GBBD for October 2008

Another GBBD at the DragonFly garden. The garden is looking green and wet due to the tremendous amount of rain we had this past month. The few flowers that survived the rain are a little droopy.

This month I am starting with the ever-faithful canna lily, which this year is blooming into fall months.

This ground orchid in the new kid in the garden. I purchased these two plants a couple of weeks ago, and are now part of my front garden.

The devil’s trumpet. Notice that it points up instead of down, unlike their close relative the angel’s trumpet.

Red crown of thorns, are a year round favorite.

The white and orange bougainvilleas are blooming again for a second time this year.

I found this small white orchid blooming in my re-hab orchid corner.

The last of the torenias are blooming this week, they will re-seed and be all over the garden next year again.
