Hello and welcome to Garden Bloggers' bloom day where gardeners around the globe show what is blooming in their gardens. It has been hot and humid with heavy showers. I am looking forward to when the nights become cooler and the trade winds begin to do their thing. Meanwhile I just have to brave the heat and look for a shady spot to sit and daydream.  To see what is blooming in other people's gardens please visit Carol at May dreams gardens
Have a great week gardening!


  1. Beautiful!
    Happy GBBD!

  2. Fabulous selection of blooms! The Brassavola Orchid is simply stunning, and I love that red Mussaenda.

  3. It is so neat to see unusual plants. at least unusual for me! I would absolutely love to be able to grow bird of paradise. We went to the Mayan Riviera in March and there was a huge bed of it blooming. Thank you for sharing

  4. I love your interesting tropical blooms and you can have them all year round! Happy GBBD!

  5. I would faint if I had orchids growing in my garden! And Bird of Paradise--one of my favorites. Lucky you! Your garden is stunning. Happy Bloom Day!

  6. You still have lots of gorgeous blooms to enjoy despite the HOTTT weather here on the island.
    I myself have lost a few patio plants.
    The bird of paradise is beautiful. Congrats on your first bloom.
