TODAY'S FLOWERS & I Heart Macro - Wet and Wonderful

The little bit rain we had has made 
a huge difference to the garden

Colchicum (autumn crocus) are making
bright patches among the weeds . . .

the wet makes them fade quickly
but if you pick a few, they last for a week indoors

the passionfruit vine is covered in blooms

most unusual in autumn but
I'm not complaining

they are such a joy to see
in fact, the whole garden is 
as if it were spring

even I seem to have more spring in my step

  14. The autumn crocus is new to me -lovey! The beauty of the passion flower is so dramatic:) Thanks for coming by my blog earlier!

  15. Everything looks better have a drink!

    We got some good rain in Melbourne - thankfully.

  16. Die Blüten sind wunderwunderschön, Arija!!! Ich habe Passionsblumen noch nie in einem natürlichen Umfeld gesehen und auch die Herbst-Krokusse kannte ich bisher nicht...sieht wirklich nach Frühling aus :)

  17. Einfach traumhafte Fotos! Die Passionsblumen finde ich so schön! Und dann noch mit den feinen Tropfen.... wunderschön!

  18. As unusual as spring is there at this time of year I'm glad it's put a spring in your step.

    I fell in love with passion fruit in South Africa and now I see the flowers are beautiful.

  19. Happy Fall/Spring (?)... I get my seasons confused, because of the summer-like winter we have here in Florida. You have a better excuse to forget which season it is -- your Fall is acting like Spring. Wonderful rain for any time of the year!

  20. What a great blog, Arija. Each post more interesting and accomplished than the last. Love the sweet kitten post above, but the garden photos are spectacular. Your passionflower is amazing!
