A walk around my garden

Hi everyone, hope your all feeling on top of the world were ever you maybe.
WE had beautiful sunshine today ,to say the least was to nice to stay indoors all day. I spent a few hours in the garden, prunning the roses and doing a little weeding. before tidying myself up to go visit my sister Pauline, who is recovering well and at home after having Surgery last Friday.
Now on with a few photo's, not a lot in flower at this time of the year,but I managed to find a few today.

I picked this last rose and bought inside before I started prunning

Jonquils starting to bloom


Merle gave this Begonia Clipping months ago I planted it and its still flowering

My Madam Butterfly Zygos in full bloom

Hello dear Jen:-)

I'm back from visiting my boys and now trying to catch up with everyone! Oh my, how I love all your flowers...that rose is just gorgeous!! I'm especially fascinated with your Madam Butterfly Zygos, how beautiful! I've never seen or even heard of those before. I think it's wonderful that you have so many flowers blooming even in your winter time...here everything gets covered in snow! lol xoxo

Is it considered spring there?... or do you just have flowers year round.

Hi Dear Jan ~~ Your flowers are really lovely as always. It has been nice for a few sunny days, but colder days ahead. Isn't Peter a surprise?
Thanks for your comments and glad you liked the Poem and the jokes.
I do hope Pauline is quite OK, that was a shock for me. Give her my love
please Jan. Take great care, Love,
Merle.

Hi again Dear Jan ~~ Thanks for your new comments. I am glad you liked the story of Herman and his Apple Girl,
and it had a nice ending. Take care
and when Pauline is well enough, would you three like to come for lunch one day. I have cooked meals in the freezer ready for you.
Love, Merle.

Beautiful flowers! Your Jonquils bloom much later than ours. Ours all died out in May, or maybe it was even April. My geranium has been blooming off and on since May. My son gave it to me for Mother's Day. The blooms on my resurection lillies should be open by today. Haven't been outside yet.
Have a wonderful day!

You have some beautiful winter blooms. The zygos do really well for you. I have one blooming now with a pretty red flower. I love the color of that pink rose....gorgeous!
Summer is going way too fast for us here in NY.
You're lucky to be able to enjoy your garden through all 4 seasons.

Hallo, dear Jeanette, thanks for coming over to my blog!
It is amazing to see which flowers blossom in Australian winter in a garden! A last rose, spring flowers like jonquils - funny if you are used to central eurpean winters with temperatures somtimes often falling under 0° Celsius and snow...
Your flowers are just beautiful! Have a nice weekend!

For been winter down under, your garden looks great. The butterfly zygos are beautiful. I wonder if they are related to the Christmas cactus?

Wow! Your garden is just gorgeous!

Here in my garden it is very difficult to have flowers... the ants are very, very hungry! Only the Agavea Attenuata can survive! The ants don't like them...Lol!

Honestly Jen, I wish you'd come clean with your secret formulae for your fantastic floral displays all year round!!! Our Daphne is flowering, but that's about all.
I think we'll have to move up your way in our retirement seachange - it must be the soil!!
