Colour in my summer garden

Summer has come to us in Western Australia, and my garden is a picture of red, green, yellow, white, pink, orange and purple. We have had a dry winter and spring, and a hot start to summer, so water is going to be a problem this summer. However we actually have a overcast day today, which gave a beautiful even light for photography, so I took the opportunity to wander about my garden this morning and take these photos to share with you.  They are a mixture of native Australian plants and European garden flowers. I hope you enjoy them. And may peace and joy and the company of those you love be yours at Christmas.

This selection is my contribution this week to Mosaic Monday at My Little Red House. Please go to the link to view others contributions- http://dearlittleredhouse.blogspot.com/.

This is my first try at creating a Mosaic, which I did through Picasa - I hope you enjoy it.

  3. Now THAT is what I call a mosaic!
    Ab-fab and ever so uplifting.
