Blooming Flowers

Flaunting my blooming flowers from the garden and vegetable beds.



our National flower the Hibiscus rosa-sinensis



Hippeastrum reticulatum sometimes called 'amaryllis' by nurseries or a variety of Dutch Hybrids




a delicate tissue-like flower of a bean plant or something else I planted which I have forgotten to note down the name!



Clerodendrum incisum (Musical Note Plant)



purple impatiens balsamina


Melastoma malabathricum (sendudok) white variety


Tibouchina urvilleana (sendudok) purple variety

Japannese honeysuckle or Lonicera japonica, the seedling was given by my friend Noni, it is a woody vine that has a sweet fragrance



Thevetia peruviana (peach)


Thevetia peruviana (yellow), this plant's white sap is poisonous or toxic, so must warn your small children when handling the flowers


Adenium obesum (desert rose), the first bloom since I cut the whole plant bald end of last year!


Texas sage or Ash plant ( Leucophyllum frutescens)




my okra having a blooming time now

Great selection of flowers ... the bean plant flower is particularly interesting. Love the Thevetias and the Japanese Honeysuckle, and the colour of that Hippeastrum is just beautiful.

You have so many flowers I've never seen, the white tissue one is really different, and the clerodendrum incisum is also so lovely.

All your blooms are spectacular. I love hibiscus...it is such a beautiful and bold and big bloom. And if you ever find out what that lacy bloom is, I would love to know. It is a very interesting flower.

Andrea said...

That unknown plant is very beautiful, havent seen something like that. I hope it gets some seeds. Do you know if its also one of the cucurbits?

Congratulations on becoming a grandmother and Happy Mother's Day! I think the same flowers that grow there also grow well in Florida! I have some similar in my garden. However, not the pretty transparent bloom.... so delicate looking. All your photos are so good...thanks for sharing your blooms!

You really have lovely flowers. Funny to see Japanese honeysuckle which is considered a noxious weed here. I love its scent. Congratulations on the birth of your grandchild.

Hello fellow bloggers, thanks for visiting and leaving your lovely comments, thank your for the good wishes on the occasion of my being a first Grandma. It certainly changed my life...such a hectic week but an exciting one! Ive found out about the pretty unusual lacy blooms - its the bloom of a cucurbit family (Andrea you are right about that!),known in India as the Kakdi, a type of cucumber known as Armenian cucumber, snake cucumber or snake melon.Visit Antara's blog the Garden Jewels at http://antarasgarden.blogspot.com/2011/05/surprises-this-week.html. Thanks Antara for visiting my small garden or I wouldnt have find out about the plant, though I dont remember seeing that in the seed packet! But I remember, I planted some bitter gourd seeds..but I got a different surprise!

Thanks once again to you all, I will try to visit your posts as soon as I can find some free time!
