some summer pics , what more can be said. After being to John's winter wonderland , I needed some summer pics.

a sleeping bumble bee


wild garlic and orchids complementing each other



no need to guess what this is , check out the drop of water


really love the bumblebee



sunlight on Nicole





two arums are better than one




these red daliahs happy up my garden




and make the bees happy too




summer is all about buds



I've never had so many on the Durban July before.




I've been good this year , with Epsom Salts and compost and liquid fertilizer



agapanthus in progress




some grass on death row .. in time




corrianda soften the beds and add a wonderful smell when watered
mental note to add more randomly to all the beds




fantastic fressia


happy blogging

  4. Beautiful post! I love the bouquet of garlic & orchids, the agapanthus is beautiful and I am crazy about the Durban rose. I'm going to have to try and find something similar here. :)

    Hi John , glad you enjoyed the post , how long does winter last by you ?

    Hi Rebbecca , Noelle (azplantlady) has a rose that also changes color, check out her site. As far as I could tell , the Durban July is unique to South Africa

    Hi Noelle
