Flowers in my garden

I was so happy recently to be able to walk through my garden in New Brighton near Byron Bay(presently rented) and to admire all my beautiful blooms...I planted most of them and have to admit I don't remember their names.........

                            Water Hyacinthe - they only last for one day, the petals look like they have been painted

No words are needed .......
just take in those magnificent colours a garden can deliver

                                        Purple Tiboutchina

blue ginger flower


It has been a very summer up in Byron, just the amount of water this particular Golden Penda to bloom...so no surprise that many of us in the street were amazed by the show when all these trees in the area were "resplendissants" in their bright yellow

Josephine Bonaparte Trilogy

For those who like a bit of French history, this
 "is the first book in an incredible trilogy inspired by the life of Josephine Bonaparte"


This Trilogy kept me reading until late hours, finished one book and onto the next eagerly



hopefully still available. A friend of mine lent me her copies with high recommendations and by accident I found my books in a charity shop, best book find!!!!
