Colouring In Time

It's that time of year again when I need to do a little more than the usual tidying up in the garden.  It's time to introduce colour and scent.  The summer passed with only a few expected casualties, including a couple in this post.

The habiscus on the balcony looked impeccable until late September and it gradually, but quite aggressively, died due to some sort of white fungus.  Better news for the gardenia though, that looked like it was on its way out; whose new leaves are starting to make an appearance on the batttered stem.  It should make a full recovery over the next few weeks.

I will probably start next weekend and I'm adding these images taken between February and April to inspire me.  The weather has broken and I hope we get many beautiful days this autumn and winter.

I wasn't going to include the last image with the dusty leaves.  When I came to deleting it, I realised how much it represents the garden on a 'normal' day.  I had taken it for my garden diary - and not for a photoblog - but since I can't wait to get my hands dirty next week, I'll start with a few leaves.

That's pretty, and they all seem to look quite healthy and cheerful, even after the onslaught of summer. They should be joyous in the months to come! Glad were done with the heat and looking forward to the brief space before the chilling winter!

We have some of those flowering plants in our backyard. Their flowers are very common for me. But looking at those photos of them, I felt that they belong to very rare varieties. Great shots!
