Garden Blogger's Bloomday November 2013

Dendrobium orchid

This sphinx moth feeding on this butterfly ginger. On looking closer I realised it had died while feeding. What a way to go!
 Anthurium lily
Pride of  Barbados
 Desert Rose always in bloom
 Jamaican poinsettia blooming for the first time.
 I am making some orchid baskets for myself and for orders. If you need to order just send me an email or check Caribbean gardeners and homeowners page on FB

Hello and welcome to Garden Blogger's bloom day where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. The rustic Bajan Gardener has neglected her garden and is now trying to get things back in order. She is still picking at the homestead and in between looking at the weeds that have taken over her garden. To see more of what is blooming in other people's gardens please go over to Carol at May dreams gardens 
Have a great weekend my friends!
