|The Back Garden|
Doesn't look very exciting, does it? But it is limping along, as we start our 5th year of drought, this October.
The jasmine plant is growing nicely under the shade of the curry leaf tree:
Nearby, a dandelion is adding a bit of bright yellow:
And the asparagus fern, growing against the side wall, is covered with white flowers:

The hibiscus plant has flowers, too:
There are still some roses blooming too!
Love the coloring on this one, below:
|Double Colored Roses|
And lilac roses:
The gazanias are doing well, and there's a volunteer curry leaf plant growing among them!
The volunteer mimosa plant which was growing in the middle of the garden, which we dug up and planted in a pot, is growing new leaves:
In the front garden, the pomegranates look a bit like Christmas ornaments:
But the iceberg roses we planted in the spring are not doing too well:
It was too hot and dry for them. But one rose bush is trying its best to add a little color:
The flower bed along the covered walkway leading to the front door is doing its best to stay green:

The pot of succulents by the front door step is doing well:
As are the aloes planted along the side wall:
The flower bed under the living room window is looking rather sad:

It was planted with African daisies, plumeria, and monstera:

There were three monstera plants - they are just a memory, now. Most of the African daisy plants have died, too. They will be pulled out and self-seeded plants will come up in the spring:

And that is a brief tour of the garden in October.
