Its been awhile since I’ve done a garden tour for garden bloom day. Maybe, its because of all the new garden projects happening at the same time. I’m currently re-working and creating new areas in the front, side, and back garden, oh and yes even the ‘ jungle area ‘.
Needless to say, I’m not ready to show you the mess being created outside of the work I’ve been doing on the side garden if anyone has followed the progress for that inspiration.
It’s a little too much trying to work on all these areas by myself. But initially when I get in the mood, I have to tap into this energy immediately or else it gets diverted to many other outside interests. That can easily occur in Hawaii when there are so many distractions to do other things than spending time weeding and mowing the lawn.

Let me show you some of the more presentable parts of the garden and flowers in bloom this March in Orchidland.
A small Rock berm in the front yard with tilsandia, bromeliads, crotons, strobilanthes and dracaenas.
The front garden has been getting a major re-do, below are the areas being reworked.
A front yard view from the house with new berms and variegated pandanus and ohia trees in the background.
Bedding plants along the front walk way to the house and flowers in the next few pictures.
Geraniums, ti, crotons, vireya, dracaena, ferns, and various impatiens line the front beds.
One of my favorite hibiscus blooms, its so large its drooping, say hello to hibiscus ‘Mountain Air’
I’m starting to like the hot pinks and purples in the front garden against my yellow house.
Anthuriums are always blooming and I never have to do anything to them.
The Back yard is getting a major re-do but I’ll just show you a small area on the right side that is somewhat presentable. Last year, it was basically jungle and is being brought back into view able range from the house.
The larger hibiscus to the right of the mosaic has these beautiful candy cane-like flowers below.
A good portion of the back, back area and the jungle are filled with these pretty pink ground covers, but beware, they can really climb up a shrub or tree and cover them completely in no time!
Well that’s a small look at the new things happening on my garden, thanks for coming to visit and hope you enjoyed the tour.
