Cool Week

Monday, October 22, 2018

When you look at the bloom below, what comes to mind? A torch? A flaming torch to be exact! This bromeliad aptly named is slow to flower and when it flowers, the bloom ages fast.

The cooling weather due to overcast sky and non-stop rainfalls did not really slow down the ageing process of the bloom a lot. 



This little rose sent out small little roses and I am amazed by the number - so many roses on one branch. How sweet, look at picture below. Earlier, I have propagated another pot. Settled it the opposite side of my garden. It is now flowering as well. 



Oh, I can't stop admiring my Busy Lizzy. Both the flowers and leaves grew more and more by the day. I really like how the deep pink flowers look so extra-ordinary against the medium green leaves.



Took in the Parlour Palm inside to convert stale air to good. Suits my decor well, yes 



Have a great day!

    1. Hey Jade, glad you noticed the parlour palm there. The palm has been by my side while I write for awhile already. I would gaze at the short fronds whenever my eyes are tired.

    1. This bromeliad is easy to care for but the bloom last for a short while only due to our hot weather. One plus point is that its bright green leaves stay green and bright whole year round.
