        Gorgeous pics Victoria. Love that Sunseeker rose. It's wonderful seeing what you can grow in different climates.

        Thank you lost, strongy and Peter.

        Strongy, the Jacarandas have been blooming all month, but with all what's been happening I haven't been in 'photo mood' as you can appreciate.

        I took a few yesterday, but it was very windy/gusty so I'll see about taking more later today.

        Here's a couple of the Jacaranda ...

          Love the interchange between the vibrancy of the light and the colour of the plants.. Bottlebrushes here (of the same type) are just coming into flower here also.. except mine, which is behind! Hope mine doesn't abort its flowers with the horrible weather on the way.. because yours remind me why I love this plants so much!

                :) Hi Alta and welcome to GC.

                We are about 20kms west of Boliqueime so near neighbours! It's a lovely part of the country.
