    1. The Olde World Lilies are just magnificent, Lona. They tower above the others and have the best perfume. It's great to see the Mandevilla blooming again. It was cut back rather severely earlier in the year, and it's struggled through the dry season ever since.

    1. Lol, Sue, there's lots of colour out in the courtyard at the moment. I'm soaking it all up before the blooms start to wilt in the summer sun.

    1. Joanne, my old Canon still does a pretty good job. I'm lucky the old thing is still powering on.

  6. Hi Bernie!
    Your lily blooms are exquisite. I started planting a few day lilies last year but they didn't do very well because of the heat and dryness. I am hoping this next year they will be bigger and better.
    Summer starting for you but fall and winter here. A lot of the trees are all ready in bare mode but mine are holding on until its freezing so I will have to mow in the cold! I need to move to OZ!

    1. Jean, mine started off quite slowly too. They did come through the heat and dryness here though, and two years later they're starting to really take off. I think mine will be getting bigger and better from now on.

      No mowing in the cold here. But I can tell you, mowing in the heat is pretty awful too!

    1. Yes, Hamilton, these are all in my garden. I really only have three decent garden spaces, and most of these blooming plants grow in pots out in my courtyard.

    1. Gwennie, the Dietes love heat and humidity. Originally from South Africe, they're a very hardy plant and tolerate our tough Aussie conditions very well.

  10. Hi Bernie, Since we are heading into winter here in Canada, your spring blooms are wonderful. Have a wonderful day and take care.

  11. As I cut down my browing lily stalks and cleaned up the garden for winter, it is so great to see all of those lovely blooms. It is a reminder of what is to come next spring and summer.

  18. Hi Bernie, i haven't seen you for a while, hehe! Your hemerocallis maybe one thing that differentiates our tropical setting. You can have it and we don't!
