Down Under beauties

November in Victoria Esplanade Gardens, Palmerston North, New Zealand, was delightful. There were quite a lot of plants in full bloom, some had finished blooming, such as spring bulbs, and many just coming into bloom. Gardeners were busily planting beds of begonias and other annuals for a beautiful summer round display.

WOW! What wonderful pictures! I really love the flowers with the yellow colors in them. Maybe it's just the fact that we are deep into winter here and color is gone till spring. Love your pics!

Looking at all the flowers and the beautiful colours, Keewee, you're making me very homesick! The Foxglove has always been a great favorite of mine.

Tropical plants just looks so inventive in their adaptation - we like the heliconias.
