Eeek! I have been home now for nearly three weeks after three months away. Apart from a very wet Saturday last weekend, it barely rained the whole time. The garden is a disaster, and it's Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!
Thanks heavens, it's that time of year a couple of show ponies make their annual appearance, and they seem to be have thrived on neglect.
|I love this red and pink epiphyllum. It's in a hanging basket at the side of the carport. I forget about it most of the year, until I notice the first buds and then count the days waiting for the display.|
|Still just a bud in last Saturday's rain.|
|The oncidium orchids 'Dancing Lady' just inside my front gate are at their peak.|
|On a whole different scale is this tiny tick orchid Dockrillia linguiformis happily growing on the trunk of my poinciana.|
|I brought this Zygopetalum inside to enjoy the flowers|
|In the front garden, the day lilies were doing it tough, but there were still a few flowers. This is 'Finish with a Flourish'.|
|I'm not too sure what this is, probably either 'Isis Unveiled' or 'Mildred Mitchell'.|
|The always reliable 'Velvet Rose'|
|In the rain on Saturday, a not-so-well-camouflaged spider on my spiral ginger.|
|I think he may have come from the nearby gardenia.|
|Hope he settles in to his new home.|
