Gardening time is now reduced to an hour of watering in the morning or evening. Quite a few of my potted plants are coming to the end of their time, so there's not as much colour out in the Courtyard Garden any more. They have not flourished as well as last year, possibly due to the overcast, showery days we experiences throughout the Autumn to early Spring. The outdoor garden beds are drying up quickly ... and with the ongoing watering restrictions there's not a whole lot I can do about it. Thankfully the plants out there are survivors.
Anyway, right now the Lilies, the potted Salvias and Angelonias are powering on and still showing their lovely blooms. They don't mind the intense sunlight, the heat and the humidity ... and they survive on the occasional watering.
Hemerocallis 'Sabine Baur'
Oriental Lily - unknown variety
