beautiful blooms

on my walk through the neighborhood, i was astonished at the diversity of blooming plants, shrubs and trees. apparently in sydney flora stay in bloom all year round in this temperate, semi-tropical climate. from what i saw there were roses, geraniums, frangipanis, dahlias, camellias, rosemary, jacarandas, bottlebrush, nasturtiums, hibiscus, cosmos, lavender, and bird of paradise - which i've never seen in the ground. there were many things i couldn't name. i even saw an olive tree in a front garden laden with fruit.
