Rain, rain go away...Come again another day...


Moody, hot and rainy;

Green, fresh and wet;

Elegant Thevetia;


and Christmas Lilies,

The scent of Gardenias;

dripping water;

So softly spoken...


full birdbath,

free enhancement;

Pink Pearls...


dripping Cannas;

Believe it or not:
The first wealth is health." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have a nice week!

Your garden is a paradise of this world. No matter if is rainy or sunny day it looks adorable. Your flowers are just breathtaking and there is no way I could say which flower I like the most. I love them all!
Have a nice week to you too!

So refreshing, Trudi. I could almost smell the gardenias as I took a leisurely stroll. What a garden! Beautiful in rain and shine.

I know rain is good for the garden but sometimes you can have too much. Your plants are enjoying it though and looking very beautiful!

Barbarapc said...

Thank you for my little bit of sunshine. I swear I could smell those lilies.

Mo said...

Reminds me of our own glorious summer monsoons, so very welcome when they finally arrive! Lovely. :)

Barbara said...

So frisch und üppig blühend kann ein Garten nur sein, wenn er auch genügend Nass bekommt, wie deine schönen Bilder beweisen. Wie ist es denn bei euch, habt ihr oft Regen zu dieser Jahreszeit? Sind es sanfte Regengüsse oder richtige Gewitter? Ich stelle mir gerade den wunderbaren und starken Duft der Gardenia vor, die ich mal als Zimmerpflanze hatte. Mmmh...das lässt mich für einen Moment das nieslige, kalte Wetter hier vergessen.
Ich wünsche dir eine gute Woche und grüsse dich herzlich,
Barbara (mit etwas viel um die Ohren im Moment!)

Beautiful pictures -
I am still coming to terms with the fact that you have summer and we have winter!

Thank you for your comment on my mushroom blog. Now I have two admirer.
Keep dead wood in your garden and fungi will grow;)
I should post pictures from my trip to the temperest forests of Alaska. This trip inspired me to learn more about Fungi or Mycota &
To showcase and share my pictures I created my new mushroom blog;)

Love your beautiful pictures and wonderful flowers.
I am surprised about your lush garden. Other Australian blogs I visit from time to time look so dry.
Enjoy your garden..we got some snow this morning.
That is nice too..

Oh, water isn't equitable - it usually comes too much or too little:] Your pics are beautiful and not least because of water drops;) Have a nice week you too!

Hi Trudi, What a wonderful stroll through your lovely and drippy garden. It is hard for me to wrap my mind around the opposite seasons you have from us in the U.S. but so fun to think about the difference.

So many stunning blooms and fragrances going on in your beautiful garden.

Thank you for popping over at blotanical to wish me B'day greetings.

Have a nice rest of the week!

Thank you medam for your kind comment.

Kanak thank you for your visit.

Easygardener, we had a wet spring and it seems there is no end to it, I love it and the plants love it too!

Barbarapc, thank you for stopping by.

Mo, yes you are right, thanks for your comment.

Barbara, Wenn es regnet im Fruehling und im Herbst sind es immer sehr heftige Gewitter, meistens jeden Tag. Es gibt auch trockene Jahre diese sind furchtbar; Dieses Jahr war oder ist immer noch fantastisch. Giessen ist nicht genug in diesem heissen Klimat es muss "schuetten"! Take it easy, Barbara.

Hi Karen thank your for your comment.

Chaiselongue, Yes I am very much so, thanks for stopping by.

guild-rez, yes do this it would be very interesting to see. Your mushroom blog is very interesting and the photos are so beautiful.
I live in a valley, were we generally get more rain.

Inkivaeari, thank you. This spring are lots of storms, some brought devastation in the Brisbane area.

Meems thank you for visiting.

Blossom said...

Your summertime photos are wonderful. It's so easy for me to forget that you are enjoying summer now :) Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos!

Louise said...

How very, very beautiful! The colors and differences in each bloom are wonderful.

Elfe said...

So nice even if it is raining. J take a little bit of your summer with me to Swizterland, okay?
Have a nice weekend.

HappyMouffetard said...

It does the heart good to see such beautiful blooms whilst we have frosts and snow. Not long until Spring, I keep telling myself...

LadyLuz said...

I can almost feel the humidity and smell the exotic aromas.

Love the R.W. Emerson quote, so simple, so succinct.

Happy gardening.

Kerri said...

I'm drooling over your beautiful blooms, especially the daylilies!
Your photos are so lovely. Thanks for the stroll among the flowers :)
The only thing that could make it better would be to be there in person, strolling and chatting with you :)
