Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

"for cryin' out loud"

Due to lousy weather and having to work these past few days, I have not been poking around my garden. Imagine my surprise, today, when I found these plants still blooming.

Seems a welcome suprise following your time at the salt mines.

What a beautiful scene to find during these cold damp days!

I hope you are able to get out in the garden more. I have had the week off, but had appointments and also have been fighting a headache, so I haven't been in the garden much. I did go out and enjoyed taking some photos today.

Hi Jennifer~~ Well I can understand the Kaffir lily and obvioulsy the snapdragon is a stalwart but Gladiolus? Its internal clock must have already fallen back or maybe sprung forward. At any rate, it looks like a wonderful surprise.

How nice to see blooms when it is so yucky here now! Your may just keep me going a while longer~

It is so nice to see the gladiolus. They are lovely, especially for blooming so late.

Jackie said...

Wow, great blooms. Isn't fun to find these surprises?!

Gladiolus ? They can only grow 1 season at my place which is a pity as they look good during Chinese New Year
