Time To Flaunt Some Flowers

Let's see what's blooming around our mid-Winter garden right now.

There's a bit of purple!
 Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender'

Gomphrena globosa 'Purple Buddy'

Petunia ... unknown variety.

dwarf Angelonia angustifolia

There's a smattering of pink.

 Azaleas.

Antirrhinum 'Strawberry Crush'.

Wonder of wonders ... there are just a few flowers on my poor damaged Tabebuia impetiginosa.  They are a welcome and unexpected sight.
 
There's a flash of yellow.

Viola 'Petite Citrus'

Gazania

There's also some wonderful shades of plum and burgundy.
The first buds on my Salvia splendens 'Dusky Hues'.

Spathoglottis

Look!  Isn't this wonderful?  Peeping out from my neighbour's white Bauhina ...
... the very first blooms on their tree, and I get to enjoy them too as the tree hangs over my fence.

  1. hi Bernieh, the flowers are all great, but i am biased to the pansies. Whatever color they are, as long as they are pansies, i love them. We almost have the same conditions, so do you think they will flower here at humid and hot 29-36C?

  2. Good Morning from a sunny UK! I can hear the joy behind your words today at seeing some of those wonderful flowers especially the Bauhina and Tabebuia. It's great to see them back even if it's over the garden fence.
    Have a great weekend.

  3. Your winter is a real treat. I loved all these sweet photos, but the gomphrena positively looks like balls of grape candy on a stick. I am trying to grow gomphrena 'Fireworks', a nice red one, but I have no blooms... the bunnies think it is candy for them.

  5. Bernie,

    Your flowers are lovely. I have never seen that ruffled petunia and dwarf angelonia is not a variety I have seen offered.

    I can't wait to grow the pansies and violas again when we cool off.

  11. Hi Bernie. Your Azaleas are so pretty. I love all the shades of pink in one bloom. I think your Plectranthus is the prettiest plant. The two birds are so cute. What a cute picture.
