Garden Blogger's Bloom Day December 2013

 This blue Baleria obtusa or bush violet caught my eye this morning. I was surprised to see how well it looks since it is quite old and has been cut back frequently.
 A newer dwarf Baleria variety I use as a border plant.
 Here I have dwarf Balerias bordering pink pentas.
 White begonias are enjoying the cooler nights we are now experiencing with strong trade winds.

Deep blue duranta repens blooms drooping under the weight of the top heavy shrub.
 My snow on the mountain an euphorbia leucocephala  is not as spectacular this year as years gone by. The old one finally fell and this is a younger shrub whose shape will improve with future pruning.
Welcome to Garden Blogger's Bloom Day where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. Christmas is ten days away and this year the Christmas spirit has not caught up with me as yet.  
To see more blooming gardens please visit Carol at May dreams gardens
Wishing all a peaceful and joyous holiday season! 


  1. Beautiful blooms!
    Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  2. We have a lot of the same blooms. I have Philippine Violet which is Baleria cristata. I had to look it up as your Blue Baleria obtusa looks similar, well, it's no wonder they do.

    Happy Gardening ~ FlowerLady
