Are you sure it is WINTER??? from Star's blog

Someone forget to tell the weather Gods it was winter today!!!!!!!!!!!

It was beautiful sunshine and a temperature of 21ºC. I spent most of the day out side pottering, a little bit of weeding, a little bit of cutting off dead leaves, a little bit of sweeping up and a lot of sitting in the warm sun and admiring the garden

I could hear the garden calling to me.

It was like a Spring day. As I walked around there was so much colour still in the garden...all the Hibiscus.

Orange ones.

Pink ones.

Cerise Pink ones.

Then there was a Canna Tropicana

My Iceberg roses are still giving me some buds.

Then there is the red carpet rose too.

Though we have had some nights down to 3ºC they still carry on.

There is the colour of the red Cordyline in the fern garden too.

I nearly forgot the Navel oranges, I only had 5 this year. The leaves always look ill but the fruit is OK

Then as you look across the patio towards the house there are the Impatiens

The Frangipanis are losing there leaves, some are still damaged from the hail storm a few weeks ago........but one bud is still trying to open in the warm sun.

I have my tomatoes and Frangipani seedlings in the sun to warm them up a bit.

I even have flowers on the tomatoes,hope they don't mind the cold nights....still they were self seeded so cost me nothing.

I then I tidied up a bit by the Budha water feature. Moved a few pot and swept up.

The sun was sinking in the west and coming in under the patio........time to go indoors before it starts to get cold.

With a bit of luck I will be able to do it all again tomorrow, the forcast is for an occasional shower and a top of 21ºC....................it's a hard life but someone has to do it.

 

I LOVE MY GARDEN.
