These are the flowers we had in the garden in early winter 2019, taken mainly on 15 June 2019. They're not all overly pretty, but the purpose of the photos is to record what was in the garden at the time.

It's the beginning of winter, but there are some positive surprises, unfortunately also some negative ones. On the positive side, some of the native plants are looking very good. The Alyogyne huegelii that I planted in the spring, and which gradually developed over the summer, is now in full bloom:

The Banksia integrifolia continues to flower (if that's the word). There must be 50 flowers in various stages of bloom:

The Grevillea bronwenae that we bought two years ago has survived rather than flourished, but now it has new flowers:

In that connection, it's worth noting two plants that, as I feared, have clearly died:

The three plants are in a line, and I've been wondering whether there is something in the soil that caused the last two to die. Could be just be that, despite everything, there was just not enough water?

One discovery that suggests that is in the eastern garden:

This particular Hebe is in full flower, while others are struggling:

In addition an existing Leptospermum near the Hebe is also flowering, out of season:

I think that there was a water leak near the flourishing Hebe, and it also caused the growth in the “lawn”, really the ground-cover like legume with the small yellow flowers that I've been trying to cultivate. They're also taking over the central garden bed; I think that they're the same:

If I'm right, I'm going to have to apply even more water than I thought, and spend more time ensuring that there are no leaks in the dripper system.

Apart from the Grevillea Bronwenae, the one remaining ground cover Grevillea in the central bed is flowering happily:

The other Hibiscus variants are doing relatively well. The Hibiscus syriacus near the house still has buds, but I don't think that they will flower:

On the other hand, the “Uncle Max” Hibiscus rosa-sinensis has a nice bud that might still flower:

The Paulownia kawakamii certainly did better this year. It still has a leaf, but in particular a number of buds:
