What's On Show This Weekend ... November 28-29, 2015 ... end of Spring.

November is our last Spring month and our Summer officially begins in two days.  The conditions have already been quite summery for weeks now with daytime highs around 32 deg C and humidity levels rising to 60% in the middle of the day.

Our dry season continues on unabated and, despite a rather decent but very short-lived downpour of rain about two weeks ago, the surrounding bushland is very parched and rather brown. 

There are some lovely spots of colour around the garden, as usual.  That's the benefit in having quite a few plants that can withstand the dry conditions and the heat and humidity. 

The usual Spring bloomers are doing their usual thing!

Plumeria obtusa or Frangipani

Plumeria rubra or Frangipani

Lagerstroemia speciosa or Queen's Myrtle

Nerium oleander

Delonix regia or Poinciana

Delonix regia or Poinciana

They will all continue to bloom through most of the approaching Summer as well.

Blooms out in the courtyard garden at the moment include ...




Salvia splendens

Salvia farinacea

Salvia hybrids 'Love and Wishes' and 'Wendy's Wish'

Salvia farinacea

These too will continue to bloom through the early part of the Summer.

Elsewhere ...

Dietes grandiflora

Adenium obesum

double Gerbera
Justicia brandegeeana

Ixora 'Twilight Glow'

Thunbergia erecta 'Tru Blu'

Galphimia glauca

Ixora 'Golden Ball'

Turnera subulata

Tabernaemontana antidysenterica 'Arctic Snow'
So, Summer is on its way and we're waiting to see if there's a wet season coming along as well.
