Cutieful Bloomings

Sunday, May 29, 2011

Last two weeks, I was enjoying the sight of some tiny blooms that appeared in my garden. This Verbena started flowering two weeks ago. The little blooms are so delightful and it is the brightest little gift that I have ever received... thanks to a special friend ;-)

I spotted a tiny fruit from my little Acerola bush. This cute little fruit took more than a week to develop (grow in size) but it only took about a day for it to turn totally red. The fruit dropped after a heavy rain.

The fruit tasted a little sour. I am glad the bird did not get to it first!

I was happy to notice this bunch of Angel Wing Begonia flowers while watering a pot of plant that was placed on the floor. These flowers were growing below the leaves. To get a full glimpse of the flowers, I have to look at them from below...

This was the smallest flower of the week! My Cryptanthus gave me a surprise with its tiny white blooms. I didn't expect to see them as the plant wasn't showing any sign that it will flower earlier. These white flowers just appeared out of a sudden.

My Copper Leaf Plant meanwhile has not been growing healthily for so long. I am happy that the plant is finally flowering.

Persian Violet... I love its cute flowers and glossy foliages. The mildly scented flowers are quite remarkable eventhough the size is small.

This is another happy find... Ice Plant. Its variegated leaves are as attractive as the red flowers :-D

My Clematis grew again and now flowering after I had pruned the plant about a month ago. The old vines did flower but attracted some pest, which was why I pruned the plant earlier. But does Clematis bloom on new vines only?

Lastly, here is a pink Dahlia plant in full bloom. It's a new plant in my garden! I brought home this plant while waiting for my dwarf Dahlia to re-flower.

Happy growing flowers of all sizes!
