Its Bloom day again in May and my garden is happy with all the rains we have been getting this May.
The back yard is finally looking good again especially with the back border and new central island. The back side garden is filled with blooming hibiscus, nasturtiums, impatiens and gardenias.
I just started a batch of nasturtiums and they shot up from the ground very quickly and blooming various yellows, reds and orange blooms.
Tropical Amaranthus Spinosus is really giving us a show this morning.
Here's the central bed again, finally planted in the back yard. Even though there’s no flowers in this bed, its quite colorful with bright bromeliads, succulents and other tropical plants.
At the back side of the central bed are some interesting bromeliads and tillandsias, this one below is a dark maroon with a red inflorescence just starting to branch out.
The side area with the lion has a variety of mini neoregalias, tillandsias and aechmeas, beautiful lighting in the morning, makes them glow in surreal colors.
The front garden is giving a beautiful floral show this today. I love fuchsias and this red/white variety in the vegetable is profuse with blooms.
A tillandsia with a beautiful red/purple inflorescence and purple flower.
Combination plantings with impatiens, croton, geraniums and dracaena.
Facing the home is an island berm with just about to bloom Medinilla Magnifica and Aechmea Blanchetiana.
I love this small bed with black taro, impatiens, crotons, begonias and a huge medinilla about to start blooming.
An orchid cattleya blooming on my lanai.
The side garden is also coming alive with blooms, my banana transplant is already sending out a beautiful blossom.
My red torch ginger is sending out its first bloom in the side garden.
Even the pitcher pants are happy in the side garden with all the rain they have been getting lately.
Lots of anthuriums to greet me this morning in the side shade garden, this one is magicially front lit.
Is this an amazing color on this thin leaved bromeliad?
Another bromeliad all aglow in the late afternoon light with double impatiens blooms.
I really am enjoying spending more time in my garden and starting some big projects. But its also nice to just enjoy time spent outdoors and taking some wonderful shots to document this month’s progress. Hope you enjoyed the tour of my gardens with me this morning.
