Ferlitizer Friday/Flaunt Your Flowers
Right now in my corner of north-east Downunder ... it's the last month of Autumn and the first bloom on my so-well-loved Bauhinia Variegata 'Alba' has appeared.
There are blooms on the Bracteantha bracteata, also known as Helichrysum bracteatum, or as they're commonly known ... Paper Daisies. These are from the seeds grown from last year's flowers.
One of my favourites ... the Gomphrena globosa is showing it's beauty. Some may know it as Globe Amaranth, but here it's common name is Bachelor's Buttons.
At this point I'd like to sing the praises of a blogger from Malaysia ... Jacqueline has a very informative blog that I often visit when I'm wondering about the right conditions for plants in my garden. This blog has a terrific tropical plant database which I find so easy to read and really helpful. They have a great post on the Gomphrena if anyone is interested .... John & Jacq's Garden
Back to my garden ... the last blooms I'm adding this Friday are the vibrant New Guinea Impatiens which are adding bright spots out in the Courtyard Garden right now.
