It's anudder bloomin' Friday!

This cattleya orchid is about 8 years old and has only bloomed once before a few years ago. It was Home depot special.

Welcome to blooming Friday! The frangipani is beginning to bloom, the bougainvillea a drought lover is in its glory. For more blooming Friday please take a stroll over to Katarina from roses and stuff. Have a great weekend my friends!


  1. What lovely flowers you have today. I like this colour combo of your cattleya. I want your frangipani to wear on my hair.

  2. I love your colorful blooms! A joy to see when one is blue and surrounded by snow showers. Lovely!! ;>)

  3. Ahh, Home depot specials. I have a couple of encyclia hybrids from Home depot bags that I leave out except for hard freezes... best orchids EVER!

  4. Absolutely beautiful pictures! Sitting here in a college dormitory in cold and rainy New England they make me quite jealous.

  5. frangipani is gorgeous...i second autumn. I want to wear it too...

  6. Orchids are extraordinary plant! They like to surprise us with their blooms. Btw, that's a beautiful cattleya. Hope it stay longer for you to enjoy the flower :-D

  7. You mean to say frangipani is not flowering all year round in your area? But here it does, and because its habit is like that, we should be guilty we forgot all about it.

  8. Oh my goodness, those flowers are just too gorgeous. I love them all but I gotta say you lucked out on the Home Depot purchase!

  9. Autumn Belle....remember which side you must wear them on to tell the world that you are already taken LOL.

    Carol.....I do hope that spring comes along asap for you.

    Rainforest gardener....welcome, whenever I get to Miami or my hubby I do manage to pick up a few specials.

    College very happy to meet you and welcome to my garden. Let us hope that it warms up soon so that spring can get off to a good start.

    Urban and Autumn Belle are like two sweet peas in a pod LOL.

    Stephanie......I do agree that Orchids are full of surprises with their beautiful blooms.

    Andrea .....our frangipani looses all their leaves during the rainy season and start blooming in the dry season.

    Jean.......yes I did lucked out on my home depot purchase. I have another orchid I bought a few years ago that is struggling.
