for the first time  due to receiving light now. Renewal can come through loss.
