The sun is back! So are some of the flowers that are in my garden :-)
I want to specially mention my little Balsams. They were started from seeds. The first batch of Balsams were more than 1 foot high and all red flowers. They reseeded and now the flowers come in more colours but they are much shorter. Here is a pink one...
A white Balsam...
Of course the original red Balsam...
And in the pic below you will be able to see how short they have became. The first batch of Balsams were taller than the Coleus. Now they are much shorter. Mini Balsams?
My Ixora and Plumbago are forever blooming and they really stand out in the sun.
In this pot, I have mixed two Plumbagos - white and blue. I took the pic below in the morning coz when the sun is shinning brightly, you will not be able to see the two colours.
These hydrangea blooms... they will be pink shortly and then turn green in the last stage.
Guzmania is looking radiant with its glossy maroon bracts. I love the fact that the bracts are very long lasting.
Here is a combo that I started with Ice Plant and Coleus cuttings, and two young Calliope Hybrid Geraniums (one is flowering).
I hope they will grow well together ;-)
Enjoy the sun everyone!
