I particularly like the second to last photo, though I don't know what plant that is. You can view the rest here :D

I love Plumbago! (The pale blue ones or are they white.) I have a tall fence at the back of my house and we grow very nasty Pink, red and white Bouganvillea on it as the creek runs down there and it stops anyone even thinking about jumping the fence... it has grown up into the silky oak tree and looks gorgeous in bloom.

The yellow is allamanda.

I know the one you want to know but can't think of the name. UGH

Finally Sheg... someone who has the same type of flowers as where I live :D

None. There's not a lot in bloom in Cardiff in November.

Yay for non-Northern hemisphere folk! :)

I think bougainvillea is practically our national flower. It is everywhere.
You probably can't really see the orange flowers. It's rather underexposed
:oops: All the photos are slightly wonky actually :D It's a new camera and I'm
not really sure how to use it yet :wink:

Um...don't want to worry you or anything SG, but isn't Singapore in the Northern Hemisphere? :?

But I've always felt like we're an "equator country" and don't really belong to either. That's technically rubbish though :D We're very very slightly above the equator line in Riau Island. Bit of a fluffy moment, I suppose! :wink:
