Colourful Friday–flowers

I wasn’t sure how I’d go finding flowers in the garden the 3rd day of Winter but I did quite well, I think. These are all in the front garden.

We put some little lavenders in a few months back & they’re all doing well. This is the pick.

flowers - lavender

flowers - roseThere are roses all along the front garage wall which is nice for the neighbours but we rarely see them. They were an overgrown mess when we moved in but after I gave them a brutal prune they’ve all done well.flowers - camelliaflowers - camellia1We also planted camellias along the front fence line, we’ll add more & hopefully end up with a hedge of them. They are still quite small but all have been flowering.

Hi Jan. It is surprising to see what is in bloom in Winter. The camellias seem to have done very well in the cold.
Your photos look great!

All so gorgeous Jan and yes even though it's winter here, there are still little treasures to be found... makes them more precious I think :-)
There is still plenty in your winter garden.
Happy Colourful Friday! xx
