It's a glorious mid-Winter's day in my north-east corner of Downunder ... it's what I call a 'blue sky, blues goodbye!' day. The sky is clear, no clouds at all today as far as the eye can see ... and the sun is shining warmly ... the cool 15 deg C start this morning quickly turned into a lovely 24 deg C day!
My poor garden has not had much attention from me lately ... still in recovery mode ... but today I got out there just to take some shots of a few of the lovely flowers smiling at me today.
I was so pleased to see my neighbour's Tabebuia pallida covered in blooms. It stretches over into my yard and is visible from our Courtyard Garden ... such a gorgeous sight as I wandered out there this morning.
The Tabebuia impetiginosa that's growing in our Driveway Garden bed is still blooming ...
and leaving a carpet of beautiful pink trumpet-shaped flowers all over the leaf litter around the tree.
Back to the Courtyard Garden ... there are many plants beginning to flower now.
There's also different Petunias, Violas and Pansies flowering .... although it appears that in my abscence some greedy little caterpillars have been hard at work munching away at most of my violas and pansies. You just can't turn your back away for a minuter out there!!!
I'm loving the double purple and white Petunias this year.
Gazania, Osteospurmum and Gerbera are in bloom.
To finish off, there's my new 'Hot Pink' Pelargonium, Pentas, Turnea ulmifolia and Bracteanthas.
