The weather lately has been slightly odd. After getting so excited last week that the blue-sky sunny days had returned after so many overcast, dreary days, there was a return to the dismal weather with lots and lots of oh-so-sombre skies. Our Winter skies have been strewn with dark clouds quite often this month and we've even had the occasional light shower of rain. This is not normal!! This is the time of year when we're supposed to be seeing endless days of bright blue clear skies ... but instead ... this was the view from the verandah again today.
To end this Mosaic Monday post, I'm adding photos of some great foliage plants that add such wonderful colour to the garden on these dreary days.
Here's a touch of pink and green with (clockwise from top left) Hibiscus rosa-sinensis 'Roseflake', Cordyline fruticosa 'Morning Sunshine', Rhoeo spathacea 'Candy Stripe' and Acalypha godseffiana 'Firestorm' ...
Hypoestes and variegated Nasturtium leaves.
I'm joining in two memes today, so please go on over and have a peek at some fabulous posts at Mary's Mosaic Monday meme and Noelle's Monthly Garden Bouquet meme.
