the Dragon Wing Begonias,
and the Cupheas, most of the other flowering plants are taking a break right now.
Out in one section of the rock garden down beside our driveway, the sunny Turnera ulmifolia is showing its blooms as it begins another flowering cycle.
My newly planted hot pink dwarf Hibiscus is almost ready to show off.
I just love the tiny wee flowers of my new Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Phantom Black'.
My Cordyline 'Purple King' had thrown out some budding flower sprays, and finally the little blooms are beginning to open.
It's time for the Schlumbergera to bloom. They are late Autumn into Winter bloomers here, so we don't usually refer to them as Christmas Cactus. They're more commonly known as Zygocactus. I adore the bright cerise pink flowers at this time of year. They really pack a punch.
The first blooms are appearing on the various Petunias I recently planted up in pots for the courtyard. Petunia 'Hot Lips' looks like it's going to add some fantastic colour with its burgundy and white flowers.
The first of the old Pansy 'Faces Mix' has opened up as well. My favourite time of the year is getting closer and closer!
