Jacaranda's and some garden snaps............

I had a few posts ready for you all from the last 2-3 weeks prior to the flooding..........they are all sitting as draft posts in blogger waiting to show you but then I kept having weather things to show you..............anyway......I am so sick of all that and it is going to get worse before it gets better...........and it is raining again as I type this...............anyway i'll share this post I had prepared as with all the rain there are no more flowers left on the Jacaranda's.....
........so enjoy................
I just love Jacaranda's.............I have lots in my garden and they have been flowering beautifully....all finished now with the rain though................some are about   40-50 years old and others under 10 but I just LOVE them..........messy but gorgeous.............



bouganvilleas, oleanders, plumbago and agapanthus are all flowering or starting to flower well.............being in such a hot dry (usually) climate I have lots of hardy plants that will survive droughts.............

aggies............
I brought some manure in and have heaps of these big mushrooms are popping up at the moment.............
bouganvilleas...........




I snapped all these before the rain but wanted to share them with you.............
Catch you later..............

  3. Hello Donna,

    Your garden is beautiful. We share a love of the same plants,tough ones. Enjoy that rain,though it sounds you have had enough. Just wish that big colander was working so we could share some. Have a great Sunday with your family.
    Happy days.

  8. Love your Bouganvillias. My husband asked what flower is that when he saw one in a garden and I said " orr its a name up in the hHighlands up North ---- he said Lae Port Moresby now whoever heard of a flower called Port Morsby? " I sighed remembered and said Bouganvillia and he looked at me queer.
