The Salmon Pink Geranium in my garden is not very big nor is it a prolific bloomer which is no surprise considering how little water it gets during the drought but every now and then it blooms and it’s wonderful to watch it emerge.
Blue Agapanthus have now started to bloom. I saw a hummingbird feeding on one the other day but didn’t have a camera handy. That would make a pretty pic. Meanwhile I took a few of the blue buds and blooms.
Not much time for photography or to blog at the moment but just had to share this emerging white Agapanthus. At my childhood home we got very accustomed to the blue variety but finding a white one was special.
The area in the park that earlier in Spring was sporting a Wall of Wisteria has now been replaced by a Horde of Honeysuckle. Their wonderful fragrance filled the air and nearby a group did their Tai Chi in the morning sun playing wonderful soothing music. Perfect atmosphere for fun photography.
There is a tiny clementine (citrus) tree in the front garden but despite it’s size it is an enthusiastic grower. It has already produced two small fruits that didn’t survive the curiosity of the children. In Afrikaans we call these fruits “naartjies” and it is apparently a hybrid between a mandarin and a sweet orange. It is now however sporting several white blossoms so here are a few pics. I also thought they would make a nice subject for a monochrome project that I am working on.
In our house I am the mondegreen queen which usually causes my husband distress but I see my son is prone to it too. The first time I heard Boy George singing ‘Karma Chameleon’ I was sure I heard ‘Come a Camellia’, nevertheless I do love Camellias so it worked for me. The Camellias are now blooming in rapid succession and deserve a song of their own.
