Exotica

It is a beautiful season. There is magic in the air and on the ground as well! looking at the profuse blooms gives a joy unparalleled in nature. This year I added some new flowers to my collection and thankfully they have all bloomed, with the unfortunate exception of Tulips. It may be the weather... or soil...or plain bad luck, but the Tulips have not blessed my garden by blooming. Silver lining is that the local nursery guy has taken a fancy for Tulips after looking at the awesome curiosity and demand they generated, so I can look forward to pushing my luck again next year. That’s what i love about gardening - the potential for continuous change. It raises my oxytocin levels to no end to see these exotic flowers blooming here in my garden. In fact the desire to flaunt these exotica pushed me out of my extreme lethargy to write this blog post :-) Liliums... Primroses... Hyacinths... are the first time bloomers. There were many issues i had with life in a small city, and not getting flower seeds/bulbs of my choice was one of them. But there seems to be a change in the air. The tastes of people are changing. And, thankfully, some nurseries here are receptive of the changing tastes.They have stocked up on many hybrids and different varieties of flowering plants. I think I can look forward to a good gardening season ahead.

Loved the liliums. The last red primrose looks exactly like a 10 year old one in our garden, ours is huge though.

You've got some gorgeous color going on now!!! I am seeing so much more coming into the garden centers here as well...lots of new hybrids!!! Too much fun I say!!!!!

Ivor said...

Lovely blooms and colors, they look so fresh and healthy. Especially like the first three.

Lovely flowers! It is difficult to grow them here. The iris bulbs I brought from the Himalayas are thriving, but not blooming.

Cosmos said...

Beautiful flowers with all different colours on display! Though the display is delayed it is worth.

Beautiful and fabulous captures of flowers.I also have some lilies in my garden area.

sangeeta said...

Those hyacinths are so rare ..Nice to know that you are getting them easily.

The tulip bulbs will be there for the next season too i guess , you don't need to get new bulbs.

Lovely blooms! I did grow a few liliums this year but primroses don't do well here. We get to see some cold climate flowers...I keep wondering how these nursery owners do it. I'd love to grow hyacinths in the future. I'll be on the lookout!:)

Your blooms certainly lifted my Oxytocin levels. Wonder if you have the scarlet lily beetle that is the new pest on lilies here in the UK

I have recently gotten into gardening myself for the sake of herbal medicines. Your love of gardening and the knowledge you have can, I think, come in handy here http://www.jaagore.com/project/herbal-garden-and-training-centre I am an ardent supporter of herbalogy and am always on the lookout for chance to learn something new. We should meet some time and share our ideas. Sorry do not have a blog/site yet.

At whatever point you see the last result of a very much arranged potato, persons scarcely ever consider the exertion that goes into delivering it. Potatoes can be bought from any neighborhood nourishment store and are entirely easy to cook with such a large number of various structures which is the thing that makes it such an extraordinary determination for the kitchen. Potatoes might be heated, squashed, or put into soups yet in many cases it is utilized as a side part to different nourishments.
