WHAT IS FLOWERING IN MY GARDEN

After a long time of dry and hot weather we finally get some much needed rain for nature. I had my hands full with watering the garden and all my plants in pots. I planted many new plants and shrubs in the garden so they needed extra care and I used large umbrella’s to protect my plants as the heath was burning the leafs and the flowers. But so far I kept them all alive.

Here’s a peek in my garden :
