Out in the garden one of the poor wallaby-munched Dahlias has somehow managed to bloom and it's quite lovely.
All the Petunias and Marigolds have been blooming non-stop since August, but they've just recently all had a cut back as they were getting so leggy and ugly. I'm sure they will now bloom on for quite a few more weeks.
The Mussaendas are parading their striking colourful bracts and teensy weensy yellow star-shaped flowers.
Spathoglottis plicata, and Salvia farinacea 'Victoria Blue' make a pretty pair,
... as do the two variations of Poinciana blooms on display out at my front gate. There are Delonix regias standing on either side of the driveway into our place, and the colour of the flowers differ slightly. As you can see in the photo above, one of the trees has slightly more orangey blooms while the other has the usual darker red flowers. It's a great contrast!
Here's the orange blooms of the Poinciana on the right of the driveway ...
... and here are the red blooms of the Poinciana of the left side.
... the Hemerocallis continue to bloom,
... the Justicia brandegeana or red Shrimp Plant is still flowering,
... and the Galphimia glauca, or Gold Shower Shrub, is providing lots of yummy nectar for our native Blue-banded bees.
As we begin our Summer here in north-east Oz, sometimes our days can be bright clear blue-sky days ...
and then some days can be dark, dreary, overcast, leaden-grey cloudy days.
Typical weather as the 'wet' season approaches. It's almost here!
