After passing by pampered countryside en route …..

… Pomegranates [Grenadines] were the first things I noticed in the garden.

Creeping around in the back garden is this delicate blue flower; a southern Plumbago perhaps?

Decorating the central car parks and shopping and entertainment centres I like the bottle brush bushes best.

Even the waving grasses against the walls that we could see through the car windows were pretty as we drove out on our way back home.

We left behind palms, and climbing ivy and passed tough, wild mallows in the grassy roadsides.

Back at home in the street, look at these exotic cactus fruits!

Along the drive the dull fence dividing us from next door is brightened by Virginia Creeper, sunshine and shadows.
