Any colour, so long as it’s green

At least, that’s what my yard is telling me.

The pictures will speak for themselves today. No more words….

  1. instant rain effect: brilliant.

    Glad its raining in your part of the world. Lovely pics. Around 30C in my part of the world today (coastal town 90 minutes from Cape Town). In typical mode, we have ideal beach weather now, after most of the holiday makers have gone home. It was warm over Christmas and New Year but extremely windy most days and quite unpleasant at the beach.

      We’re a little hotter, and have thunderstorms forecast for most of the day, which will be great. Not only do I not need to water the garden, it also gives me the perfect excuse to stay inside and sew!

    Looking forward to our side of the planet to have green again. 🙂 Looks like raindrops on your leaf!

      Raindrops it was, and more on the way today, hurrah! It’s the frangipani buds that have me excited; nothing says summer like frangipani blossoms, and it’s the first time this little tree has flowered.

    Oh I love the green and freshness of growing plants. As you know it is wintertime here…. and quite funny: while you published your post at 7.20 am over here it was 11.20 pm and we are going to sleep now. 🙂

      I know, I always have to check the time when I want to speak to my brother in the UK, or sisters in the Netherlands and France. Even my sister in Australia is in a different time zone! Early morning and early evening work best; when I’m getting up, they’re getting ready for bed, and vice versa.

    You’re getting nifty with your camera – I love that little bug eyed bug.

    What a treat to see such lush foliage! In my little part of North America it is so cold today that the schools have cancelled classes because they think it’s too cold for kids to be outside. Your photos warm me up!

    • katechiconi says:

      The temperature would warm you up even more! But it’s a universal truth that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, and sometimes, just sometimes, I miss snow and cold weather. I can’t remember what cold hand and feet feels like…

  8. Glad to hear you finally got the rain you longed for your garden pictures look stunning !

  9. Our garden is going brown. Next rain due at Easter. Sigh.

      Come and pay a protracted visit to north Queensland, where rain is forecast every other day until March, and we are now looking at a 50% likelihood of a cyclone. I suspect I can wave goodbye to drying the laundry on the line for the foreseeable future…

      • When a high school friend visited Queensland, it rained every day, except one. On that day, she thought she felt rain, but it turned out to be a koala up a tree having a wee. 🙂

      • katechiconi says:

        What are the odds, do you suppose? Most of the koalas I’ve seen in Queensland have been flat patches of grey fur on the highway. The Husband tells me they particularly favour the central white lines on the road as somewhere to stop and have a think, especially at night.
