Flaunt Your Flowers/Fertiliser Friday meme, Mary for her Mosaic Monday meme and Today's Flowers with my post today.
I would encourage you to pop over to these blogs and enjoy the posts.
As I was strolling along the little pathway to the courtyard ...
off to my right, I noticed the first coloured bracts on my variegated Bougainvillea, which had to be trimmed back severely in the post-cyclone clean-up.
My Zygocactus is showing off at the moment and makes an eye-catching display on the wooden table in the centre of the courtyard.
There is quite a bit of colour from foliage plants as well, and not just from the annuals which are starting to make themselves known at long last.
There's a little pot of Lavender and Lobelia which just can't go unnoticed.
As I wander on into the house and out into the shadehouse garden,
The Dragon Wing Begonias power on in all conditions, wet and dry. I just wouldn't be without them.
Wandering through the shadehouse garden, I stop to take a look at the tiered garden bed just outside.
The Iresine herbstii 'Blazin Rose' is simply covered in spikes of white flowers ....
... and a few of the old faithfuls are still carrying on as usual. Mandevilla 'White Fanstasy', Euphorbia pulcherrima, Cuphea hyssopifolia, Pentas and Gerbera.
