I think I'll just post a few tropicals, since it is August.
Pride of Barbados and Esperanza
Curcuma (Hidden Ginger)
Crinum jagus, in bud. They open at night and stay open through the next day. Vanilla fragrance!
Bloom Day is hosted here: May Gardens. Go there to visit all the August Bloom Day Gardens and add yours to the list.
Datura, backed by Melampodium
Tropicals and subtropicals in glorious bloom I didn't post: Heliconia, Porterweed, Pentas, Cannas, Caladiums, Begonias, Shrimp Plant, Bulbine, Mandevilla, Madagascar periwinkle and Lantana. After two years of drought, we've had frequent rain this year. My new camera finally arrived.
Eager to post Bloom Day, I took pics late last evening. Today everything looks even better. If you came from May Dreams, you might want to go here: You Should Have Been Here Tomorrow to see the open Crinum buds and a better view of the Daturas.
