Time for six pictures of what going on in my garden. I am joining in with gardeners from around the world on The Propagators blog, follow this link to see more posts THELINK
The Hallelujah Billbergia Bromeliad has finally bloomed. Flowers and foliage don’t get much crazier than this one:
Here is another Bromeliad flower, I think of these as the tropical version of tulips. Meet Quesnelia testudo, this one has very sharp foliage and one of the hardiest of the Bromeliads, surviving 25 degrees (F).
Another Bromeliad, an unnamed Guzmania in full flower.
The seedling of a Strangler Fig (Ficus aurea) growing in my Tiki. I need to take this out soon.
A bud of yet another Bromeliad, ‘Little Harv’ Aechmea. These are yellow and pink when in full flower.
My Leonitis flower, I am very pleased about this one I started it from seed last year and it has straight stocky stems. The plants from last year were curved and languished on the ground when flowering.
That’s my six this very windy day. The wind has been howling since yesterday morning. It is a north wind so gusty it blew the Papayas off the tree and the cushions off the chairs on the screen porch. No gardening today for me.
