All Things Bright and Beautiful!

Living in the hot sun with little rain, means plants have to be pretty robust. Here are a few that live in the little wall gardens down our drive. By the way the bananas belong to our neighbour, I have my eye on them turning yellow!

LOVE the beautiful pics! With the exception of the bananas, I have all of these plants in my yard! Gorgeous.

Lovely pics, Pauline! Did you take them recently? Is it really still hot and sunny in the Canaries? It's been pretty wet and horrible over in the Algarve the past few days.
I've got a banana plant in my garden... I reckon it's a freak of nature though. It grew so shockingly fast that it gives me the creeps!
Hope all is well with you.

Your garden must be looking fabulous with all those massive plants in it. I love the top one. Is it a form of Escallonia?

Pauline Barclay said...

Hello Rosalind, the top one is Bourganvillea, it growns here like a weed and is so vibrant all the years round. x

Such beautiful photos. They make me long for the summer, and looking out of the window at all the hail sitting on my lawn makes me long for it even more.

Pauline Barclay said...

Hello Caroline, thanks for stopping by. Hoping you have a great weekend and not too cold!

Hi Debs, Nice to see you here, thanks. We complain about the wind and the heavy showers this morning, but it is back to blue sky and hot sunshine....sending some to you. Hugs x

Great pics, Pauline. Love those apple banannas. We had a similar type garden when we lived in Kenya. Miss it lots!

Pauline Barclay said...
