Flowers from the garden

Sorry for being absent from blogging. My 88-year-old mother got sick when I was visiting her in India. As a result my two-week trip turned out to be two months long. I am glad I was able to spend time with mom when she was not well.
When I came back from India, my two protea bushes greeted me with overflowing blooms along with weeds as tall as me. I harvested some blooms from the front garden and arranged them for my home. I am hoping these fresh flowers motivate me to start working in the garden.

Protea bushes are in full bloom

For me, these proteas are always a sign of spring in the garden

Orange-colored bougainvilleas, pincushion proteas, scented geraniums, and jasmine vines
