Garden Blogger's Bloom day June 2014

 I went to visit one of my favorite nurseries after a year's absence. I came back with a trunk full of new additions for the garden.

I have even started a succulent bowl. Succulents were never a favorite of mine but recently I have seen really lovely arrangements, so I thought I would give them a try.

  Have been attaching young orchid plants on this tree stump I picked up on the side of the road. I am hoping that most of them take root and can't wait to see them in bloom.
 I bought two of these spathiphyllums aka giant peace lilies. I know they are slug and snail food but I plan to keep a sharp eye on them

 Got meself some Vanilla orchids woo hoo! I am going to try producing some vanilla!
 It is still bone dry and no rain as yet. This is our 15th week with no rain. My water bill was horrendous the last two months.
Dark clouds teasing
The Delonix regia is now beginning to show her colours  aka Royal Poincianna, flamboyant, gul mohur

Hello and welcome to Garden Blogger's Bloom day where gardeners around the globe show what is blooming in their gardens.  We are experiencing some very serious drought conditions and badly in need of some rain. The clouds are looking like rain but the wind is high and they are blown out to sea. We've had a few sprinkles but those quickly evaporate in the heat. To see what is blooming in other gardens please visit Carol at May dreams gardens
Have a great week and do a rain dance for me please.
