Autumn Colours

Okay – Post No.2 – I’m trying out a new theme ……..

It’s a brilliant, sparkling autumn day in Sydney.  We’ve been having unseasonably warm weather this month, but I’m not complaining.  The days have been cool to start, warming up to a lovely sunny midday and then cooling again to a mild evening.

I wanted to celebrate the last of the colour in my garden.

Isn’t the pure purpleness of the Tibouchina just gorgeous!!

Sweet Intoxication

This is a rose called Sweet Intoxication.  It really lives up to it’s name – the perfume is sweet and rich and reminiscent of turkish delight.

Pansy/Viola

I’m hoping these pansies/violas will stay around and continue to brighten my courtyard when winter sets in.

Iceberg rose

Nothing beats the beauty of a white Iceberg rose!!

Arum lily

Although, the perfection of this Arum Lily comes close ….

If only this lovely Camellia flower lasted longer before fading ….

Camelia

More Camellias …

Kumquats

Love the vibrancy of  the colours of the Kumquats!!

Rosemary flowers

Even the Rosemary is beautiful !!

But, alas, this is the future … soon the garden will be covered in the fallen leaves of the neighbouring Liquid Amber tree.

Do you love flowers or foliage in your garden?
