Bloomsday August 2010

My orchids are slowly making a comeback after being divided and repotted many months ago.

These mesmerizing blue water lilies are quite rare in Europe.

Many are surprised to hear that blue ones exist.
Welcome to garden bloggers bloomday where gardeners from all over the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. My garden is sodden from the frequent heavy showers we have been experiencing. For more bloomsday blooms please stroll over to May dreams gardens  to see what is blooming.
