It's mid-Spring Downunder ... and I'm reminded of that age-old song I've often taught my young students "I Can Sing A Rainbow". You might know it ... it goes something like: Red and Yellow and Pink and Green, Purple and Orange and Blue. Well, at the moment, all these colours are appearing as the flowers open up.
At last I've sighted some blooms on my precious Jacaranda. I've always, always wanted a Jacaranda tree in my garden and when we first came to see this property I almost jumped for joy upon sighting one at the end of the driveway. The tree is still young ... and not in the most fertile spot on the property, so its' display is not all that breathtaking as I know they can be!!! But I still love this tree with its' magnificent purple-blue blooms.
The Hemerocallis is also starting to bloom now. Here's 'Archangel Eyes' ... the pale peach bloom with the pink centre and 'Velvet Eyes' ... the rich orangey-red bloom.
Another of the fabulous mid-Spring bloomers are the Asiatic Lilies ... such great colours. My favourite is that deep maroon of 'Dimension', but the bright yellow of 'Dazzle' really does light up a dreary corner of the garden and I just can't resist the allure of the soft pastel pink of 'Vermeer'.
Right ... I think that's covered most of the colours in the song. Oh ... hang on ... green! Well there's always lots of green around here. Green ... green ... green! This is why I love my pots and pots of colours ... other than green!
