.. some pretty Winter colour... 2016-7-3



...  we still have some late Autumn colour around the gardens, which is surprising seeing how it's the second month of Winter.

.. these Gordonia trees are still blooming ...    I love the flowers ....  commonly called Fried Egg flowers ....



...  the Sacred Bamboo or giant Nandina is full of berries.....


..  I love them ...



 ....  camellias are everywhere at the moment..  wonderful colour....


I took these photos yesterday afternoon when we went for a walk ...
...  also saw these wonderful front steps ...




these photos are from my garden ... I took them 2pm today
..our plum tree has lost most of it's leaves...   just a few left now...


...  and I have a Hyacinth blooming....  didn't expect this for about another 5 weeks
  ..... 



I love these Impatiens... they bloom all year ......



.. the sun peeping through the choko vine  .... I love sun flares...


... this is the cake our friends brought for dessert  when the came for lunch yesterday...    it was lovely sponge cake under all that chocolate..


.. Thank you for all your prayers and get well wishes for Mum ... she is well now, just very tired all the time....
.. she has been letting me make her bed for her since she came home from hospital...   I'm happy with that..

we are back playing Yahtzee and I 've now making Mobius (twisted ) neck warmers for the nursing home and hospital ...  they are quick and easy to crochet and more convienent than long scarves ...  the yellow one is a straight one..


..   have a lovely day....  hugs...  Barb  xxxx
