The garden in October;

Red, orange, pink, white, blue and yellow;

Hippeastrums , bold and  bright, dominate the garden in October.

They are all grown from seed over some years.

One of the first; miniature daylily; Orangeade;

Tiny Mangoes are forming, hopefully it will be a good harvest.

A Pomegranate tree growing in the garden is a special treat;  for its delightful  flowers and its wonderful fruit.

By denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox. 
Galileo Galilei 

Exotic looking EL Capitolito Hibiscus.

Under the hood;  Spathiphyllum, elegant, floriferous plant easily to grow.

Dendrobium Aphyllum, the softest colours intriguingly patterned.

Orange coloured Hippeastrum seedling; "Peppe" one always hopes for that special one!

Tiny native bee Trigona carbonaria is busy collecting nectar and pollen, they smear wax all over their entry to keep predators away.

Mini Epiphyllum "Rosy" the first to flower in October.

Bougainvilleas grow in many colours in my garden;

A bad hairday for the pony tail plant
Beaucarnea recurvata it is now generally accepted as Nolina recurvata.

Birds of all feathers;  Exotic Strelizia

Crucifix Orchid; Epidendrum many colours  are available; flowers nearly all year round, suitable as cut flowers, easy to grow.

Dendrobium Aphyllum, a beautifully, soft coloured orchid; 

Nature is relentless and unchangeable, and it is indifferent as to whether its hidden reasons and actions are understandable to man or not. 
Galileo Galilei 

Yellow Kalanchoe, easily propagated from cuttings.

Believe it or not:
I think that in the discussion of natural problems we ought to begin not with the Scriptures, but with experiments, and demonstrations. 
Galileo Galilei

Poetic Takeaway's;

Titania Everyday;


  1. Everything in your garden is looking beautiful, Titania. I am very impatient now to return to Australia, so I don't miss out on too many Spring blooms in my own garden. It's nice to see what is out at the moment, though I think my small collection of hippeastrum is now in too much shade to flower like yours are doing. I especially love the pastel-coloured orchid.

  2. Marisa, thank you for visiting. It is quite dry, we had a few raindrops; luckily Hippeastrums cope quite well with dry springs. Hope you find your garden flourishing when you return home.
