Winter flowers in Brisbane

Winter in Brisbane is delightful.  I know I’ve said this before, but these sunny warm days are just lovely.  We have had some cool mornings, but it usually warms up by about 10.00am.  I have been wandering about taking photos of winter blooms, starting with my balcony.

these gorgeous orange flowers are everywhere

 I have found out it is called Orange Trumpet Vine – Pyrostegia Venusta.

after the rain


  1. Beautiful – the hibiscus colours are amazing.


    • Aren’t they incredible?


  2. Those orange flowers are amazingly pretty! 😮 I’ve never seen them before. I wonder what they are called?


  3. Was wondering what the general purchase price for an apartment would be in the area of Bagni di Lucca.


    • Hi Michelle, It is difficult to give an average, because the prices obviously vary a lot. There was a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom appartment on the market not too long ago for 90,000 euro, which was a bargain. I can recommend Barbara Marovelli at Geocasanet She speaks English and knows the area. Let me know how you get on. Debra

  6. Debra not sure who sent this on but it is just delightful — more more more—-. My paint brushes are out this morning so there are lovely little temptations re the shots.
    Kind regards Jill
