After a very rainy (and warm) winter spring has arrived bringing yet more rain. I am not complaining I like rain and benefits most of the plants in my garden, I say most because my Roses don't like to be wet for many days since that creates the ideal conditions for their archenemies:Blackspot, cankros, powdery mildew, rose rust.. It's been raining almost weekly since July and everything looks beautifully green but it won't last much: soon the lushness will be checked by the first summer heatwaves.. so I will enjoy it while it lasts!
The roses, the few that survived..
The Camellias are still blooming.. I love them madly!
The lantana is showing her first blooms
This Tillandsia Aeranthos is a native bromeliad that grows spontaneusly on trees, they have very nice blooms.
And today it was a very rainy day but I decided to take some pictures of the roses and other plants because I love the sight of raindrops on flowers and leaves: it's pure magic!
Roses covered with raindrops or battered by the rain
The first water lily blooms are coming!
And a last picture of raindrops on a palm leave!
See you next time!
