Hi Randy, :)

They don't have a perfume I can smell, but they do have some nectar at the base of the flowers as they open up & the bees & Noisy Miners have discovered it, & now the Lorikeets have noticed the attraction & pull the petals off to get to it. :rolleyes:

I have a Euphorbia with large green flower heads that stinks if taken indoors & seems to attract blowflies.

Hey Yvonne,
sounds like you might need a Scarecrow from time to time :)
I had to look up Noisy Miners, but have heard of Lorikeets, and they are bursting with color and wouldn't want to scare them away...too pretty!

Each Spring some wild Hyacinths spring up here and there, the fragrance is amazing.
But taking some inside they don't last longer than a day. And I don't know how to propagate them outside. It's just natures way, I reckon.
I even thought about putting some crime tape around them so they wouldn't get mown over ;)

Hi Folks, :)

Hi Randy, :confused:

Yes the Noisy Miners have become a pest, first the Indian Mynas drove Sparrows out of our area, then the Noisy ones drove out the Blackbirds, we even had an Eastern Spinebill visiting our garden, now we just have Magpies, Parrots & Miners, not to mention Pigeons from a breeder a block away.

Have you thought of trying to dig up the Hyacinths with the bulbs & trying to transplant them ?

Evening alll.... trying to find my way around these new digs.
So far not too bad.

I'm wondering if they change the coffee in here as well. I'll put the new pots on and away we go.

Hi Harry, :)

Great to see you pop in, (y)
Hope you're keeping fairly well these days.

Those coffee machines look great, although I don't drink much coffee myself,
I was hinting at TSG coffee shop.

Hiya Harry!

Hope all is going well with everyone! I am expecting to be a great-grandfather by the end of the week. I'm too young for this! ;-)
