I went for a wander in our garden and found so many trees and shrubs flowering. The Bombax flowers were floating to the ground and I thought this is where they got the idea for Avatar from. The large Combretum molle has abundant yellow flowers full of bees and birds.

Combretum microphylum was scrambling around with its bright red flowers. It is alive in the early mornings – full of sun birds and bees.

The Khaya is producing new red bright leaves. They may as well be flowers.

The Craibia has been beautiful – mass of white flowers with glossy green leaves.

The Erithrinas have been flowering since August and so have the Dombeya – they are nearly over now.

The Hypericum seems to flower all year round – just a cheerful friend.

And the Cassia are very cheerful with their delicate yellow flowers – not sure why they call it the scrambled egg tree – scrambled egg usually look a lot more messy!

 

Anyway here are some photos of the garden this afternoon! I hope you enjoy them!
