Blooms this Friday

Here are a few flowers blooming if my front garden.

The powderpuff tree is in full bloom; the best time for pictures is early in the morning when the sun is coming up. The flowers open during the night and by late afternoon they are gone.

Plumeria or the bride’s bouquet is beginning to bloom. This is a new location for this plant, will see how it likes it.

My ground orchids have become year around flowers in the garden. Planting them in the front of the house has been the best decision I made, they like the full sun all day long.

Thryalliss, I like this plant, I have several around the garden they are easy to take care, a favorite of pollinators and always showing flowers.

Lantana, I don’t know why my yellow lantanas do well, while the other colors are quite a challenge.

Finally this bromeliad (Aechmea fasciata) fancy name don’t you think?

Hi Rusty.....I do love your blooms, so different to what you might find in a garden in the UK....
