Garden Bloggers Blooms Day

A very Happy Blooms Day to all.Blooming today in my garden are Dianthus and Petunia in their pink glory. Marigold,merry as ever. Hibiscus or gurhal as is known in Hindi brightening the landscape. Roses in so many colours and hues imparting their divine fragrance to my garden. Oleander displaying its exquisite blooms. Dahlias with their beautifully shaded flowers That's the picture story of my garden as it stands now. Unfortunately, with every passing day, sun is getting harsher and that doesn't spell too good for flowering plants but this time I am determined to get some heat hardy plants to ensure a perma-bloom in my garden.

Wow, I'm surprised you can grow Dianthus in India. Mine always struggle through the heat of the summer here.
Beautiful pictures! One of the nice things about global garden blogging is that something nice is always blooming somewhere.

Christa said...

The Dianthus look lovely. I bet they smell wonderful, too! That last dahlia looks so interesting, with the white mixed in. I love all kinds of dahlias.

Carol Michel said...

What beautiful flowers. I can almost smell those roses, and I can tell you are a passionate gardener. Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Hallo, what a lot of beautiful flowers and Dahlias one of my favorit. I often plant them from seed because I enjoy the process, to see them grow from seed to magnificant flower.
I´m from Stockholm, Sweden. The spring is here and the growers season begins :-) finally.
My blog is mainly in swedish but I do write some in english, welcome. So very nice to meet you and your blog.

It is just unbelievable to see that the roses are blooming in your garden and especially Dahlia which still has a loooong way to go over here in Germany. Thank you for your pictures. Kind regards, Andrea

Dear Green Thumb,

It is so nice to know that your garden is full of blooms! Lovely to look at all the flowers too! I love roses and dahlias - such exquisite flowers, aren't they?

Tira said...

What exquisite blooms-you obviously put a lot into your garden. Love the roses and Dahlias-you make me want to go order some dahlia seeds...

Yolanda Elizabet Heuzen said...

Dear Green Thumb,

What a colourful display! Dianthus is one of my favorite flowers because they are beautiful and they smell good too.

Roses, lovely roses, how wonderful to have them in flower already.

I hope you can think of a plan to keep your garden interesting all year round. That's not an easy thing to do, so good luck!

Unknown said...

I, too, was struck by how similar your garden plants there are to ours here. Beautiful pictures! :)

The colours of the roses and dahlias took my breath away.

kate said...

I learned something new today - gurhal stands for hibiscus in Hindi. Your roses are beautiful.

Since reading about liverlilies, I am having great fun looking at all the herbal remedies and how they came to be. It is fascinating!

Tira said...

How about planting a couple lovely flowering trees, well placed? That would provide the dappled shade for some flowers. Thats how I get certain flowers and vegetables. A frangipani/plumeria tree would also provide fragrant flowers, and you can train certain flowering vines on one, too.

Andrea's Garden said...

hi there, thought I drop by again. Stop by my page, there is a surprise waiting for you there. Greetings from Germany, Andrea

Green thumb said...

Thanks for visiting entangled. you are quite right, in fact one of the reasons I love blogging is that there is always something interesting somewhere.
thanks Christa and yes they do smell wonderfully. Dahlias, for their sheer beauty and size are one of my favourites too.
Thanks for the compliment Carol. I wish I can match up to the standards of you veterans of garden blogging.

Thanks Andrea for the visit and I am really humbled by the recognition you have shown to my blog by way of your 'Thinking blogger award'.
Thanks Thalia, yes I love all these flowers and also would love to have all the fun and adventure you have had in wild!
Thanks Nicole and what a wonderful idea, in fact I am on it right away!
Thanks again Yolanda, with inspiration and help from your writings and your garden, I'll find a way to keep my garden interesting all year round.
Thanks Blackswamp girl, I am glad you found the pics beautiful though I wish to have a better camera. Love the pics you have in your blog.
Thanks dear wildlife gardener, and so did your 'little corner of paradise', it also took my breath away!
Thanks for the visit dear Kate, I really appreciate the interest you have shown to imbibe the new 'hindi' word for hibiscus.

Gotta Garden said...

Beautiful colors! So inspiring! I like them all! Btw, I meant to mention that I liked the name of that Buddha Belly plant...that's a laugh, and I could see the little belly!

Fragrant gardens are the very me...and I can see you must like fragrance also!

Sorry I am late!

Tira said...

A subtropical climate does give you a lot of options and range! I recently read a gardening book review in New York Times that has given me a lot of ideas-the book is Pots in the Garden: Expert Design and Planting by Ray Rogers and you can browse many of its pictures at
