I was pretty busy with so many things besides gardening...being a first time Grandma and all! So today Im posting some photos of whats blooming in my garden though not all the flowers since I have shown them before in previous posts.
the delicate lacy white petals reminded me of a ballerina's tutu...
the new bud is white but slowly will turn very pale pink/peach as it opens up...
male flowers of the snake gourd
the female flower which will grow as gourd later if its polinated or else it will just drop off
more female blooms
new flower buds coming up
snake gourds so called because of its shape - longish like a snake, here shown the plants are supported by trellis or poles
I was sure I planted bitter gourds or angled luffa but then they turned out to be snake gourds when they started showing their delicate lacy flowers (thanks to Antara of Garden Jewels)
a sweet frangrance is coming from my pink/white Plumeria Acuminata (pointed frangipani)
Go over to Carol's blog to see whats blooming in her garden this June.
