GBBD March 15

With all the construction at my place, there is not much to photographs. Here are a few pictures I took in the garden this morning.


My Rose bush had many blooms this morning


The new Plumbago I planted last week is doing well; this shade of blue is my favorite among tropical flower.

The first Purple Passion flower, the vine is growing fast and many more flowers are on the way.

Small two-color orchid, I am taking this one inside the house.

Tillandsia Ionantha, this is smallest bromeliad I have and in my opinion the most colorful, this time of the year, for a couple of weeks the color changes to a pinkish red and the small blue flowers come out,

The Spanish Needle weeds are gowning fast and the bees love it.

The White Angel’s Trumpet bloomed this week for the first time this year

I love your Tillandsia Ionantha in particular. They are so lovely. The rest of the flowers are beautiful, too!

Was that a Morden Sunrise in the first photo? It looked like one (but mine is still buried safely under snow and ice, lol.

All those lovely flowers. I bought my very first Tillandsia at the Seattle garden show last month. I am sure it won't be the last, as I am quite taken with these unusual plants.

Well that's quite a number of lovely blooms for "not much"! The Tillandsia Ionantha is very striking. I also love your rose.

Hi Blossom, thanks for stopping by and come back again

Jodi, I don’t know the name of my rose, this rose is yellowish when is opens and slowly turns pink, it has no thorns and it never gets black spots. It is the perfect rose.

Thanks MN, come back again

Keewee, I am also hook on Tillandsia plants and they are so easy to take care.
