Today the conditions here have reverted to the usual, familiar Winter weather. It's a bright, clear, blue-sky day. (Thought I'd take the photo looking from the bushland towards the house for a change!)
Clear blue sky wherever you look ...
Although we had a rather crisp, cool 7 deg C (44 deg F) start to the day ... which is a little unusual ... it has quickly warmed up to a lovely cool 20 deg C (68 deg F).
Focusing on the garden area in front of the house, there's a lot of red to be seen ... rather a lovely contrast to all that blue!!! ... and there's a touch of pink as well.
Snuggled in between all the Hibiscus shrubs is my faithful little Winter bloomer ... a dwarf Azalea.
Popping up in between the tall Hibiscus is Russelia equisetiformis, commonly known as the Firecracker Plant. It's thrown up long arching stems that sometimes appear in between the branches of the Hibiscus.
Snuggled way back in the rear of this garden bed, where it's hard to spot, is a lovely little pink Ixora ... Ixora 'Raywards Pink'.
Moving away from this front garden bed ... over to the stairway landing at the side of the house ... there's
some wonderful little Celosia plumosa showing their plumes.
To finish off with a splash of yellow now ... on the stairway landing there's also some lovely Gazanias showing their bright cheery faces.
