Flowers in the garden


My back is not being kind to me so not a lot is getting done but the Irises and valerian in the garden looked so nice around the pergola post that I had to paint them.
It is warming up so things wont last very long, the subsoil is dryer than last spring so summer doesnt bode very well I am afraid. the rain has just not been there and we can only hope for summer rains to come, and we usually only get them if a cyclone has formed off the Western Australian coast.
What a world we live in, but I still love where I am and what I have.

I'm wishing you rain, a healed back and more time to paint your garden.
This is looking so bright and so fresh as if the plants had been through a gentle shower.

Such cheerful colours. Some of the gardens are brightening up now. Did the Governmor General go down your way. She's a one isn't she, getting political perhaps?

Lovely rendition Penny, a very casual and free feel.

I'm also getting worried about the lack of rain. September was so disappointing and October looks worse. Kangaroo Island is drying out quickly and up here at Stirling in the Adelaide Hills is also starting to look uncharacteristicly dry for this time of year :(
