GBBD April-2009

Mid April is a season of mixed blessings here in Indiagrden. The spring blooms are ebbing away and summer annuals are gradually showing up. It is a cauldron of gifts from both the seasons which I display here as a part of GBBD post started by Carol of Maydreamgardens.Petunia Chincherinchee Rose Crape jasmine Dahlia Brunfelsia americana Hibiscus Hollyhock Easter Lily Gladioli Gaillardia Plumbago BouganvilleaThese are the babies I nurtured over the late winter and spring season. Some of them will not survive the harsh summers and will be replaced by their summer cousins. Winter, spring or summers, it is a show which goes on; the characters change but the show goes on….

Lovely...I remember my first summer gardening here (over 20 years ago) I fell in love with Brunfelsia americana. They called it Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow... Does it have a tiny bit of fragrance? That's what I remember! gail

Boy! You sure have some beauties! I really like the petunia, it really pops!

Gaillardia and dahlias are amazing! Bouganvillea is one of my favorites, but we have to grow them in pots here, and move them inside during the winter.

Your flowers look great - by the way I have added your blog to my blogroll. Your Brunfelsia is interesting - I have Brunfelsia too and it will start blooming from now onward here in Japan, but the color changes from a bluish purple to white. I also bought Gaillardia seeds when I visited India in Feb and have planted them in pots. I miss the fragrant flowers of India!

Jamie said...

I adore your flowers - especially the dahlia - that coloring is remarkable! Thanks for sharing!

Nicole said...

Wow wow wow, you have so many beautiful blooms. Love the hollyhock and dahlias and all of them!

Prospero said...

Your gladiolus is beautiful. Do all your bougainvillea look that good? Mine look pretty bad after the March winds we get here.

Julie said...

Is there one flower you cannot grow there??? LOL! Your plants are gorgeous!!!

As always, your blooms are lovely. I've never seen a Rose like that Pink and white. Great photos, as always, GT.

Beautiful blooms, I specially like the white hibiscus. I have a brunfelsiaa americana in my garden that I love dearly, the aroma is second to none

Layanee said...

I love your show! The change in characters are what keeps the garden interesting isn't it so?

Annie in Austin said...

The cauldron of gifts from the garden appears to be overflowing, Green Thumb! They're all beautiful but the white hibiscus is especially graceful.

Happy Blooming Day - hope things don't heat up too fast for you.

The white hibiscus is lovely. We have a lot of them around Southern California, but I don't think I've ever seen a pure white one.

So many flowers !!
Stunning !!
Can't pick my favorite.
You've reminded me that only a few of my hollyhock have germinated.
Hollyhocks tend to get rust disease in my garden :(

Jan (Thanks For 2 Day) said...

Hi GreenThumb, Everything looks gorgeous, as usual! You always have one of the nicest gardens I visit. It must be a beautiful site to see in person! Have a wonderful day! Jan

Gosh! You have many wonderful blooms there :)

I particularly like your chincheree and the bougainvillea, as I don't have those in my garden :)

Daryl said...

Like what i seen here, it was very interesting to see and visit all
the great stuff on here, and would very much recommend this site to someone else also. Great Job...
