Flowering in January

In the Front Garden the Frangipanis are flowering beautifully........

 
  
 Bush Rainbow
 

 Darwin Yellow
As most of these Frangipanis were leaning over and blocking the pathways, we decided to straighten them to clear the pathway and not have them broken as people walked past. To do this, we had to dig deep around one side of the roots cutting through very thick roots.  We then lifted one side and very carefully filled the hole under the plant on that side with soil.

  1. Beautiful photos. May favourites are the Darwin Blood, and white mussaenda. Do you mind me asking what type of camera you are using? Time for me to upgrade from the phone. Thanks.

  2. My camera is a Nikon DSLR 3200, It takes a very large file size photo and I reduce the file size down for my blog so that it doesn't take up too much internet usage. My problem is that I love them all. We have a lot of Frangipanis in pots here, just waiting for them to get bigger so that they won't get lost in the garden when planted.

  4. Wow, what a feast for the eyes. I've been scrolling up and down, up and down enjoying all the great photos. The range of Hibiscus, Frangipani and Brugmansia is fabulous. I just loved the Justicias as well.

    1. Hi Bernie, I have two very bad habits, one is buying the tropical plants and the other is taking lots of photos of them. I enjoyed reading your comments. Thank you.
