Garden Bloggers Blooms Day Feb15
Its time for another Garden Bloggers Blooms Day hosted on the 15th of every month by Carol at May Dreams Garden , but this time my GBBD post has a slight twist! As I have come to Delhi at my Mom's place for some time, the pics featured here are from a Community Garden in the colony where we stay. Spring is in full glory here.There were rows and rows of lovely Calendulas bordered by some Indian pinks. And there were rows of Sweet William bordered by very sweet smelling Alyssum.My cutie pie is happily providing scale:) There were these round beds full of some nice seasonal annuals beneath the lined Ashoka trees. Alyssum Verbena Phlox These two photos are of an unidentified bloom.I urge my blogger friends to help me identify it...b'coz it's lovely and I would like to grow it my garden too. In one corner of the garden were these somewhat neglected Kalanchoes (kalanchoe mortagei )blooming freely in gay abandon! The Garden was lined by some very tall Eucalyptus trees which were swaying happily in the spring breeze against the beautiful blue backdrop of crystal clear sky. My daughter rejoiced and very zealously posed for me. In this way my garden visit came to end, but I will always remember this garden which, though not very big in size, had certain very impressive features like lovely colour combinations, neatly cut hedges and myriad blooms.
