Currumbin Valley; Queensland, Australia
What a great display. I do love colour in the garden. Foliage can be enjoyable too - but colour provides the excitement for me.
I feel like I just visited a rainbow. the colors are beautiful and vibrant. Its dark and rainy here so this was a treat.
Beautiful Colours in your garden and in winter too. Your plants flower before mine even in the same area of QLD. My garden gets a lot of shade in winter That is probably why.Blogger, Denise, had some flowers at her son's wedding that she didn't know what they are called. I thought you might be able to help her. I thought they looked like a type of Banksia but I'm not sure and would they have them in USA? Here is her post site:http://anenglishgirlrambles.blogspot.com/2009/07/flowers-at-reception.html
Titania, I'm always impressed when I see someone growing Tibouchina. I really must get one! Your sedum is lovely (I love any and all succulents) and I don't know the Dichorisandra (but it makes a great show).PS My baby Tilladsias are in vermiculite now, doing ok.
Sparkling colours to brighten my day! And I love that proverb - so very true...everywhere I look there are weeds...Katarina
easygardener; thank you for your visit. I love the strong colours how they stand out and make a statement.Debbie's Garden; Thank you Debbie. I think the strong colours have a place in the garden. They certainly have in my garden.Diane; thank you Diane. We had to cut many trees because it was just getting to dark in the garden. Unfortunately two huge silky oaks, one big Poinciana and a very tall Chinese doll had to go. I am always very reluctant to cut a tree. I still have two areas were tall trees can grow!Prospero, thank you. Tibouchinas are wonderful and there are so many to choose from, Kathleen is a wonderful open shrub with pink flowers. Alstonville was bred on the far North coast of New south Wales. It is one of the best. The one in the photo has huge flowers but I do not know its name. Jules is a dwarf one and makes a great show. I am sure there are some in your country I do not know. They all respond well to pruning. Katarina, so true!
You have every color of the rainbow! I especially like Dichorisandra thyrisflora -- such lovely flowers.
Titania I love that old Spanish proverb. It is so true. Enjoyed your rainbow of flowers!
You do have amazing color in your garden. You must lead a very spicy life!
What a beautiful and varied array of colours in your garden! The orange rose is lovely. Great proverb, too - so true.
Yes, those are lovely colors! I'm not familiar with several of them. They sure are pretty!
Beautiful colours. Often we need to look at them in isolation to really appreciate their colours.More colour than in my cold Canberra garden as the moment.
I just love your colours! The first and the last~~~~stunning!!
Hi Titania, what fabulous colors! Some of the plants are unfamiliar, but I do know those colors. Love them all. :-)Frances
I can live with those spices Titania. Beautiful flowers around your garden complete with scientific names.Will you visit me here please?Thank You very much.
What a refreshing post with your beautiful and vibrant blooms.
Hello Titania,thank´s for visit, but the Magnolia must die.LG,Helga
Wonderful flowers, as always! And yes, in my garden a whole lot of lot grows without me sowing...
Titania, this is a fine and very enjoyable sequence of pictures. It's so interesting you've written the name of each flower!
What a eyeful, Trudi! if this is what your winter is like what must your spring / summer be like!That Dichorisandra is so pretty. What a lovely blue.
What lovely pictures of your flowers! I have discovered new ones, learned the names of some, and thouroughly enyoed the visit.
.....bunt ist gesund :)Grüßle, Heidi
Nebst deinen bunten Blumen hat es mir das spanische Sprichwort sehr angetan. Beim Lesen dachte ich bloss "wie wahr", erlebe ich doch jedesmal wenn ich im Garten werkele, dass ich auf etwas Neues stosse. Wind und Vögel sei Dank....sofern es kein hartnäckiges Wildkraut ist, dem ich seit einem Monat versuche den Garaus zu machen ;-) !!Liebe Sommergrüsse,Barbara
I love the last flower - Dichorisandra thyrisflora. Wonderful colour. Nice scent too?? I am surprised that all your plants flower during the winter?We shovel snow;-(
My post.. fungi in the garden.We live in very beautiful park like setting along the shoreline of Lake Ontario with a lot of trees. Aquifers below the some areas provide an underground layer of water-bearing permeable clay. The result is that many different lichens, mosses and other fungi grow on many surfaces.Hope fungi will grow on your trees as well, but they need moisture!!LG Gisela
