The colours of summer

We have colour in the garden most months of the year. The succession of flowering makes one part or another of the garden interesting at different times. At the moment it is the back fence covered in lantana , bougainvillea and honey suckle. Next it will be the fence by the gate which is already covered in cobalt blue plumbago which will soon be joined by the delicate pink bignonia. The summer jazmin is just starting to flower – it doesn’t have the most spectacular flowers but it does provide the most heavenly perfume on a warm night.
