These very, very occasional showers of rain are typical of our 'dry' season ... they barely touch the ground! We don't really count them at all as their only worth is that they are refreshing and there's that faint smell of rain in the air.
Around my semi-rural neighbourhood, in people's yards and in the surrounding bushland, one of my favourite native winter bloomers is putting on a terrific display right now. These are the blooms of our native Silk Cotton Tree ... Bombax ceipa leiocarpum.
Now to the blooms at my place. There's a few little sprays on my two dwarf variegated Bougainvilleas.
My gorgeous Dietes bicolor continues to throw out flowers every now and then.
The Dianthera nodosa or Pink Lady Fingers is showing its last blooms at the moment.
The all-year-round blooming Hibiscus rosa-sinensis shrubs continue doing their thing.
The Russelias never stop flowering.
The Euphorbia pulcherrimas continue their winter show.
Now a little video clip to show some of the other blooms around the place today.
That's a quick run down on the blooms here in my north-eastern corner of Australia for this first week of our last winter month and mid 'dry' season.
