Flowers On Friday ... last winter month Downunder - Aug 2011

Category: My Dry Tropics Garden | Posted: Fri Aug 05, 2011 12:07 am

I'm just sharing a few of the blooms around my garden on this first Friday in our last winter month.

One of my favourites right now is my Dietes bicolor. These are such lovely flowers.

Another gorgeous bloom is Dianthera nodosa or Pink Lady Fingers.

There's a few red-flowering Hibiscus continuing with their year-round display.

Then there's the fabulous Bracteantha bracteata or Everlasting Daisies. Some may know them as Paper Daisies or Straw Daisies.

There's also a few blooms appearing on my different Bougainvillea plants.

The pleasant sunny mild winter weather continues here in the north-east of Australia. We had a light shower of rain last night which was refreshing but didn't do much for the garden. It's our 'dry' season here and rain is very sparse and light.

So to some more flowers ... just click on the link below.

Eileen, I have some white too. I just love the colours and the texture of the Bracteantha. They're also such great self-seeders.

Thanks Frank. I love this time of year. Late Autumn through to Early Spring is the best time of year here for gardening. Summers are horrid.
