Took a quick walk around the garden this morning....it was still quite early......but from the tinge of bright colour creeping into the morning hue, I could tell that it was going to be a beautiful day.
My new heliconia species was blooming for the first time.
The special baby croton was coming along nicely too.
My dwarf heliconia had a visitor. The good snail was hanging around....notice there are no bitten leaves.
What's this I spy? I hadn't noticed it before...the first flavour pepper from my tree....yipee.....pizza anyone?
The blue vervain wants to take over the entire garden bed....need to dry some leaves for tea.
White desert rose in all its glory, after a good dose of unused tea bag leaves. The abundant rainfall has damaged the frail flowers.
White mandevilla has had too much rain, hence the yellow leaves at the bottom
My new pride and joy......the Japanese privet seems to like under the Japanese fern tree.
I'm happy about the rainfall that we had, but I'm even happier now that the sun is shining again.....I don't have the heart to show you, but the grass needs cutting terribly.
I've got my week all planned out......weed....cut grass.......weed......cut grass.....cut grass....cut grass.
