Its been raining almost everyday here either that or the days are gloomy with dark clouds overhead. But luckily my garden has a fair share of its flowers still blooming for the Garden Bloggers' Blooming Day hosted by Carol of May Dreams Gardens every middle of the month.
these are white senduduk (tibouchina urvilleana), seldom see this colour...I was excited and luckily I took the photos when they were just about to open up, then they dropped off after a very heavy rain that evening!
my recently planted single layer portulucas have started to bloom, since then I have acquired other colours and double layered ones too
not sure of what flower bud this is...
then it blooms..looks like an orchid but the leaves look like something else..
thanks to Bernie this is called Yellow Walking Iris ( Neomarica Longifolia)
white plumeria blooming, the cuttings given by my sister
dark pink of mandevilla
the rain did not deter these flowers, Brunfelsia (thanks to Bernie), to bloom although they look so delicate, in fact they seem to love the rain and flower profusely!
Although the rainy season had reaked havoc in some places like our east coast areas and Queensland in Australia, and did some damage to our plants in the garden, the emergence of a small tiny bud will cheer us up a bit. Lets move DownUnder to look at Bush Bernie's Garden Blog for more varieties of tropical blooms.
