    I Come to the Garden Alone...
    My latest photo on www.flickr.com/photos/kwpashuk

    Leaving the house this morning I couldn't help but notice how the roses were still in bloom, even in mid-November.

    I was then reminded of that old hymn... I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses.

    Hvar, Croatia, is known as the island of sun but also the island of lavender. Lavender fields are different than fields of Provence with its regimented rows. Massive tufts of lavender grow up to 1.5 meters in height in apparently random fields between stone walls and massive piles of cleared limestone.
    Three major fires in the last two decades have been almost completely destroyed the Hvar lavender plantations. Thanks to the persistent growers, Hvar still exudes the scent of lavender.

    #7 Well I thought they were flowers going by the picture @Irene Hackett but now you have clarified they are pods I can name the tree.
    It is a Koelreuteria elegans which is commonly known as a Golden rain tree, the flowers are butter yellow, it then bares the pinky red fruit pods, there you go!

    Thanks for the tag @Irene Hackett the birds are nice...now to the nitty gritty.
    The plant in the bottom right which is only showing green leaves and some seeds is a Crinum lily or Spider lily from the family Amaryllidaceae shame you didn't catch it with flowers, but they are white! as for the one to the left I am only able to guess as I am unable to get the perfect close up.
    So my best guess is that it is a species of Mussaenda which is a tall shrub or tree with pinky peach flower petals, I was trying to see if there was a small distinct yellow flower within the pinky petals but am unable to do so, as this would have identified it perfectly, hopefully this will have been of assistance to you, if not let me know!

    They are less commonly known as Rose mallow, the flower colours range from white to pink, red, orange, peach, yellow or purple.
    And as far as I am aware the Hibiscus is the national flower of Haiti, they are grown for the showy flowers which are great for pollinating insects including butterflies and of course bees! hope this helps

    Andrew, for those in the U.S. and maybe even internationally, the Natural Resource Defense Council has started a campaign to stop the manufacture of neonicotinoids, which is a pesticide known to have kill bees. In many countries the use of this pesticide has been banned but the U.S. continues to be a major customer. If you follow this link and do to the bottom of the post you can join the campaign by allowing the NRDC to send a letter on your behalf to the major importer of this product. https://www.nrdc.org/stories/buzz-about-colony-collapse-disorder.
