Flower Flaunt on Friday - late Autumn in north-east Oz.

Autumn is drawing to a close and the usual Autumn weather has now kicked in!  The daytime temperatures have finally dipped below 30 deg C (86 deg F) ... some days we're getting down to 27 deg C!  The humidity has dropped waaayyy down ... around 50% these days!  The sun is out nearly all day, every day and the number of cloudy days are dropping. 

Let's have a look at what's blooming out in the garden today.

Senetti 'Magenta Biclolour' on the left and 'Baby Blue' on the right.

This is an unknown Orchid that I was given by a dear old lady who had no idea what this was ... the flowers are tiny - smaller than my thumb nail .... and I just love those tiny freckles!

 My gorgeous Cleome spinosa hybrid 'Senorita Rosalita' ... it just keeps on blooming.

Pelargoniums and Federation Daisy (Argyranthemum frutescens 'Sunray').

Scutellaria suffrutescens (Pink Texas Skullcap) and Passiflora.

This is one of my favourite hanging basket plants .... Nematanthus glabra  (Gold Fish Plant).

Finally, I thought I would just pay homage to the rather forgotten and unnoticed little blooms on my Coleus plants.  I rather love these little beauties ....

  8. Bernie I am so glad you like the coleus flowers like me. Most people don't let them flower but I think the little flowers deserve to be seen.
    At least I recognise all your plants as we grow those here during the summer months. Senetti has just finished flowering here though I don't have one in the garden this year.
    Thats such a sweet little orchid. I am thinking about starting to grow some that can cope with our UK climate. I only have one and its never multiplied. Have a lovely weekend

  11. I'm running late for FF visiting as I had to go into town and then the opposite direction up toward Mt. St. Helens to get my Grandsons.
    Your flowers are beautiful - you have some I'm not familiar with. I love the Cleome - I had one last year and was hoping it would come back.
    I'm so glad you stopped by, I love the company.
