Flower of the Day – First day of Autumn, 2018 – Alyssum in Wonderland

Also known as Alisons, Sweet Alyssum or Carpet of Snow this awesome little plant is normally a springtime flower here Down Under and generally dies off by the middle of Summer (December). Copious regular watering and hiding it from all but the late afternoon sun has ensured these have lasted in flower for the last 6 months! 🙂

I love how – up close – the flowers seem to have 6 little shining lamps around their centres! 😉

To give some idea of the scale of these tiny flowers this pot below is about 45cm across (18 inches).
