I presume every one of my readers is tired of hearing all about rain and the wet season, but unfortunately it still is not done! I was doing some reading and it seems as though La Nina years means that our wet season is wetter and later in the year. About three or four years ago I can remember everyone planting out over the Easter weekend and it was always dry and sunny by that time. I don't see it being dry and sunny by Easter this year, but I remain hopeful. We are having houseguests just after after Easter and I want the weather to be nice for their visit.
I ventured out into the soggy, muddy, mosquito ridden backyard to take some photos of what is in flower for this garden bloggers bloom day - I hope you have some repellent on, otherwise those mozzies will get you!
The variegated costus seems to be forming a halo above the bromeliad flower - doesn't it?
"When your roots are firmly planted in the ground your branches grow closer and closer to heaven."
the cats whiskers are starting to flower - the little honey-eaters love these and they are conveniently right next to the birdbath.
"bloom where you are planted", and I will endeavor to enjoy today and not wish my life away hoping the wet season will end soon.
