Colours of the MonthThursday, March 08, 2012
The best thing that has happened in my garden recently is when the Neoregelia that I planted a year ago is now flowering :-D
First, the centre turned pinkish red before the flowers inside the cup flowered. I initially thought that its flowering cycle would be short and quick as the plant multiplies fast. But now I realise that it does need a long time for a young pup to flower.
The Lemon Ginger is now producing flowers quite regularly but they are taking turns to show up (one after another).
The precious Iresines in my garden are growing and growing! I am so happy to see their attractive texture and colour. So now I grow them at several spots to add lots of interest to the surroundings.
I spotted a seed on my Four O'Clock flower plant. It looks like a big black pepper, hehe...
I wonder why my Aster is only flowering a bunch of blooms at a time. I hope to see lots of flowers covering the plant one day though. Could it be the rain?
The Spider Tresses are back! Love to see the flowers coming back again and again. It is a pleasurable plant to grow. It has a charm of its own ;-)
My dear Gloxinia's returning blooms are gorgeous! (Lona, this is the same Gloxinia blossoming again!) Since it rains often nowadays, the cooler temperature has enable the blooms to hang on to the plant really long. I hope all the buds can be fully opened at the same time before the sun comes back to 'melt' the flower.
My Siam Tulip is an amazement to me. The bright pink bracts are so attractive! Also its lovely dainty flowers at the bottom. Same as the Gloxinia, this spike of flower lasted longer than usual. It has been blossoming bracts and flowers for weeks now!
My Aloe Vera sends out another spike of flowers. This one is much prettier the last one ;-)
These dwarf Azaleas have flowers that have been making my porch really pretty. Yay!
