Pleasant SurprisesWednesday, August 11, 2010
After the rainy days, one inflorescence grew from a caladium that's in a planter box together with a Mexican sunflower...
These 'dancing ladies' brought some joy back to this nook of my garden. The earlier spike of flowers that grew out was broken due to the heavy raindrops. Then later the sun dried up the spike :-(
But now I am seeing two other new flower spikes growing out from this little orchid!
The bloom of this dianthus lasted for a number of days. This little plant started from a stem cutting ;-)
It is always wonderful to see plants re-blooming. This red gerbera daisy is one of them. Although the size shrunk, the flower looks as cheery as before and lasting.
Cactus Zinnia meanwhile is still blooming but this flower has less petals than the earlier one.
My Little Bird plant has grown to about three feet high now. The bracts have never stopped producing 'birds'!
My red and white Gloxinia has been flowering for 4 months already...
These are the recent surprises from my existing plants. I hope yours are flourishing well also. Have fun gardening!
