Colour me in

Never mind green is the word -- and I do like my blue -- but give me any colour on this grey spring day. Any and every colour of the rainbow, at least to the extent of our somewhat limited garden...

Our garden plus our neighbour's native Pohutukawa, a Bottle brush look-alike tree only bloodier. The hydrangea is a bit of a cheat, taken on a sunnier day. 

And those outrageous indigo hydrangea petals positively crowding in for their photo to be taken. 

And those interloping ants checking out our new rhododendron (just as well Google can spell), it's enough to make the dull day divine. 

Have a colour-filled day, and best regards of the Southern-hemisphere season,
