Bromeliad, Tillandsia Cyanea, is starting to flaunt its showy flowers, like the bracts wouldn't already be attractive enough.
We are TWINS, Euphorbia Milii, apart from the Poinsettia, the Crown of Thorns is the most grown Euphorbia.
The debutantes are still dancing.....in the rain. The yellow Allamanda couldn't stand it any longer and has left, she sighed...promises, promises...
The papery, wet flowers of Camellia sasanqua. This Camellia doesn't mind the sun.
Curcuma sp. Someone had a seriously good meal out of this plant.
Always liked Elephant Ears, Colocasia esculenta, likes to soak up the rain. Various cultivars exist.
I like the feathery brushstrokes on these leaves. It likes to be admired in the shade.
The Lorikeets always come as couples. When they feed, their breast feathers get sticky so they go to the birdbath and wash themselves. If their is no "bathroom" around , the wet leaves of the trees are used. They are real clowns in the water, doing all these contortions until they are clean.
It is really fun to watch them.
Rainbow Lorikeet feeding on the nectar of Banksia flowers.
Angel Wing Begonia, Begonia coccinea. I love everything about this plant. It is easy to grow from cuttings. It has a graceful habit, long canes, beautiful flowers, the leaves are very attractive as well. This is a must have plant in my garden.
Believe it or not:
Come into the garden, Maud,
For the black bat, night, has flown
Come into the garden Maud,
I am here at the gate alone.
Alfred Lord Tennyson, "Maud" 1855
