In the Shadehouse Garden, there are the beautiful perfumed blooms of the white Ginger, Hedychium coronarium ...
... along with the blooming cones of another Ginger, Costus productus,
... and the Ginger known as Globba winitii.
There was a surprise bloomer out in the tiered garden beds in front of the shadehouse. Completely out-of-season, the Hemerocallis 'Picotee Bubbles' has suddenly bloomed. I'm not sure why this is so. It's never happened before. Imagine my surprise when I spotted this yesterday!
In the same garden bed the last of the Lagerstroemia indica flowers are on show ...
... and there are still flowerheads appearing on the Callistemon 'Pink Champagne'.
Elsewhere on the property ...
I've been taken aback by the length of the flowering period for this patch of Cosmos sulphureus. They just keep on keeping on.
The Ixora 'Golden Ball', out in the driveway rock garden, is finally blooming and I just love the creamy yellow.
Mussaenda philippica 'Bangkok Rose' is coming to the end of another blooming cycle.
The various Pentas lanceolatas continue on, as they are all-year round bloomers.
Scutellaria suffretescens blooms in cycles all year round too. It's coming into another full bloom period.
The Golden Rain Tree has both yellow flowers and the peachy coloured bracts on it at the moment ... blooming and seeding all at the same time.
Out under the pergola next to the Courtyard Garden, I've spotted a couple of Jasminum officinale flowers. It's fantastic to see the climber coming back after its ordeal last year.
The delicate sweet perfume of the Fiddlewood blooms stills wafts around the courtyard ...
... and our native Sterculia quadrifida or Peanut Tree growing the middle of the courtyard is now flowering and dropping its leaves.
Out in the surrounding bushland the magnificent Melaleucas are blooming, and these stands on the hillside across from our place are quite noticeable with their brilliant creamy white flowers.
