Garden Blogger's Bloom Day January 2017

Queen of Siam waterlily
mixed blue
Blue capensis with six flowers
Mona lavender ( plectrantus) I am nuturing.
Cypress vine (ipomea quamoclit) that came as a weed with a plant I bought. This can be seen growing wild along country roads here on the island and blooms around this time of year.
Red kalanchoe now in bloom.

Mamey sapote (pouteria sapota) doing well after the heavy rains we've had. This one was planted approximately 4-5 years ago. This is a popular fruit in many of the islands especially Cuba and Florida.
Chocolate pudding tree (diospyros nigra) doing nicely. Not very well known on the island.
Longan (dimocarpus longan) a popular fruit related to the lychee. It is grown by many rare fruit enthusiasts in South Florida and very common in Asia. This was planted around 4-5 years ago. It took a while to become established and am hoping to see some fruit soon.

Hello and welcome to garden blogger's bloom day where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. Many gardens up north are under snow unless you live in Florida. The UK has been hit with some heavy snowstorms and am sending warm wishes hoping that there is very little damage.  To see more blooming gardens please go on over to Carol's garden at May dreams garden
Have a great week folks! 


  1. It makes me warm just seeing these tropical flowers. Happy GBBD.

  2. Beautiful views of your garden!
    Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  3. So nice to see flowers blooming outdoors. Lovely water lilies. Alana

  4. Lovely to see all of your flowering plants and fruit trees. I love the blue water lilies. I am afraid I wouldn't be able to contribute to garden bloggers' bloom day this month as there is nothing flowering in my garden just now!

  5. Thanks for sharing the delights in your garden now. In snowbound UK it makes us mad with jealosy (LOL). Actually the snow has been somewhat random. Scotland yes. East coast of England yes and certain high spots in the middle of the country. But some of us got off very lightly and are now basking in "tropical" temperatures (well they feel tropical at 12c - 14c in mid-January).
