What a pleasure it is to get up early (when you don’t have to!), to explore the garden at first light. A few delights from my summer garden taken at first light this morning – aren’t the “chameleon” plants (Trachelospermum jasminoides “Chameleon”)  looking gorgeous? The new growth is pink and white on these lovely plants. Finally after a long dormancy, they appear to be waking up for summer to thrill us with their pretty new leaves, so gorgeous!
