Here in Oz it's the beginning of our Autumn but in the tropical areas, like mine, there are no fabulous foliage displays and colourful changing of the season. Things are pretty much exactly as they were all through Summer. We still have the summery weather, summery conditions and summery blooms.
There are just a couple of blooms that have appeared in the last week or so though. I now have blooms on two of my Orchids out in the shadehouse garden.
... and I think this is a Dendrobium. I'm not much of an Orchid expert!
In a different corner of the shadehouse,
there are a few stunning white flowers on my Hedychium coronarium or white Ginger. The perfume from these blooms is wonderfully sweet and heady.
Out in the front yard I'm seeing the first ever blooms on the Koelreuteria formosana or Golden Rain Tree,
and the Duranta repens growing out in the tiered garden beds is dripping with bright orange berries once more after a very long hiatus.
Apart from those few differences though, things are pretty much as they have been.
So here are the blooms that have been on display for the last couple of months and are still out in the garden today.
Some reds and whites.
