Part Three is some of the flowers in my world in October
I thought I would segue with some Native Stingless Bees who absolutely love Hippeastrums. This season was fabulous for Hippeastrums.
This is a Hippeastrum my neighbour Geoff gave me. Have a look at my blog Geoffs Garden
He also gave me there brilliant orange Hippeastrums.
The Nasturtiums enjoyed a bit of rain.
Some of the red flowers were hard to get the colour right. Their mauve insides looked lovely
The Azaleas flowered well this year too.
The Gerbera flowered well too
I am sure this flower was looking back at me.
A new Bromiliad flowered showing its pink and blues.
The Blue Ginger was waiting to burst forth.
Celosia flowers are hard to photograph to show their brilliance
Same with red Celosia
Love the veins and purple flower
The White Hydrangea with its blue “buttons”
Grafton, the city near my place is the Jacaranda City. This is the road to my place.
The many little flowers of the Lomandra
When a Lolly Bush is in flower you follow the scent of lollies to find the flowers.
The Brilliant yellow of a water plant in my dam
Now for some native flowers that are around my place. Most of these flowers are smaller than your little finger nail
The Silky Oak flowers in the morning sun.
Native Frangipanni flowers in a pot near my front door. In the evening the scent of the flowers is heavenly.
Back to the tiny Native Flowers.
I love these tiny purple/blue star shaped flowers.
Some of the flowers are a bit hairy.
This native flower is so tiny.
Another star shaped purple flower
A Mistletoe in the afternoon sun.
Only Part Four to go….ready?
