What's Happening in the Garden

THIS POST IS PICTURE HEAVY - BUT WORTH THE WAIT (I HOPE)

I was sitting out in the bali hut this morning, having my morning coffee, and looking around at the growth and the flowers in the back garden, and I thought to myself "I  am sure that readers of the blog would love to see what's happening in the garden this Summer!"

So, I went inside and grabbed the trusty camera, and then walked around the garden taking lots of pictures for you! Aren't I wonderful to have thought of you like that??

So, without further ado, let's take a stroll around our back garden:


Lets start on the left hand side, as we walk into the garden from the side patio - the cardboard plant on the left and the spider lillies next



Double Frangipani to the left, creamy coloured Allamand
a, Little Red Riding Hood in the hanging pot, Dancing Lady orchids on the palm trunk - self sown Grevillea surrounds the palm trunk now


a second view of that garden section


red Frangipani and blue Plumbago next to the grei\villea


Whit flowering Oak Leaf Grevillea, with Dark Allamamda, growing in the centre garden as you walk into the area, You can see my little blue Buddha under the red Frangipani here



This lovely bright yellow daisy grows under the Wedding Palm along the back fence, near where the ferns have self grown


Around now to the back of the Bali Hut, and the Bat Plants have been transplanted into larger pots and are growing like weeds


The fishpond and fountain at the front of the Bali Hut


A second view of the front of the hut



The view across from the Bali Hut, back to where we came from

Hanging in the Bali Hut are these two lovely Hoyas, the bottom one is "Krinkle", who flowers constantly, and the top one is "Grand Hawaii", and just look at what he is up to:-


He has sent his tendrils upwards to the roof


and acrosds the roof he has gone, twisting under and around the wooden beams


Until he has reached the end of the roof, and sent out a flower bunch!!  Would you believe that one!?

Last, but not least, is my gorgeous little geranium, grown from a cutting I pinched.  I have a problem growing them in the pots, they seem to not like them and would rather be in the ground, but so far this one is doing well.  So pretty, isn't it?

Well that's it for today in the garden, I hope you enjoyed the walk with me.  

I will be back tomorrow with some very interesting scrappy pieceing.  See you then!
