We have quite a number of blooming plants right now, but it’s been so wet lately that most are looking a bit rain-addled.
I love these Kniphofia uvaria or red-hot-poker plants even though these spikes are about done. They are the most beautiful orange.
They have bloomed steadily since we arrived in September.
My favorite blooms today are from a pink bougainvillea growing up into this conifer (I don’t have a name for it). They are now eye-level with our upstairs bedroom windows.
Bougainvillea is planted all along the front of the garden and is kept severely clipped as a tall hedge, but a long branch has escaped and has almost reached the top of the tree.
