The sudden appearance of this lone Daisy has brought a dash of sunshine to the garden, not having planted it myself I was particularly happy to see it finally blooming, as I had no idea what it was actually going to look like.
This miniature Hibiscus has an abundance of buds ready to open, although, I will have to vigilant watching Tarmie and his fly-chasing antics, as if you recall he swallowed a bee at the end of autumn, mistaking it for a fly, and the bees, adore this particular plant.
Stopping on the way home from work this afternoon to purchase two trellis's as my Star Jasmine has begun to trail its way up the fence, soon the delicate aroma will drift upon the breeze, along with the Orange Jasmine that have already begun to allow their scent to linger as the sun warms their petals.
Adding a blushing burst of colour to another corner is this Mandevilla, commonly known as Sun Parasol, a fitting name for such a brightening bouquet.
All in all the gift of life is flourishing in my little slice of heaven, it is becoming the perfect place to just sit, and become lost in the delicate beauty that radiates around me.
Grasses swaying, so hypnotic to watch.
The rustling of leaves as the wind caresses them so relaxing to listen to, all this leads to a truly peaceful way to spend a morning, an afternoon, or, perhaps an entire day.
I have only one more task yet to do, levelling the paver's underneath my wicker bench, and also sealing my pond so that I can set up the fountain and get a couple of lotus lilies as the finishing touch.
Once that is done my oasis will be complete, and I will be able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of my labour, day after day after day.......................
