A Week in Flowers – Day Two

I am joining Cathy at Words and Herbs for the second edition of AWIF, posting photos of floral abundance. Today, Bromeliad madness from my garden to spread some tropical warmth.

This is a Hallelujah Billbergia Bromeliad, perhaps the maddest of them all. Purple, green and white spotted foliage with red, white and blue flowers.

Another Billbergia of unknown name with a much calmer flower.

Little Harv Aechmea, a close up.

Little Harv in the garden. Little Harv is not so little and is another armored Brom. He was moved away from the walkway as I kept getting stabbed in the calf.

Last, but not least, one of my favorites, with six foot tall flowers, no less. – Aechmea blanchetiana.

Thanks to Cathy at http://www.wordsandherbs.wordpress.com for hosting. Follow the link to see more flowery pictures.

Happy Gardening or garden viewing…

    I love them all, and the names too! The first one really does evoke a warm feeling with the fiery base and little purple sparks. The flowers remind me of crocuses!

    Simply superb. How did Little Harv get his name?!!! He’s clearly a force to be reckoned with. The first bromeliad – Hallelujah – is so well named!

    I wish I had half the success with bromeliads as you do, Amelia. Very few of mine have ever flowered.

  5. Wonderful close-ups! I wonder why I’ve never grown Bromeliads…oh right, snow!
