Spring at the Villa

These are the flowers showing themselves off in my sunny garden today.  This red one is a grevillea - native to Australia.

Not sure what this pretty yellow one is - another native Australian plant....

A pink diosma, very pretty at this time of year.  The feathery leaves smell beautiful when crushed...

Jasmine hanging over our back fence, filling the air with a heady perfume.... Max cut it back, but it is a very determined plant!

And brightening the shadows, a snowball plant...


  1. oh, such beauty. i think i can smell the jasmine way over here. lucky you to be entering spring as we leave summer.

  2. What beauty! I had never heard of any of the plants besides jasmine, but never seen that. I do love the smell of jasmine. The flowers are indeed putting on a show for you, and now for us! Love to you in springtime, xoO

  3. I can smell the sweet garden ... so pretty. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Wow - not only a delight to the eyes but I imagine the smell is heaven! I love the jasmine! I don't know how you'll be able to drag yourself away from that place!! Have a great weekend.

  5. How beautifully exotic your spring time flowers seem to me way over here in North America. Full of heat and Australian sunshine. Enjoy the treasures, Beautiful Patti !
