Anyhoo ... I finally did get a shot of our recent visitors face. As some might know, I had an interesting visitor drop by this week to spend time sitting in my water plant container.
Yes, that's the face of that lovable Scrub Python that made itself at home for four days out in my courtyard. It's gone now, probably had to go off searching for something tasty to eat. Thank goodness, because I wasn't too keen on getting close in order to grab the hand held hose that I needed to water all my potted courtyard plants. The poor things looked a little parched by the end of the week, but I've managed to give them a good long drink this morning.
There's actually not much blooming around here at the moment. I've had a huge battle with mealy bugs in most of my potted plants in the courtyard over the last month or so, and I've now resorted to cutting everything back to bare bones. Elsewhere, the long dry season has taken its toll, and most plants are looking less than their best.
Thank goodness for the Hibiscus blooms that are always present around my place. I appreciate them more when there's not much else to see.
Out in courtyard, the Petrea volubilis that drapes over the pergola is throwing out the last of its wonderful purple blooms.
Down the driveway, the Delonix regia has started blooming,
and in the tiered garden beds my Adenium obesum is showing off its gorgeous flowers as well.
There are also a few Planchonie careya or Cocky Apple blooms to be spotted either on the couple of small trees on my property, or on the trees growing in the surrounding bushland and neighbourhood.
I'm joining Tootsie for Fertilizer Friday / Flaunt Your Flowers
