Although the mornings are cold, the temperature rises to the mid-twenties C during the day so we can't complain.
Our Queenslander hibiscus has been flowering all winter. I gave it a severe prune a few months ago and it's never looked better. (even though Queensland lost this year)
Hibiscus are such a bright cheerful flower to warm the cooler months. They flower all year, but are at their best this time of year.
Fatsia japonica is in bloom. We grow it for the foliage rather than flowers, but I noticed something's been munching the leaves
Just opening up.This billbergia has formed quite a clump and most of them decided to flower at the same time. I love the colour combination.
A few days later and they are opening more.
They deserve a closer look.
I love the endless variety of bromeliads. There is always at least one in flower at any time and there is such a diverse range. It's going to be hard deciding which to keep and which to leave behind when we move.
Speaking of taking a closer look.......
