Garden Blogger's Bloom Day March 2012

 We were driving along this country road chatting when this view stopped us in our tracks!
 We stopped and knocked at the cottage door and a window opened with a smiling face behind it.
  Chinaman's hat and cherry jubilee Alamanda happily coexisting.
 Cigarette Cuphea adding a splash of colour here.
 Crotons took on a special brilliance in this garden!

 Eureen at the front of her cottage.
 Begonias, Crotons, Pandanus and Pointsettia all competing for attention.
 Poinsettia still showing off her blooms.
 Morning glory brightening up this tree trunk.
 White Begonias
 Asparagus fern merrily rambling along a fence.
 Green Chinaman's hat
 Impatiens were popping up here and there
 This colourful croton was to die for.

 This Sansevieria was unknown to me and Eureen shared a piece. She told me that it perfumes the garden when in bloom.
Hello and welcome to Garden Blogger's Bloom Day where gardeners from all around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. Last month I was gallivanting around the island with a friend who follows my blog in Australia. Yes I said Australia, as we were driving along a country road  in the parish of St. John we came across this gem of a garden owned by a sweet lady by the name of Eureen. It was a cornucopia of colour and plants. She was happy to show us around and talk to us about her garden which has been featured in many international publications. I can only describe this garden as a true Caribbean cottage garden. To see more blooming gardens please go over to Carol's blog at may dreams gardens


  1. What a gorgeous garden. Thanks for sharing. It was lovely to visit and meet the proud owner.

  2. I would have stopped, too. The lady's cottage and her gardens is more lovely than any mansion I've seen in my lifetime. Love it.

  3. I love Eureen's tropical cottage garden and am going to work on making mine look more like hers.

    Thank you so much for sharing this lovely creation of Eureen's with us.

  12. Wow Eurleen certainly has a green thumb Her cottage and garden reminds me so much of many rural areas in my homeland of Jamaica. I must make one correction the plant that blooms the scented flower spike is member of the dracaena species and not Sansevieria.
    Thanks for have such a wonderful garden and blog site for others to enjoy.

  13. Wonderful really awesome all flowers are so nice if in garden then garden impression is too much..
