Randomness

Tonight’s post is a collection of random outdoor pictures I took over the past week.

Our gardenia bush’s intoxicating fragrance permeates the air.

Also in bloom is this peach colored hibiscus.

The alligator plant is not in bloom.  It bloomed late in the fall on an approx. 3 ft.  tall “stalk” with an umbrella shaped bloom at the top.

While watering the purslane, I spotted a rogue Johnny Jump Up in the container.   Is it just me or does he have a little pirate face?

Can you see the rainbow in this picture?

I love your big gardenia bush. The fragrance is so sweet but I’ve never had any luck growing them. Love a hibiscus, so colorful. I have them too, more red than yours. I do see the rainbow......
Beautiful flowers.
