My Spring Garden

October has been cooler and wetter than average, so that's good news for my garden. We have been conscious of the fact that much of Australia are under drought condition and therefore try to conserve as much water as possible by switching to plants that do not need so much watering.

Here you see the beautiful Jacaranda in its lilac bloom and the red Bottle-brush. In the left foreground is the Jasmine tree whose little fragrant flowers are just coming through.


You can barely see them but these grow in a circular patch under the jacaranda tree...


Does any gardening cat know what they are? This is a special corner in our garden as my doggie predecessor is buried here. As for the fountain, it no longer functions, but remains my favourite place to hang out...

What a beautiful garden! MoMo, if you are feeling up to it, please come to our meeting of the Society of Feline Gardeners today and leave a link.

Jonesie has studied that flower carefully and she does not know what it is.

Momo, you are as lovely as ever. We don't know much about gardens, as Jan has a black thumb. In case, you haven't come across that expression before, it means she kills everything she touches.

How lucky that you are heading into the warmer weather. That will take the chill off of the house. You look so beautiful by the fountain and it is easy to see why that would be a favorite spot to soak up some sun. Glad you are getting outside.
Stop on over, I did a little dedication post today and you are included.

You have a very pretty garden MoMo. Mum loves seeing the jacarandas in bloom - we don't see so many down here but Mum remembers them from living in Brisbane. We can't help identify your flowers, since Mum doesn't know much about plant names.

It's good to see you out and enjoying your garden,

All three of us just adore the Jacaranda tree. Thank you for showing it. Mom thinks it's flowers are the most beautiful thing. Your yard looks lovely!
