Summer’s Here!!!

And the Poinciana’s gone CRAZY! Which is just amazing of course. If Jacaranda is the tree for Spring and Frangipani for Summer, Poinciana is to bridge the gap between πŸ™‚




I’ve been told the reason the trees are so packed with bright red flowers is because we haven’t had any rain yet to knock the flowers down. It would be nice to have some rain though, especially for the farmers in regional areas. Summer is great, but if it’s not flooding, it’s drought.

Anyway, I found the last dregs of the Jacaranda blooms:


The Frangipanis are getting started too…




And I found some surprise sunflowers! They’re on the fenceline of an apartment block, so I’m not sure who tends to them, but they look great!


I love walking around my neighbourhood to see the change of the plants and the seasons. We don’t have ”proper” seasons in Brisbane but we do get some beauty from nature to tell the turn of time. I really should post my photos of flowers more, or just whatever I fancy taking a photo of. I love seeing other people’s photos, like onΒ Midwestern PlantsΒ or Tea and PaperΒ or To Search and Find Happiness EverydayΒ (I’m sorry if I missed anyone!), so I’m going to do it too πŸ™‚

I took these photos Tuesday afternoon, 18 November 2014.

  1. I’d love to see your photos, and thanks for mentioning me as a blog you look at photos on. I sometimes wonder if I post too many, but they make me happy and that is what blogging is all about for me.
    Hope you have a great Sunday.

    • I saw that on the news! Crazy snow. We’ve never gotten anything like that in Aus. At least, not in populated areas. I think it snowed in Hobart once 20 odd years ago but it wasn’t deep at all.
      I hope you’re keeping warm with cocoa and slippers πŸ™‚

      • I feel so bad for those who suffered the madness of such deep snow. We are fortunate, only got a couple feet, and it is gone now. It has been snowing today, but it was warm the last couple days, so no accumulation. Still wish I could afford to visit you this winter! πŸ˜‰ Hugs!

  2. Lovely to see your beautiful flowers there as I sit in a motel room with rainy and cold skies overhead. We’re back in Canada. It’s quite a shock after coming from the lovely weather in Korea:-)

    • You’re back in Canada? For Christmas holidays? I promise I’ll hop on your blog and see what you’ve been up to, once I’m off work and back home in Brisbane β€” should be tonight or if not tomorrow. The internet got knocked out from a thunderstorm up at work so I’ve only had the limited capacity of my phone to rely on 😦 all the posts I’ve done for the last week were scheduled from when I was on break.
