Hello and welcome to GBBD where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. We have been getting some rain  yet it is still not enough to fill our reservoirs. The grass has been on steroids and once a week cutting is necessary.  I celebrated my 60th birthday last Saturday 09th with a small group of friends.
To see more blooming gardens please go over to Carol at  May dreams gardens.  Wishing all a wonderful weekend!


  1. Belated Happy Birthday and thank you for sharing all the beauty that you have there in your lovely gardens. I love your patio too.

    Have a nice weekend ~ FlowerLady

  2. Lovely pictures - hope you have some frosted glass in that bathroom when you are in there (LOL). Is that really a Clivia. All my Clivias are red and your bloom looks a lot like a Crinum. I have a whole greenhouse bed of C. powellii and that is how they look. If it is a Clivia I'd love to know what variety.


  3. :) Happy belated Birthday :) I love your garden & the patio looks wonderful. thank you for sharing your pics-- I look forward to your blog & love thumbing thru your old ones-- Shannon
