Summer feels like it’s on the way!

The weather is really starting to feel more like summer than spring. The heat has really hit me this week!

The jacarandas are starting to lose some of their bloom but I thought I would get a few more photos of their decadent colour before any storms decide to hit and send their beauty cascading to the purple carpet beneath!

I really can’t get enough of the purple blooms, they make me smile everytime I see them!

It’s such a lovely time to visit Brisbane.

This week, I have been doing some dead heading of my geraniums.

Once I had a whole posy worth in my hand, I noticed the delicate, subtle, lovely colours- beige, pinky beige and berry tones.

The Lilipilly trees in my back garden are starting to flower. The tiny little flowers remind me of fireworks bursting into the sky.

The Pelegoniums in my terracotta pot are starting to put on a show of colour! The garden is constantly changing even though in my mind, I feel it stays the same.

Until next time!

One thought on “Summer feels like it’s on the way!

  1. I agree about the jacarandas – they are almost unbelievable! In Hawaii I constantly wanted to take their picture, and then later on I discovered that there is a big jacaranda in a nearby neighborhood and I get to drive past it once or twice a week. Why should I be so blessed??
