Winter at Mia Bella Gardens...


Oh my, how incredibly warm this winter has been!


And I am enjoying it immensely!
Not only for the fact that the arthritic bones are not so sore, 
but for the enormous amount of colour that there is...


Bromeliads... 


Even the butterfly flower 'asclepias',


and an iris,
neither of which should actually be in flower right now!




 
Red Bottle brush trees...




Paper whites with a delicious perfume...


Purple Hebe...


'Correa Pullchela' with pretty pink tubular flowers...


 There are camellias in fabulous colours...




Nicotiana which a flowering tobacco.
This one is the hybrid called 'Ondra's Green Mix'.



Fushias, fushias...


and more fushias...


 Begonias...





A touch of purple...


 Colourful leaves....




  Banksia Tree...



 The Gordonia tree is in full bloom...


And even a passionflower!
If nature is so kind as to let Mia Bella Gardens escape any severe frosts,
 she is going to look AMAZING come spring...
And I can't wait!
