Flower Flaunt on Friday ... on a drizzly end-of-autumn day.

I've haven't written a post for two weeks ... how time flies when you're busy at work!  The last couple of weeks have been extremely hectic, but I have managed some time in the garden over the weekends.  I couldn't miss flaunting some flowers today, so here's a quick look at some of the blooms out in the garden right now.

I've finally started potting up some annual seedlings and a few have started flowering.

The winter-blooming Euphorbia leucocephala or Snowflake Bush out in the courtyard garden  is showing its' first flowers.  If you look closely you will see the tiny star-shaped flowers in the centre of the white bracts.  This shrub makes a terrific sight when it's in full bloom.

Torenias or Wishbone Flowers are in bloom.  I love growing these beauties!

The hanging baskets of Impatiens walleriana out in the shadehouse garden have recovered very well from the long wet season earlier in the year, and are finally showing lots of blooms.

This New Guinea Impatiens hybrid has also started throwing out flowers once more.

Then there's my gorgeous hybrid Pelargonium.  It's pulled through so well and is flowering away beautifully once more.

  3. Beautiful and interesting blooms as usual. Glad you were able to get out into your gardens. Your photos always inspire me.


  4. Still lovely snapdragons and petunias! Have a grand weekend! Cathy

  5. Hi Bernie, Happy Friday (or Saturday as it might be by the time you read this!) All of your flowers look lovely, starting flowering annuals by seed is a great way to save $'s something I'm keen to try next year! Cheers, Jenni

  6. Love your plants! Love all the colors! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I love your blog!!!

  7. Hi Bernie, i am a bit depressed that i got the last link in Tootsie's so nobody saw my link, hehe. Anyway, both your dry tropics and bush garden (as if they are separate in space) are producing lots of lovely blooms. I love the leaves color of the impatiens, but those I.waleriana are very common also here. They get soaked in the rain.

  8. Hi Bernie. Your Pelargonium is just the most beautiful. I am wild about geraniums too so this one really catches my eye.So does the Torenia. It has such pretty colors in it.

  9. your flowers are making my heart sing!!!! I hope you had a great week...that next post is just fantastic too...what beautiful things you always share!
