It’s almost mid November and Bahrain’s weather is still in the 30s C. No wonder the plants are confused. The banana tree is showing a new crop, in November!
Although it’s Friday the 13th today, do have a fantastic and peaceful Friday my friends.
There isn’t much happening in the garden at the moment; end of summer, still hot and barely recovering from the onslaught on the house by the painters. Only the toughest plants are flowering at the moment: this portulaca in the Cauldron, some lantanas and of course the frangipanis.
I hope you’re having a wonderful Friday and even better weekend my friends.
I completely ignored these shrubs (and garden) for the last few months as I have been really busy, add to that the fact that we are repainting the house so it’s surrounded with scaffolding an up to 10 painters stomping all over the garden and you get the idea.
Having said that, I am determined to restart my green-thumb campaign come the new season in September.
Have a wonderful (and spicy!) weekend my friends.
Summer is almost at its hight here and it is merciless to the plants, only the toughest survive. Plumerias are definitely tough and very adaptable.
I planted this one just outside of our house and for all the abuse it gets (cars, children, passing fanciers picking its flowers, hostile environment) it continues to grow quite well.
Have a wonderful and fragrant weekend my friends.
I must confess that I have a very soft spot for Euphorbia Millis, with this that I picked up from Jawad’s – of all places – it brings the total types that I have of this fabulous plant to 4. Look through my Flickr stream to see the others. This one is quite cute, the red flowers as you can see are deep red, but enclosed in them are pretty yellow ones. Very pretty.
With this my friends, I wish you a very happy a peaceful Friday.
