The garden has been grateful for the rains that have come to Tenerife after many months of dryness. Roses are particularly beautiful at this time of the year. With a little rainwater and cooler air they have happily developed buds and new leaves.
And one of our Agaves Attenuata, after some years has put forth its inflorescence, a sign that the life cycle of this plant is ending.
Here is a closeup of the agave flower.

The Petrea Volubilis,
or Queen's Wreath is also blooming once again.
Petrea is a beautiful tropical
or tender perennial bush
which blooms here several times a year.
