Pentas and Martinique cuphea vying for attention.
Gingers enjoying the abundant rainy season.
White gingers just flourishing in this area under the shade of the bearded fig tree
Bilbergias giving stiff competition to the nearby gingers.
Flamboyant or Royal Poinciana lighting up the skies with a burst of flames.
Heliconia rostrata, Boston ferns and gloriosa lily make fine companions.
Night blooming cereus or epiphyllum oxypetalum filling the night air with its sensous perfume. The blooms only last a night and to keep the bloom a longer time, just cut it while it is open (around midnight) and place it in the refrigerator in a plastic bag.
Hello and welcome to Garden Bloggers Bloom Day where gardeners all around the globe show what is blooming in their gardens. My garden is awash with blooms and greenery. The rainy season has begun with frequent showers occurring during the day and night. It is hot and humid and my plants are loving it more than I am.
My Jamaican rain tree (brya ebenus)fell AGAIN and we discovered after digging around the roots that it was dying, so it was removed. Probably a victim of the great flood I had in April. I have several smaller ones in pots so all is not lost. To see what is blooming in other gardens around the globe please visit Carol on Friday at May dreams gardens. Happy gardening my friends!
