Here we are, it's time for Flaunt Your Flowers/Fertiliser Friday ... and what a dismal day it is here! We've had more rain, thunderstorms and practically no sunshine for quite some time. I find myself wishing for and dreaming of our usual bright, sunny Spring days once more.
Some plants are suffering ... as these are not the usual weather conditions here at this time of year ... but not the Plumeria. It's showing off some lovely flowers. I just had to include a shot of the petals from the back as well ... it's such a pretty sight.
One thing that is still putting on a show are my Hemerocallis - Daylilies. However, I've had a surprise this year. The latest bloom is supposed to be Hemerocallis 'Bela Lugosi'. This is the bloom that opened up a week ago on the plant ... as it did last year.
However, this week, the plant has thrown up flowers that look like this ...
... it's from the same plant, so my question is ... huh? There are a couple of flower spikes on this plant, so I'm looking forward to seeing what blooms next.
Elsewhere, around the garden:
Dypsis lutescens - Golden Cane Palm in flower
variegated New Guinea Impatiens
Murraya paniculata, or what we call Mock Orange
Finally, the Marigolds ... they are craving some decent sunlight.
Around the property and out in the bushland, there are Eucalyptus trees in flower ...
...and some of them are attracting quite a bit of birdlife.
Spot the Rainbow Lorikeet!
The beautiful Pale-Headed Rosella ... sorry the photo is not all that clear. They were a little way off and it was a very dreary day.
The Scaly-Breasted Lorikeet ... the only Lorikeet with a completely green head!
I swear this fellow was just showing off for the camera!!!
