More on the Garden

I thought it might be nice to show you all what is left of the garden flowers after all the shocking winds we have had over the past few weeks- all of the orchids have been blown away  till next year!!
 

 
The plain red lilies are still flowering - the red and white striped ones have gone

 
The large succulent has just begun to open it's flowers - it is covered in big buds

 
Jasmine and bougainvillea intertwined over the fence - the smell of the Jasmine is gorgeous!

 
This poor little red riding hood is still going - I have no idea how it keeps this up!
 
 
Blue Plumbago beside the draceana
 
 
The fish are very happy - they have been chasing one another all around the tank - well it is Spring here, lets see if we get any babies this year!
The weeds all over the garden are extremely happy, time for the weed killer!

Hi there,

Create oh la la here from BYW. What lovely flowers you still have, in Sweden we got the first snow last night... I like your blog, it's very nice and colorful - great job!

Thank you for sharing your lovely flowers. Our yard is full of leaves, dirt and a row of landlord decimated trees so it's very nice to see what we could have if we planted in the Spring! Time to get planning. I especially like the idea of covering the fence with flowering vines. Beautiful.
