The glorious Autumn days continue with fabulous blue skies and comfy temperatures. I'm now committed to my usual 'dry' season watering schedule as we've only had one day of showers in seven weeks now. I find the handheld-hose watering very relaxing after a long day's work though, and look forward to that task at the end of the day.
So onto what's blooming around the place today.
I'm finding Ruellia tweediana popping up in several corners of our property. I'm thinking of actually transplanting some of them to a few little spots down the driveway in the hope they will spread and fill in some of the holes.
I'm now seeing some of the Petunia blooms out in the courtyard.
I'm really looking forward to seeing more of these 'Giant Victorious' blooms. The first few are certainly quite large.
My old favourites, 'Stars Mixed', are starting their show. Of course, I'm rather partial to the purple!
The new addition this year, 'Hot Lips', is fast becoming another favourite.
What else is on show out in the courtyard?
and there are flowers on my Dracaena godseffiana of Gold Dust Dracaena.
Elsewhere around my place ...
Out in the shadehouse, the usuals are blooming.
and the blooms on this unknown plant, that popped up in amongst some pass-along Orchids, are on show once again. They are sweet little flowers, and so tiny! I wish I knew what this plant is!
Out in the tiered garden beds, that sit just outside the shadehouse garden door ....
Last of all, I have two new additions for one of the rock garden sections out along the driveway. I've been on the lookout for a couple more Turnera subulata and I was lucky enough to find some during the week during one of my pop-in nursery visits!
