Whooo Hooo it rained today !

 A sight to behold this morning!

 I walked by these Spathiphyllums aka peace lily early one morning and did an about turn after smelling a beautiful perfume. I followed my nose and it led me to these. I never knew Spaths were scented.

 A new display stand I recently bought.
 My latest acquisition I don't exactly know how I will use it but I will figure something sooner or later. 

It rained today and I was elated. I called my mom to find out if she had rain as well and was told that it was bone dry on the south of the island. I do hope they get some later and I am trying not to be too happy! WHOOO HOOO !

Garden blogger's Bloom Day April 2016

 My three Pink cassia grandis trees are in bloom around the garden.
 These remind me of the Rosebuds you see along the roads in North and South Carolina and in Virginia.

Rosebud tree in South Boston Virginia.

 The water level in the ponds is low and am hoping for a day of rain to fill them.
 The sky clouded up yesterday, I got excited  and we got some badly needed showers.

Frangipani in bloom, the air is filled with its perfume.

 Hello and welcome to GBBD where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens.  It has been Hotttt and dry. We are in drought mode and remain on water restrictions. This however has not stopped many of the drought loving trees and shrubs from bursting forth with their blooms. 
I have been growing some annuals for sale at the local farmer's market and have been designing and building space saving plant display units. 
 My gardener and I collaborated and we came up with this. We used recycled wood.
To see more blooming gardens please hop over to Carol's at May dreams gardens
Have a wonderful weekend and hoping we get some more rain. A special shout out to all local and regional gardeners!
