A colourful finale.

In a few short weeks we will be in Summer
when one has only the energy to recline under the air-conditioner and pray for April to come quickly.

So before the heat and weekly bush fires "controlled burning"  suck our will to live,
let us take one last glimpse of a garden in the full blush of Spring.

Where ballerinas dance in delicate white dresses
and trumpet flowers laugh at my attempts to keep the weeds under control.
There are berries fit for the Cuckoo King
and baby bird nurseries.

Where secret paths lead to ancient temples
and trees rain down purple snow.

Where shy lanterns hide behind bright flowers,
waiting for evening when it's their turn to shine.

And blue butterflies frolic about in the breeze.

My garden - November 2014


  1. How magnificent! And such beautiful photos. I could stand a little summer soon.. Alas, i'm in the wrong hemisphere for that. lol

  2. Thank you. Myself, I could do with a little coolness lol.

  3. wunderschöne bilder!!! danke dafür!!! liebe grüße und einen schönen mittwoch von angie

  4. How sweetly beautiful! I can all but smell the fragrant, marvelous scent of those warm weather (and climate) blooms wafting through the air right now. They'd be a much welcome odour indeed in the midst of our first week of snow so far this year. Thank you for sharing these lovely images with us, dear gal.

  5. Lovely pictures but just don't expect too much sympathy from the northern hemisphere as we wake to grey skies and drizzle!

  6. J'aime beaucoup ce jardin et ces belles fleurs bleues qui recouvrent le sol !

    John: We've just finished our spell of grey skies and drizzle a couple of months ago so I can sympathise :)

    Fifi: Merci beaucoup :)

    Crafting Queen: Thank you and it's a pleasure :)

  9. Debs, your garden is exquisite and although I live in a very temperate area with few days below freezing, we will not see those lush colors until summer. The purples are especially beautiful!


  10. Thank you Genie. I do love it when the jacarandas are in bloom and our lawn becomes a purple carpet.


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I do appreciate each and every one and will do my best to reply. I do apologise for the comment moderation I've been forced to put into place thanks to Mr Dark's spamming. It was not so much the spamming that bothered me - it was his appalling grammar.
