Winter Flowers

Even thought winter is in full swing here in the Sydney area, there are some beautiful flowers in full bloom. Here are some photos I took of some of the flowering plants in our neighborhood.

There are towering poinsettia plants in several yards around our neighborhood.

Bushes of different varieties of mums are also popular.

Not sure what these are, but they come in various colors: white, pink, and purple.

The stunning Birds of Paradise are in many front gardens in our neighborhood.

And, yes, we also have dandelions here - even in winter!

  1. Glad to see your second winter this year isn't going to be quite as harsh as the first!

    I think those mystery flowers in white, pink, and red are camellias. : ) We've got a lot of those here, too, but I've only seen a few poinsettias ever get that huge! Pretty cool.
