I was watching the yeast bloom while making Foccacia this morning (it is currently rising) when it occured to me I have a lot of different blooms. Here are some from the garden.
The buds from last week have opened with the warmer weather. This is a Quesnelia testudo Bromeliad.
Little Harv Aechmea Bromeliad opened as well. This flower gets longer and more yellow as it ages.
The Red Guzmania flowers age to bronze and then form really strange seedheads. I like the bronze and leave them on the plant.
Shell Ginger (Alpinia zerumbet) usually flower in February and a few more times during the year.
The Tropical Hydrangea (Dombeya wallachii) flowers are ending their show. Time for me to figure out how to prune the thing…
That my six different blooms for this Saturday. To see more, and different, blooms follow the link to http://www.thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com.
Happy Gardening…and Valentine’s Day.
