One of the joys that follows decent rain here is Brisbane is the flush of flowers on the Murraya or Mock Orange and the glorious perfume that accompanies it.
As you can see above, the poinciana is still flowering.
There are two kinds of plumeria flowering at the moment. The unscented Hammerhead frangipani Plumeria pudica
and the Evergreen frangipani Plumeria obtusa
It's quite a sensory overload of a evening with the murraya, frangipani and night-scented jessamine, which I haven't photographed, all in competion for the most heavenly scent.
The bromeliad above is Achmea 'Burning Bush' is just coming into flower, as is the ixora 'Pink Malay'
This beautiful flower is a Globba 'Red Back', a member of the ginger family, and I have another small golden globba that should be in bloom in time for next bloom day.

The daylilies are slowly coming to an end but have put on a fine show.

I was thrilled to see my waterlily has made a recovery after a major decline last year. Unfortunately, I often miss the flowers because they haven't come out when I duck down early to feed the goldfish and have closed up again by the time I'm home from work.
I hadn't realised these two bromeliads were related until I noticed the similarity in the flowers.
This lovely canna is a very welcome refugee from my neighbour's yard.
Finally, along the driveway all the spider lilies Hymenocallis littoralis are out and looking spectacular.
That's the last garden blogger's bloom day for our summer here in Australia. I'm hoping to order a few spring bulbs later today and am eagerly anticipating the arrival of blooms on dahlias. To see more of what is blooming in gardens around the world, visit Carole at May Dreams Gardens.
