Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. Your flowers look great. We at least have pelargoniums in common but that's about it. There is so much diversity in the plant world!

Thanks Carol,

I meant to post last month but I was too busy at the time. It's such a great idea it's great to be involved.

Love that Acacia and those Correa's are very nice too. Hebe's I had in my previous garden, excellent plants and so pretty.

Have you had rain yet? Any at all? In the Netherlands we had 45 days without rain, a record for us (don't laugh). And after that it rained for almost a whole week.

My contribution to Blooms Day is up too.

cheerio!

You have some lovely blooms in your garden. Stop by and see my slideshow of spring blooms.

Pam/Digging said...

Bill, I love your acacia and correas. How long until your first freeze---or does it freeze where you live?

geekglue said...

Hi Pam ; no it doesn't freeze here. We get enough snow to last for 5 minutes once a decade on the You Yangs (en extinct volcanco nearby).

Yolanda : we have been getting some rain for the last month. It's very light and infrequent. They announced yesterday that Melbourne had the driest year in recorded history.

Nice to see what's blooming in Australia. I've never heard of most of these. Thanks for showing them.

My post for Bloom Day is up, too.

Hi Throbbing Thumb (know the feeling!). I was delighted to find you on Blotanical and see your link about Acacias and, blow me, to find another plant (Chef's Hat...glabeus something) that we'd bought recently with no name on it. Now I can read up on it. So thanks for that.

You seem to have the same things blooming as we in Spain, so lots of points of interest to go now and have more browsing. thank you again.

Hey Throbbing Thumb from a Melbournite. I think that last hebe pic is a Plectranthus. Happy blooming and a rain dance on the side.

Thanks Ainslie,

I think you may be right. I haven't found a good picture but all the descriptions seem to agree. I will update the Flickr entry.
