There was the chance of some decent rain coming our way with Cyclone Tim heading towards our coastline. Unfortunately the chance went begging, as 'Tiny Tim' (as we've dubbed the weather system) deteriorated into an ex-cylcone with very little oomph! It crossed the coast further north and has only bought us a few showers of rain, with absolutely no heavy rain whatsoever. So 'Tiny Tim' has tiptoed through here with little effect. Still, I've enjoyed the sprinkling of rain we've had over the last two days.
I've noticed the Acacia simsii out in the bushland has started blooming.
It has the most spectacular little golden puffs for flowers.
Out in the shadehouse garden I discovered this weed has sprung up while I was clearing out last weekend. It's unfortunate that this Passiflora, Passiflora foetida or Stinking Passionfruit, is such an environmental thug, because it does have a beautiful flower.
My Dendrobium bigibbum (such an unfortunate name!!!) has begun blooming again right on schedule.
My purple Anthurium is always blooming and is one of my favourite sights in the shadehouse garden.
My Aeschynanthus lobbianus or Lipstick Plant continues to show off its remarkable blooms in the shadehouse as well.
Down beside the driveway I have two of these fabulous Turnera subulata shrubs putting on a show during the day. The lovely creamy white flowers close up when the sun sets and only open once the sun has risen a fair way the next morning.
Thunbergia erecta 'Tru Blu' has lots of gorgeous bluey-purple flowers at the moment.
My wonderful Jasminum officinale is still blooming and filling the courtyard with its sweet fragrance.
Out in the courtyard garden, the Salvia splendens hybrids have started blooming again after their drastic cut back.
