Well it isn't the winter solstice yet, but politicians have decreed we are 11 days into winter and so I believe them. For you northern hemiphere folk, this is our December.

Here is a bit of remnant colour in the garden, in the weak sunlight.

The first 5 are grevilleas (3 species, I love them because they attract lorikeets and other nectar lovers). The rest I have no idea what they are. My wife plans and directs, I dig the whole and take photos. It's a division of labour that works for us.



















actually I do know this is lavender of some sort...

Some interesting flowers there Rafael. The last 2 are my favourites, love the angle on the Lavender shot, and the subtle colours on the last one.

Thanks Mark.....yes we even have weird flowers. Some of those grevilleas look like spiders.

Quite a bit of color left. Your wife does a good job of planning and planting.

Ted, I'll pass on your kind words to the wife.....It is nice if you can manage a bit of colour year round.
