I am still enjoying my lagerstromia speciosa or Pride of India . It is now in full bloom.
And guess what? I went out and bought myself a blue Lagerstromia . It has lost all its leaves due to the disturbance but there are some small shoots coming out on the branches. Whoopee!
My ever faithful cattleya orchid with four blooms on it. I plan to divide it into three plants when it has finished blooming
Hello friends and welcome to Garden Blogger's Bloom Day where folks around the world show what is blooming in their garden at this time. To see more gardens please take a stroll over to Carol at May dreams garden.
My Jamaican rain tree (brya ebenus) fell during the storm (Tomas)last year, I got the car to help pull it up earlier this year. It was staked and during the rains we had a few months ago it fell AGAIN. So last weekend I got the car and pulled it back up and it was staked AGAIN. Yesterday morning I glanced across the field to see how the tree was doing. I looked and looked, rubbed my eyes a few times and SHRIEKED "where the hell is my tree?" My garden helper looked at me, I asked him if he knew what had happened to the tree we staked up last weekend and he answered no. So I quickly jogged (I did) over to the spot and found the tree lying on the ground AGAIN. The stakes weren't properly placed and the wind had blown it down. I went and brought the car down and to my surprise my garden helper had already pulled it back up by himself and re staked it AGAIN. This time we added an additional stake for safety. I checked this morning and the tree was still standing. I don't really know how much more of this I can take!
