The 'Tropical 'garden

I have some more garden photos to show you. These are in my 'tropical garden'. Here is a flowering ginger. It has a lovely perfume, a little like frangipani.

This red dragonfly stopped briefly to have his photo taken.

A lovely mauve waterlily, it too has a beautiful perfume. I also spied two green sedge frogs sitting in a waterplant nearby. They were a bit far away to get a good photo, and also they move around the stem of the plant to hide from me.
How is your garden going?
Cheers,
Sandi xx

Your garden is gorgeous. I'd love to have a water feature and have some water-lilies in it. We cant have tropical gardens down in, Echuca Victoria. They wouldn't survive.

I am not going to show you anything of my garden now :) The waterlily is gorgeous.

Lovely photos-your yard is beautiful. I never heard of a potato tree with flowers.

Also, your train car is fantastic and is coming along so nicely-what a fantastic idea and just so cool too!

Happy New Year. Here's to lots of creativity in 2009.
