Pretty little ablutens
There are still flowers on the alamanda. It will be trimmed back soon (when all the flowers have finished).
Just a few blooms left on the tibouchina
I seem to have a couple of colour themes in different parts of the garden - the various reds and deep greens, then there's the yellows and purples. Complimentary colours on the colour wheel. Really, it's just which plants I like growing together.

The salvias have surpised me. I planted these last spring. They died back and sulked over summer and have started blooming again now that the weather has cooled a bit. - Maybe they've self-seeded and these are completely new plants. If so, the colour is true to form so I'm happy with the result.
I don't know it's name, but this bromeliad surprised me with it's "flower" as well.
Gardens are constantly changing, whether you want them too or not. I love to wander and observe. There are often surprises to be found. I love it when they are pleasant surprises.
Enough garden! It's game time!
