GBBD OCTOBER 2008

Beautiful, comfortable outdoors with autumn at its prime ensure that I feel like having a second spring this 15th October 2008; A very Happy GBBD to you all! By some coincidence I have a purple predominance this October. Most of the blooms are in some lovely shade of purple.The first in the list is the gorgeous Garlic vine which is looking like a giant bouquet on the front wall. Shooting star flower or Pseuderanthemum laxiflorum A solitary Brinjal bloom... Thunbergia Grandiflora Portulaca Even the weeds' flowers are purple. Periwinkle Ruellia Brittoniana Plumeria rubra Celosia Water Lily And breaking the monopoly of purple are some very lovely yellow flowers. Yellow, considered to be an auspicious color in Indian tradition, is gracing the garden in the Hindu Festive season.The first one is the Shrimp plant or Pachystachys lutea Allamanda Papaya blooms Lantana Portulaca again Gourd blooms Joining the Bandwagon are the red blooms, the first one being the eternal favourite-Rose Salvia Splendens Variegated Lantana And finalyy a lovely peach coloured Hibiscus...

That is a wonderful lantana - your garden is so lush. Love seeing all those 'tropicals' growing outside - I'm madly trying to get all mine in before the heavy frost.

So many beautiful blooms! I love that garlic vine. Wish I had one. The shape and color are just as I like in a vine.

You have some beautifull flovers in your garden. I loved the garlic vine. Wonder if this is posible to have outside here in Norway, or if it must be an indorplant in my area.

What a wonderful palette! There's no better artist than Nature herself and she painted the scene at your garden more beautifully!

Gorgeous blooms! I really like the variegated lantana. Does it grow tall? I only have the wild ones in my garden.

I am so, so envious Green Thumb. That garlic vine is stupendous. I've never seen it before. Do you by chance know the Latin name. I'd love to see if I could grow it here.

What a lot of colour in your garden, dear Green Thumb! Love that Garlic vine. Does it smell of garlic?

Your waterlily is very pretty, what fun that it is poking its head above the water instead of floating on the surface.

Love the peach colour of your hibiscus, mine is a purply blue colour and has long finished flowering.

That Garlic Vine is over the top! I've never heard of it, and since we share so many other plants in common, I'm wondering if I might be able to grow it here. Do you know the latin name for it? Beautiful blooms, and I hope the Monsoons have put you under water.
