Our camellia bush has been covered in buds so I was so excited to to come across this first bloom today.
This rogue purple orchid has popped up between a tree and some undergrowth.
I think this is another type of orchid - the colour is so vivid an lovely down the side of of house.
And a sure sign that it's getting colder - our poinsettias are blooming! We've got two huge bushes of them but this was the only head low enough for me to photograph.
