Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

To my delight there were lots of beauties to be found in the garden this week, even though I seem to have forgotten about the garden lately. I've been playing in my clay room making lots of new stuff for the upcoming garden shows.

Hibiscus

Begonia

Milkweed, Salvia leucantha and my dog Piper

Jatropha integerrima

Clerodendrom thomsoniae "Bleeding Heart" and Duranta Leaves

Salvia "Jeans purple passion"

Clerodendrum splendens "Glorybower"

Asclepias "Milkweed" and a Monarch caterpillar which I am always happy to see in the garden.

I think some of these may make my wish list, especially the white begonia and the Clerodendrum splendens "Glorybower". I also need to get some of the milkweed - the monarchs yesterday were all over it at the nursery.

Hi Karrita, such a splendid collection of flowers. Your garden must be a delight now while so many of us are experiencing cold and snow. I would like to add that your garden goddess plaque is so beautiful. I really like the last one shown, kind of celtic! :-)

It does seem odd that while most of the gardens in the country are at rest... the tropics are coming alive.
Thanks for visiting today and for sharing your thoughts on the goddess.

You are so lucky to have such a beautiful garden with lots of blooms all year long! I am glad though that you liked my pics of the leaves!

Hi Zach~
It is a delight to have blooms all year long...although I imagine the anticipation of Spring and the coming gardening season is a delight for you.

Have a nice weekend, Petra
