Garden Bloggers Bloom Day Sep 2007

Here comes 15th of the month, and is time to preen and prance around the blooms. Weather Gods are being benevolent. Although the day lengths have considerably reduced, but it is more fun to be outdoors, as the temperatures have come down to cool and comfortable levels. So, here I go clicking with thanks in my heart for Carol at Maydreams gardens, for this beautiful idea of Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.
Plumbago busy encroaching others' territory.
Alamanda accompanied by a Jatropha bloom in front. After braving months of heat, Roses are coming back in form. Though still small in size, they are a worthy indicator of good times ahead. Different types of Portulaca in one pot having a nice time. A Gladiolus complaining of the absence of support, still trying its best to stand straight. Gaillardia featuring for the third time in GBBD,couldn'nt help posting,they look lovely together. Bougainvillea in beatiful magenta looks gay The subtle shades of red on this Canna lily look amazing. Ixora- a new member in my Garden family A bunch of Plumeria imparts a serenity to my garden. Salvia- the only flower in Red. Lantana showcases its miniature blooms and lovely variegated leaves. Hibiscus blooms make a cool pair. Hedychium blooms are pristine white. An unknown bloom-I seek the help of my blogger friends in identifying this plant My little blossom poses amidst the blooms, to a proud mother, and a proud gardener…

Your little blossom is the cutest bloom of all!

Your other flowers are pretty, too

Yes, she is the most beautiful of all, and they all are wonderful!

Your garden looks great, especially with the small gardener as a focal point!

It intrigues me once again to see how many flowers India and Austin, Texas have in common. We've both featured white hedychium, plumeria, portulaca, salvia and lantana... but your unknown bloom may have to be identified by someone with a more tropical climate.

Happy Blooms, Greenthumb!

Beautiful blooms with that last being the most beautiful of all! Is it possible that your mystery plant is Eucharis amazonica 'Amazon Lily'? Looks like it! Thanks for sharing your garden!

Beautiful blooms--as Annie mentioned, I was struck by how many blooms you have in common with the tropical parts of our country. (And like others said, the last flower is the most beautiful of all!) :)

I've just found your blog, through the comment you left at May Dreams Gardens. it's great, and I'll be back. Like the others, I was surprised at how many of the flowers are the same as those currently blooming here in Italy - plumbago, lanterna and bougainvillea for example.

Beautiful portulac! I did not find any seeds this year and was so happy to see that they self-seeded. Love your little blossom. I bet she provides you with many moments of joy. Andrea

It's nice to see your contribution to GBBD dear Green Thumb. I see that you grow a very rare and adorable little flower in your garden, one that can walk and talk. ;-)

Like the Plumeria! The Ixora we grow here too but indoors of course. ;-)

I'm amazed to see roses thriving everywhere, no matter what climate!

You little one is so adorable, first time to your blog and totally loving every post, I personally like the fragrance of Hedychium, I think its called Sontaka in marathi. I used to have them in my balcony, back in Bombay...miss my garden so much...

Entangled said...

I'm surprised to see the Lantana. I have an Indian friend who thought I was very odd for planting it - to him it's a weed. We should all have such lovely weeds!

And I have to agree - you saved the best picture for last!

Your little blossom is shining brightly! Lovely photos, thanks for sharing.

Your daughter is adorable -I love the expression on her face. It is as if she is trying to decide what to do next. And you are lucky to have a garden helper. Your daughter will grow knowing the names of plants and how to tend to them. That is wonderful.

Plumeria is beautiful ... I love all the exotic (to me) flowers that you have in your garden. Then there are roses which seem to be growing everywhere in one variety or another. The Hedychium is so striking as are the Hibiscus!

Hello,
When I found your blog while researching for Mustard, I was thrilled. I am an aspiring gardener too and loved the idea of growing my own mustard.
Good blog, good pics and cute daughter :)

Nicole said...

Lovely blooms-and as usual many look like mine! Your daughter is growing more lovely in every photo-and such alert, intelligent eyes!

Seeing so many flowers in bloom inspires me to get into the dirt again. Darling garden helper!
