Garden Bloggers Blooms Day May 2009

Scorching Sun, smoldering earth, parched plants mark the mid may GBBD. The heat has been getting on me and my plants, though I did take a break from it all, but more about it later. Right now it is a desperate defiant attempt by the blooms to thrive. Sunflower Plumerias Canna Lily Adenium Trumpet vine Dwarf Ixora Russelia equistiiformis Clerodendron Thomsoni Heliconia Rostrata Quisqualis indica or the Rangoon creeper Lemonia spectabilis

Beautiful flowers. It is exciting to see what's blooming on the other side of the world.

Gail said...

Fantastic blooms...The Trumpet Vine is a good looking plant...Is it a high climber? gail

A perfect tropical Indian Garden, GT! Wow! Look at your Rangoon Creeper! It's madness! I went crazy when little bunches of flowers sparely covered my Rangoon Creeper. Seeing yours, I've turned mad! I so wish I can smell the fragrance of those Plumerias! Wonderful Photos!

Like Chandramouli I'm amazed to see the blooms on your Rangoon creeper. Wow! My trumpet creeper hasn't started flowering as yet. You're way ahead. Love that pink of the Plumeria!

Love that shade of salmon in the trumpet vine.

Lovely plants, With these plants blooming around i think you do get some relief from the scorching heat.

Even its getting so hot here in hills i can well imagine what it would be in Saharanpur.

But neways your blooms are just beautiful.

It is nice to see so many exotics which I can only grow as houseplants. I can almost smell the plumeria. Almost...

In our colder climate all your plants are houseplants to me. So it is wonderful to see them grown in the open as they should be :)

I love all the exotic colours and the plumeria is a favourite of mine for its fragrance :)

Fancy a spot of pond-dipping? Come to

For awhile I thought your climate was much like mine, but I do think it's closer to Florida's or Southern California. Lovely plants. I especially like the color of the Trumpet Vine.

I always enjoy my visits to your lovely blog, even though I don't seem to get over here often enough! Seeing your garden is a treat and I always learn about a plant I've never heard of! Thanks for sharing:-)
