September colour splash
Ignoring the weed-infested gravel (must get around to it) I sat on the patio this morning drinking in the splashes of colour. Yang too sits alongside me, seemingly in admiration. The tacomaria (Cape honeysuckle) has never been so prolific and for the first time, a type of jasmine has produced heavenly-scented flowers.
There's such a haphazard mixture along this trellis - orange tacomaria, cream and pink bignonia, cream jasmine, orange black-eyes Susans and finally,, a self-seeded, additional clump of plumbago. No planning has gone into this: it's been a case of "stick it in and see what happens".
It's officially Autumn, but we are having a second Spring.
