GARDEN PARTY

Today Cielo from The House in the Roses is hosting a Garden Party.
Well it may be Summer for you but today it is a cold,
wet Winter’s Day for me in Mt Martha, Australia.
Here are a couple of photos I just took of the first bloom on
my Camellia that flowers in Winter.
See the raindrops on its petals


I have added some garden photos from throughout the year

Hi Alison, Your garden is surely looking better than mine, I don't think I can put that down to different weather conditions! Your photos are lovely.
No I didn't go to the garage sale near you, I can't believe little Riley is having swimming lessons, just seems like yesterday he arrived into the world! I think your floor will be wonderful, well worth waiting for it to be finished if you have to...
