The camera can't capture this frangipani's true colour. It's actually darker than this.
I trimmed this plant back to about half its size to take cuttings for the new garden.
It's obviously forgiven me and is flowering profusely.
Most of the frangipanis are still putting on a show. They will start to lose their leaves soon and look like bare storks over Winter, but until then I'm appreciating their beauty and their perfume.
Even some of the heliconias are still blooming.
This hibiscus was cut back a few months ago to about a third of its size. It had started to look rather scrawny, but since its trim it is thick and lush and has just started flowering again.
I was going to train the allamanda up a post and into a weeping standard.
I'll probably run out of time before we have to move.
Nearby the tibouchina has just started flowering. It remains covered in blooms for most of Winter.
The bees don't seem to have discovered it yet but they will soon.
The Brazilian Red Cloak looks amazing. I think I'll take a few cutting for the new garden.
To have a shrub like this flowering during Winter cheers the soul.
Justica Brandegeana, the shrimp plant is in full bloom as well.
Perhaps all the plants are appreciating the rain we've had lately after the hot dry Summer.
A bromeliad flower. It will last for a few months.
This was a lovely little surprise I found when I went into the shadehouse to check how my cuttings are progressing.
It's been growing on a piece of wood totally forgotten and overlooked until it flowered.
By the way, the cuttings look ready to pot up.
Enough wandering around the garden. Time to get to work.
