The final installment of This is November. The flowers that appear in November are fabulous. The small native flowers shoot out of the ground for a short time. The garden is resplendent with most of the flowering shrubs a hive of activity as you saw in This is November: The Insects. Enjoy the flowers of November.
You saw the Jacaranda flowers in the This is October: Part Three Did you know that the Jacaranda flower is not only purple but white as well?
Some flowers are just made to be photographed.
A close-up shot of the Blue Salvia which the Lewins Honeyeater was feeding on in This is November: The Birds
A few drops of water and an early morning sun make for wonderful flower photography
The second flowering for some of the Grevilleas
The cactus had so many buds and flowers this year.
When the rain comes, the Crocus add splashes of colour throughout the garden.
One of the Day Lilys I was given by my mate Geoff. There is always a Stingless Bee flying around somewhere.
This orchid was at my besties sons place. An amazing cascade of flowers.
Here is the orchid flower
The Pandorea were flowering high in the canopy
My White Hydrangea has a pink hue
One of the best years for the Silk Tree flowering
The Roses at my besties are magnificent this year too.
And the scent is divine
The little yellow puff balls are everywhere
I love this Hibiscus which seems to have many names – I like Dancing Ballerina
The Lomandra growing on the forest floor has many flower spikes
The new leaves on the Paperbark are fabulous
The Paperbark was covered in white creamy flowers from top to bottom.
Growing in the paddock was a tiny yellow flower about 5mm in diameter. Once I saw this one I then noticed all the others.
The Bottlebrush flowers were their showy best this year. The Pink Bottlebrush flower is the second year it has flowered since planting about 10 years ago.
This is the red Bottlebrush flower I used as an experimental technique late last month
many people wanted to know what the bush looked like. Here is the Miniature Bottlebrush about 1.5M tall
The birds have been fighting over the Black Bean tree flowers
Have you ever seen a Pineapple flower? Now you have. I had no idea they had flowers like this
Last year, I found the Hyacinth Orchid growing in the forest at my place. I went looking again this year to where I thought it was but to no avail. Looking around my garden not only did I find one growing but two!
That’s the last post on This is November. I hoped you like all the posts.
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?
