WW - Hebe



Our Hebe does seem to take any notice of the seasons and was pretty much full bloom on Christmas Day. This week's entry for the Tuesday and Wednesday edition of Wordless Wednesday

I can't believe this flower was blooming like that on Christmas!

This hebe is so pretty. I did a fifteen minute search here and I don't think they grow many in Texas. We do have some climate similar to New Zealand.
I also like your flower and insect pictures. I have a June bug collection, about half are really bugs.

One bug no one knew what is was, but my readers aren't very expert in bug areas,

I arrived back from LA and it is about 30 degrees warmer than NYC. It is strange seeing Palm Trees when the temps get around 40.

Ingrid said...

ZJ said...

Lovely! I love the purple ones :)
Happy New Year, Mr. O'Donnell!

Beautiful as always.

That's beautiful. One of my rose bushes has flowered right through the winter, and still has a few flowers and lots of buds, and one Azalea has just started flowering. Crazy seasons!!

Tina said...

If you try you can see a firework display in the 2nd picture!
Thanks for showing the flower pics, I am slowly tired of winter...

Have a Great and Happy New Year!

Good one, jams. I enjoyed this plant in Ireland. It gets too cold to have it here. There is nothing blooming in my garden now.

Best Wishes for a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

It's quite amazing that the same flower looks like two different ones from the different angles.

Slept all day yesterday after finishing night shift ... Happy new year
