White ProsperityTuesday, September 27, 2011
Last week, the first Gladiolus flower spike that grew over 5 feet tall opened. The long flower spike of Gladiolus 'White Prosperity' began blossoming at the bottom before the remaining flowers took turn to open... one to three blooms at a time.
However, I have to stake the flower spike as it tipped over after five blooms have opened.
The other plant that has white showy flowers blooming at the same time is my Azalea. The flower looks like a corsage on the little dark green bush.
My Double Pearl Tuberosa flower stalk has unfortunately bent down due to the heavy rain. I cut and placed the stalk of flower into a little vase in my kitchen. The flowers release a wonderful scent. I think they smell like Gardenia.
Meanwhile, my Oxalis gave me a litte surprise. The plant bears more flowers than leaves!
And my Hydrangea flourished 'stray' flowers from its stem. This is the first time I see this happening to this plant. Btw the tip of this same stem has flower buds opening as well.
Returning blooms are always a delight. My Spider Tresses flowers are back to add some exotic appeal to the garden :-D
While the leaves of this Geranium have a pungent smell, its flowers have no scent. I have 'killed' two Geraniums before this one. Keeping my fingers crossed this time round!
I am always pleased to report about my Coleuses. They are doing pretty well. Anyway they are actually really easy to grow here, so nothing to be proud of I guess, haha...
Just wanted to find ways to grow each one better :-)
And I have some Cockscomb and Eggplant seedlings growing for some time. The Cockscomb seedlings have been growing rather slowly though...
Eggplant seedlings show faster growth. Anyway, I hope to transplant them soon :-D
Have a great gardening day!
