My Back Garden – Part 4

In my part of the world, that is in the Southern Hemisphere, it is now the middle of September, or early spring. Living in a sub-tropical climate means that most rain normally arrives in summer, with sometimes very little rain for two or three months through that time of year. This year has been very unusual, in that we have received regular rainfall during the last 9 months or more. The ground has been constantly damp and some springs in the area that are usually dry over winter have flowed constantly over that same nine month period.

That means that everything has continued to grow, and grow, and grow. This spring has come very early as temperatures in the last couple of days have exceeded 25C or 77F during the day. We have also been promised that the next few months are going to be wetter than normal. Not real promising for those who have experienced floods several times over the last twelve months. Lets look on the bright side of life and enjoy nature at its best.

Attached are a few photos taken in my back yard earlier today;-

That color – nature at its best!
Gravillea – the birds love the nectar
Look at those cool droplets!
Geranium – what woman does not like pink!
This is what you call pure white.
How do you like those petals – they look textured!
Those African Daisy’s certain are showoffs!

Just a sample of “My Back Garden” for your enjoyment.
