Out in the garden blooms are a bit hard to find at the moment, especially in the courtyard and shadehouse gardens.
One lovely Orchid has bloomed out in the shadehouse, but I'm still on the hunt for an I.D. I think it may be
Brassocattleya (Bc.) Maikai 'Louise', which is a Brassavola (B.) nodosa X Cattleya (C.) bowringiana hybrid. The jury is still out on this one though.
Most of the blooms can be found in the outdoor garden beds at this time of the year. In the tiered garden beds in front of the shadehouse,
the Iris domestica,
the Hemerocallis 'Rue Madelaine',
the Mussaenda 'Calcutta Sunset',
In the front-of-house garden bed,
there's a Mussaenda philippica 'Bangkok Rose' and Russelia making a nice colour combination.
In the driveway rock garden areas,
the Turnera ulmifolia
and Turnera subulata are on show.
So is the Thunbergia erecta 'Tru Blu'
and the pretty Polygala.
I'm joining Tootsie for Fertilizer Friday / Flaunt Your Flowers
