Hello and welcome to GBBD where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens.  It has been horribly hot the past week and that was due to a tropical wave in the area. It has passed us with very little rain. 

OnThursday I had a group visit from retirees from the UWI  who were touring the island. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
 To see more blooming gardens please go over to Carol the brainchild of GBBD at may dreams gardens. Have a great weekend gardening!
