The back garden was a riot of colour with containers filled with blooming plants.
A spectacular bloom of this phalenopsis orchid.
I was in awe of these beautiful anthuriums.
Impatiens dotted this container garden
On Sunday the local Horticultural Society commenced their open garden program. Located in the parish of St. John the garden covered approximately 21/2 acres. The hub was at the back of the house where there was an explosion of colour. It is still a young garden with many of the trees still in their youth. There were stunning sights like the white petrea cascading along a support and thunbergia grandiflora on the lawn.
Next week the open garden will be in the Sandy Lane area. Even though I had announced the beginning of our official dry season in my last blog or two, it has been a very wet January. It has rained every day so far. So please take what I say about the weather with a fistful of salt.
Happy gardening for 2013 and have a great week!
