Bulbine frutescens - this flowers for most months of the year, but I really appreciate it in January when little else can survive the scorching heat.
The delicate flowers of the Indigofera jucunda are almost at an end, they start flowering in December, filling the tree with a mass of tiny blooms.
Miribilis jalapa - this will probably be the last alien I remove from my indigenous garden - if ever. These wonderful water-wise flowers start springing up in November. providing interesting colour right through till May, then they obligingly die back allowing my indigenous beauties to shine.
Asystasia gangetica - really useful ground cover that flowers throughout spring and summer
Strelitzia reginae - showing off it's striking blooms.
You know it's winter when Aponogeton distachyos start to flower - beautiful and you can eat them too!
Can't beat Gazania's for winter colour
Stunning display from Sutherlandia frutescens tells me that spring is not far away.
Hard to choose in my favourite month of the year, but this pelargonium never fails to delight.
Watsonia borbonica - my favourite spring bulb.
Can't help but be impressed by this King Protea - the size of my head. This was taken in Helderberg Nature Reserve
Crassula coccinea putting on a dazzling Christmas display.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
