GBBD totally slipped my mind, until I turned on the computer this morning. And what a morning it was...cool, breezy, just a delight. I'm putting this post together at 3:30 and it's now 89 degrees. In spite of our cooler mornings, summer is still very much with us in Central Florida. Fall has not had much affect on my plants, just a few yellowing leaves, here and there in the shade gardens. Here's a few blooms...
Clair Matin Rose
Pink Pet Rose
These are some of the cuttings I took a few months ago from my old garden roses, so happy to see one blooming already...
This is the 'mother plant'.
A couple other blooms out front, then we'll go to the back...
Aloe, a hummingbird favorite.
Crown of Thorns
Jasmine, in the shade garden.
Blue Ginger, these blooms have lasted for months.
A lowly, but lovely, coleus bloom.
Clerodendrum Vine, just beginning to show color.
Another, on the fence, further along.
The tree above has a beautiful bloom, a crepe paper look...
Just one more camellia...
A couple more plants that seem to bloom all year round in my garden...Gloriosa Lily.
Common water hyacinth looks so much like a flower from a hyacinthus bulb. It seemed as though the whole canal was blooming today, so even though it's not my bloom, I'll share the photo.
