Bloomday November 2012

Can you imagine that I have forgotten the name of this plant? So I am asking any of you who might know to please enlighten me. Whoopee ...it is known as the lipstick plant (Aeschynanthus radicans). Thank you Dawn Barrow!
 Passion fruits are in season and I am having to fight off the rats and monkeys.

 Hello and welcome to garden bloggers bloom day where gardeners from around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens.  It has been a very hot November so far with no signs of cooling down.
My sincerest condolences to the families on the North East coast of the USA who have suffered loss of life and property from hurricane Sandy,  I wish them a speedy recovery and to be strong. I follow some blogs in that region and I cannot begin to imagine what they must be going through.

To see more blooming gardens please go over to Carol at may dreams gardens.
