WINTER COLOURS

One of the advantages of living in the sub tropics is having flowers blooming in the garden in winter. It was a beautiful sunny day today. I read an article about Vitamin D is good for preventing dementia, so I went outside and worked played in the garden.

  2. Wow, Is that all the flowers you had in the garden? You have different variety and all are beautiful blooming flowers. You must have a nice smell of them everyday.

    If you can stop by and visit my other blog that would be nice.

  5. Your flowers are gorgeous. The bee on the lavender is a great shot.
    Glad Bill is doing okay. I've had mine since February of 2007 but have other heart issues since the mid 90's.

  6. With a garden so beautiful as this, I'd be preventing dementia all day long!

    Simply gorgeous blossoms.

  7. Now that's a warm winter garden that can afford to splash all the flowers in one post when I have to eek mine out. Beautiful camellias. I've got one like the top shot coming out now. You tell your garden is much warmer than mine. Bees at this time of year ... no way.

    ??? I think more likely a wallflower but it doesn't look right for that either.

  9. Wow-your winters are so different from ours... In winter here, everything dies and turns brown... I'd LOVE your winters down there... That may be my favorite season there (cool temps and FLOWERS).... Wow!!!!

    Love all of your pictures... That first Camelia is fabulous!!!!!! Love the pink/white...

    Have a great day.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

    Have no worries, the cavalry of bloom authorities, has arrived.
    It is a rare "yellowcolliwobblist" - an exceedingly rare flower. You must tend to it with utmost care.

    The other blooms are very nice also.
    Cheers

  11. Diane, I was out inspecting our garden just recently and I can honestly say we have nothing except some chinese lanterns, grevillias and a few native hibiscus.
    Yours is still colourful during the winter months.
    My regards to Bill

  12. Beautiful blooms, Diane. The Camellias are something we can't grow up here ... nor that lovely lavender! I really love that Camellia at the top ... so pretty.
    Can't help with the last bloom ... although it does remind me of a Wallflower.

    Glad to hear Bill is doing OK. That's great news.

  13. Your camellias and geraniums etc are lovely. I did have an idea on the last one but pictures I got on google did not match.
    My lavender is only in bud so far.

  15. You have some really beautiful flowers in your garden Diane. I really like the shot of the lavender with the bee.

    It's good to hear Bill is doing well.

  16. Beautiful flowers, I especially like the camelias. My mom had camelias all over our yard while I was growing up, and our little town in southern California had a camelia parade and festival every year. If this is your winter, then I'm soooo jealous. All we have in winter is snow (and the greatest skiing in the world if you like that sort of thing!)
