Mosaic Monday ... A Pinch And A Punch Of Pink and Purple


Here we are ... it's the beginning of April, our mid-Autumn month and there's some pink and purple out in the shadehouse and courtyard gardens.  Finally the skies have cleared and the rain has finished ... but the garden is looking a little drab.  So it's great to see these soft splashes of colour in a garden that's slowed down considerably after our 'wet' season.




I'm joining Mary for her Mosaic Monday meme.

    1. Val, I don't have many Orchids but I do so love this one. It just powers on despite the lack of care and attention from me.

    1. Thanks Vee. It does look like the dry season has set in now. We've had great sunny clear blue-sky days for a week or so now.

  13. Lovely colours Bernie, those orchids are stunning, fantastic photography.
    Do you still get that quick editing tool underneath your blogs? Mine have disappeared for some time now and I have asked why and never get an answer. Have a lovely April.

    1. Hi Marguerite. I had to scroll down and check, but that quick editing tool is no longer at the bottom of my blog posts. Seems to have disappeared. eBlogger must have just made a decision to remove it and that was that.

    1. Thanks Diane. No raindrops though, just the hose water drops. Thankfully the rainy season seems to have finished up for this year. It becomes a little hard to put up with when it goes on for months.

  22. Thank you Bernie for your reply. It is still in the options at settings so I wonder if it is a temporary hicup. We will find out. Your music is lovely.

  24. Hi Bernie. Blooming might have slowed because of the rain but what you have is still beautiful. Things here are in gear blooming away because of the warm early spring. The azaleas have been outstanding this year.
