I've been so very slack in posting on either of my blogs this year, and the year is already half over!!! It's getting harder and harder for me to find the time to devote to blogging, so I think I'll just try and add a quick post on the weekends as a way of tracking what's on show in the various corners of my garden.
So ... what's on show this weekend?
Eucharis ... I think it's Eucharis amazonica because of the size of the blooms. The perfume however, is not all that strong. I posted a photo of this on my Facebook page, and one of the comments drew my attention immediately. Someone calls these 'tropical daffodils'. It suits, doesn't it?
'Bonanza' Petunia. I love the doubles!
It's Schlumbergera time here in the tropics. Obviously it's our wintertime and that's when our Schlums bloom. Our common name for them is Zygocactus.
My white Impatiens walleriana is looking fabulous right now.
There's some colour amongst the potted plants out in my courtyard garden.
In one of my new garden beds, the gorgeous Buttercup Yellow Gerbera shines.
Ixora and ...
... Crossandra look lovely at the moment.
It's also time for my Pelargoniums to shart putting on a show. Only two survived the humidity of our summer this year. I think the reason they survived was because our monsoonal wet season didn't arrive. I have great difficulty getting these plants through our wet seasons. As it was a no-show this year, I have two plants throwing out big flowerheads at the moment. One benefit of the wet season no-show I guess.
