It's first day of October and that's our middle month of Spring. There's a clear bright blue sky today...
Flaunt Your Flowers meme and Noels' Hot, Loud and Proud meme.
The first of the Asiatic lilies (Lillium x hybrida) - Matisse Collection has opened. This is 'Dimension' with its stunning deep maroon flowers ... supposedly a Summer bloomer but it's getting a head start this year. Maybe it's the atypical rain we've been having!!
Another lovely Asiatic Lily that has opened up just yesterday is the gorgeous 'Vermeer'.
'Dazzle' opened up a few days ago and it catches everyone's eye.
Another dazzling thing that has happened in my garden this week is the emergence of more blooms on my African Tulip Tree - Spathodea campanulata. I have never seen it flower twice in the same year before ... I'm putting this one down to the strange weather we've had this year as well.
The Angelonias are in full bloom once more ... I just adore the white variety.
All of my New Guinea Impatiens are in full bloom right now as well ...
There's some great foliage colour in my Greenhouse/Shadehouse Garden at the moment, so I thought I would end off with a little glimpse into the tropical jungle out there.
