The last week of the school holidays is over now, and work starts once more tomorrow. It's amazing how quickly the time flies when you don't have to set the alarm for an early morning!
The weather has been simply glorious. Whilst we call this time of the year 'winter', our northern tropical winters are very mild. Our daytime temps. have mostly been around 25-26 deg C (77-79 F) and we've had day after day of bright blue sky days.
Some of the blooms out this weekend include:
'Bonanza' Petunias ... my favourites.
A rather unusual looking Begonia semperflorens flower. It looks more like a daisy!
Eucharis amazonica. I love the delicate sweet perfume of these flowers.
Clerodendrum ugandense or Blue Butterfly Bush.
My favourite Impatiens walleriana - the double white.
Just as an aside: when we rose this morning we spotted two rather unusual garden visitors.
A Wedge-tailed Eagle and a Whistling Kite were enjoying a breakfast feast in the side yard.
