Garden Blogger's Bloom Day march 2015

 My Pride of Dominica (sabinea carinalis) is in bloom again the second time for the year.

 This lovely Edith Randig waterlily has beautiful multi coloured foliage.

 Frangipanis are now blooming and filling the garden with their seductive scent.

 When the Bougainvillea starts to bloom it is  a sure sign that the dry season in full swing.

Hello and welcome to Garden Blogger's Bloom Day where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. I am posting this late because I spent the day mowing the grass and tidying up around the garden. My camera batteries died on me so I used my phone to take these photos. 
The dry season is here and blooms that tell us that are plentiful in the garden. The frangipanis have lost all their old leaves and blooms adorn the sparsely leafed trees.
To see more of what is blooming please take a stroll over to Carol's garden at May Dreams Gardens 
Have a great week gardening!
