TODAY'S FLOWERS - Farm Flowers


The weather has been hot and in the heat the agapanthus
come into their own.


These are flowering at our gate



and these along the driveway


and on the road near the gate a young Eucalyptus ficifolia
is opening it's first blooms after ten years of growth.



Many more flowers are tucked in behind the Logo on my side bar.

    Winter greetings to you, Arija!

  7. Beautiful flowers. Agapanthus grows in California too, and I always loved it (especially blue one), but didn't know its name. So I'm going to write it down before I forget.
    Have a lovely day!

  10. Wow. Just once I saw a pink agapanthus, but have never seen one for sale. They are a spectacular massed bloom as you have them. The gum is glorious. Thank you.

  14. Oh i love them, i have been infatuated before with those blue agapanthus but plants i secured in the past from outside the country didn't grow well with our hot climate. In yours it is maintaining itself just like our red-orange amaryllis.

  18. Sveicināta, Ārija, Jaunajā gadā!
    Ai, cik skaisti, mīļi attēli šajā un iepriekšējās ziņās. Tik labi tos skatīties, sajust, ziedu un koku smaržas, sadzirdēt putnu skaņas, vērot vasarīgās debesis. Viss kā pasakā šķiet.
    Tagad, ziemā, es priecājos par attēliem Jūsu blogā un citu silto zemju iemītnieku blogos. Man ir jāatzīstas, ka es nemīlu ziemu un aukstumu. Bet ko nu tur... jāpārcieš... esmu jau domās aprīlī, kad mums te Latvijā plaukst koki, zied narcises, hiacintes, tulpes. Šobrīd esmu jau iepirkusi sēkliņas, pēc kādām dienām jau sēšu tomātus un audzēšu stādiņus. Tad vasaras puķes... Un tā pavasaris jau arī būs klāt ar savu jaukumu...

  20. I've just stumbled across your blog and I am stunned at the loveliness I see, particularly those agapanthus!! I have some but they were transplanted last year and didn't do well. Time to pamper them a bit this year in hopes they'll do their thing!! I'll be following along.
