Here are some photos of my autumn garden. Firstly, the Virginia Creeper, which I never really notice until it turns red.
Not sure what this yellow flower is, but it's a little perennial in my rock garden.
The pineapple sage is doing well this year.
This is a pretty little Zycocactus that lived on the deck. It's a lighter pink than the more usual cerise one.
And here are some Nerines.
Today is Anzac Day, the day when New Zealanders honour those who died in the wars. Most of the WW2 soldiers are dead now, though there are veterans of the Korean and Vietnam wars too, but the Anzac day parades are well-attended. The horrors of war and the spirit of "Lest We Forget" live on amongst our young people. The red poppy is the symbol we use for Anzac Day, and sales of the poppies support returned servicemen and women.
