68 ~ Autumn Garden

garden collageJust a few more photos from today. It was overcast all morning, but when the sun came out sporadically in the afternoon I was out with Bibi wandering around the garden in search of colour.

We don't have those splendid displays of autumn leaves seen in higher latitudes but we do have a year long show of bright and exotic flowers, with roses blooming throughout the winter until we prune them anywhere from end of December to beginning of March.

And I have to add in my favourite little bush of which I never tire....the Dama de Noche, Cestrum Nocturnum, whose evening scent is the sweetest and most exotic perfume I have ever encountered, so I wrote a poem and dedicated a post to her, the Lady of the Night.

In the next days we'll go on a short drive down the island to a black sand beach where we'll have a fish lunch with papas arrugadas (Canary Island wrinkled salt potatoes) with mojo sauce, and I'll write down both recipes for you.

¡Hasta la Vista!

Lo siento pero no sé decir esto en inglés...

Las fotos de hoy tienen todas ese tipo de atmósfera cargada, húmeda pero templada de un gran vivero... bueno, es lo que es la isla en sí... da la sensación de que de un momento a otro va a caer una lluvia de esas que se mezclan con rayos de sol...

Increibles fotos, felicidades

Gracias Nimenos....no importa que no escribes en inglés porque entiendo todo. Y es que sí ha sido un dia cargado de humedad aunque no ha llovido y algunos ricones del jardin estaban en un penubre delicioso debajo de los arboles.

Thank you for your visit and comments Ilona. I will pay you a visit as well.

Acalypha Wilkesiana looks awesome. I am not at all familiar with this plant, but it sounds like one I would like to get to know better.

Sharon, I covet your glorious garden buddies!

Btw, the photo of your newly-adopted Bibi is beyond precious.
