It rained and rained and rained, but Friday there were a few moments of sun and I went into the garden to take some photos to show to my Mother. Well, she will be impressed to see that the garden looks so 'tropical'!! Everything is growing like mad and need a good pruning, but it also looks luscious!
The pink Datura (right) and the yellow Australian Frangipani (top left) smell delicious, pity that we lost so many flowers with the rain. We also had many Alstroemeria flowers for cutting, I am training myself to bring more flowers from the garden into the house, the Alstroemeria is fantastic for this, sometimes it lasts for up to two weeks in a vase!
In the box below, potted blueberries (left), and on the right some blue and purple flower, I only know the chive flowers in the centre, the other I didn't even plant and they grow in the most shaded part of the garden. If you know what they are let me know.
I love playing with the iPhone, and Camera +, and I discovered that I can create interesting patterns and designs for textiles and paper with photos from my garden. This reminds me a little of William Morris... now Arantxa has the iPhone, I look forward to see what she will be creating.
