Several of my regular visitors/friends have liked the photographs that I posted from my friend’s Smita’s house on Friday. Many of you left wonderful comments. Thank you so much! The Powder Puff bloom (above) is from Smita’s garden.
On Friday, I spent some time at Smita’s place and we went around the huge area taking several photographs. The sight of the dark pink bougainvilleas are such a welcoming sight. There are several plants all along the border of the lawn but the riot of colour isn’t here yet. I think it’ll take a week or so.
Mussaenda, poinsettia, bougainvillea, and several other plants bloom right next to the porch.
The hedge separates the lawn and the driveway. Below the hedge, on both sides, there are flower beds. The farthest point as seen from this angle has the vegetable patch and a pond.
The pretty blooms of the Loquat/Eryobotrya japonica. This is a small evergreen tree native to China but naturalized in Japan,India, Pakistan, and the Mediterranean Basin. Chinese immigrants are presumed to have carried the fruit to Hawaii. Facts taken from Wiki.
Dry decoration on the porch.
From another friend’s house come these lovelies. Erica arranged these flowers for a year-end service held in her house.
And in my yard this gerbera daisy bloomed.
Another view of the not-fully-opened-as-yet bloom.
And last but not the least is the bunch of gladioli I put together when expecting friends for dinner about a week ago. Not home-grown, these were from the nearest florist.
