My Garden FringiesTuesday, May 01, 2012
It was really delightful to see these deep pink fringe flowers beaming on the bush and looking radiant ;-) The plant really stole the show and my neighbour kept asking me where did that red plant come from and what's this plant...
Oh well, the plant was here all the time! This week, sadly, most of the flowers you see here had dropped to the ground after the blazing hot sun came back. But good thing its deep plum leaves started to appear more and more.
Meanwhile, my Hoya publicalyx is still blossoming and have three bunches of flowers (one hiding behind) all at the same time on its vines...
Here is the fifth and last flower of the stalk of blooms from my Hippeastrum Mrs Somebody. Its size is just a little smaller than the earlier four that blossomed earlier :-D
And this Gloxinia is really something. I left the pot in one corner and did not bother to water it as I thought the plant has died. One day (after many days) I saw little leaves appearing and to my surprise, the plant was re-growing and now, as you can see, it is blossoming!
I am also happy to see a bloom of my Four O'clock Flower. It just gave me a surprise in the afternoon as I was walking out to check my post box.
Enjoy all the wonderful plants and blooms in your garden and have a great week to you all my fellow gardening friends!
