April Blooms Day!

Its that time of the month again for garden bloggers from all over the world, to show what's blooming in their gardens. Yes...the Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day! Moreover today is Friday, a weekly flaunting of flowers at Tootsie Time!


Besides my white and peach hibiscus which have been blooming continuously for more than a month now, I have these blooming flowers to colour my garden!




very sweet and cute self-seeded pink/white Torenia Founieri



Bunga Melati scientificically named Wrightia antidysenterica or commonly called Artic Snow or Milkyway (thanks again to Bernie), also known as Thailand Jasmine ( courtesy of Milka), though not sure whether its under the jasmine family but this one does not have any sweet fragrance like jasmine. Love the pure white little flowers!


Ruellia Brittoniana purple, the pink one has not bloom yet


red balsams (Impatiens Balsamina)



pink balsams


the red and pink balsams are having a great blooming time in my new flower bed



even the wild morning glory in my backyard has a miniature version!



lots of male and female pumpkin flowers from my pumpkin patch - hope to have at least a few pumpkins soon!


the shocking pink flowers of Texas Sage





Have a nice weekend gardening!

Lovely flowers! Your balsam still looks like rose to me. And that pink or peach balsam is really sweet. Actually your red frangipani is really huge now. Feel free to collect anytime.

Bernie said...

You have lots of lovely things blooming away in your garden right now. Your Impatiens balsamina are so pretty.

The brilliant white flower is Wrightia antidysenterica 'Arctic Snow', which I also grow. I really love the pure white flowers on this. It's commonly called Milky Way or Arctic Snow.

Food so delicious! said...

The flowers are lovely!! Do show us your pumpkin.. I always find pumpkin a very hard to grow vegetable.. sigh.. I get a lot of vine and flowers but no fruit.... sigh..

Have a great weekend P3..

Lovely, lovely flowers in your garden! I think the balsam look like beautiful roses and the peach colour tone is especially attractive.

I really like the torenia. I grew it the first time ever last year and it flowered all summer. I wonder if I will see seeds starting.

My first squash seedlings are just pushing their heads up above the soil - and there you are with flowers already! Love the colour of that Texas sage. Happy GBBD.

You have so many beautiful flowers, and every time you have one or two I have not seen before. Thank you for such an interesting post!

Cat said...

So nice to see all the spring blooms in your garden! You got a great capture of the little white flower - it's hard to photograph white flowers! Hope you have a great weekend and happy GBBD!

HolleyGarden said...

Your torenia is so cute! I've seen this, but have never had it in my garden. Now that I know it's a long bloomer, I may give it a try.

Val said...

Beautiful pictures.

milka said...

The white flower is Thailand Jasmine, looks sweet but no smell. Does your pumpkin start to fruit yet? Mine botak kena makan by the 'flies' (the orange flies that always attack cucurbits leaves) and i've thrown it away... *sniff*!!

Mel Cole said...

Wow, you got beautiful blooms! My Fertilizer fridayHope you can visit mine too.

kitchen flavours said...

Your flowers are very pretty and they must be quite a lovely site in your garden! Wish I could plant more flowers!

Donna said...

Lovely exotic flowers...I love the first one especially...happy GBBD

One Im so sorry I totally forgotten about the frangipani, will try next week.Thank you.

Thank you Bernie again you are angel for letting me know the name of the white flower aptly named the Artic Snow.

Food..will cross my fingers the pumpkin will show some fruits since they have so many flowers.But so far, about 4 had dropped off, I think they have not been pollinated by the male flowers. Though I tried to hand-pollinate them, hopefully will show something soon!

Thanks Autumn Belle, the are my favourites at the moment. But actually those are pink balsams, but because of the lighting, they appeared as peach.

I love them too Donna, Im trying to get the blue ones and together they will make lovely borders.

p3chandan said...

Thank you Mr Lrong.

We had a head start from you Janet, while your spring has just started!

You are most welcome Rebecca.

Thank you Rainfield..Im sweet n sour sometimes! hehehe..

Thank you Allen and Siteseer. Nice of you to drop by my garden!

p3chandan said...

Thanks TheGardeningBlog, Cat and Dorothy, I too love the pure white little flowers and Bernie informed me that its called Artic Snow or Milky Way.Happy GBBD too all!

Thanks Muhammad and Holley, I too adore the cute pink flowers of torenia. Hope to get the blue variety next. Happy Blooms Day!

Thanks Val and Mel!Happy GBBD to you!

Thanks Milka, Thailand Jasmine? Its also called Artic Snow and Milky Way. My pumpkin patch has lots of flowers but the little fruits dropped off after a few wks, so Ive tried hand pollination on them, to motivate them...see in a few wks time if my help is successful!

Thanks Masha, wish I could have roses, roses and roses like your beautiful garden!

Joy thanks, why not plant more flowers, if no space, hang in pots but I think your garden has ample space!

Thank you Donna!

I love the bunga melati too Bangchik, cos I have a thing for all white flowers!


Mac,at the moment balsams are my favourite flowers in my garden, their double layered blooms look so gorgeous!

Im so envious of your garden Amy, the variety of flowers you can grow are so wide. I wish I could grow them here!

Thank you Rosie, I love your lovely garden too and those macro shots, they are so superb!
