Beautiful blooms, show casing them as a mosaic is a great idea. I will remember that for next month. Have a great day.

Hi, Jim. Great photos for this bloom day! Good luck on your plant sale this weekend. I'd consider driving up if it weren't for so many local sales and events this weekend. Always let me know, though, as I could be tempted at any time to shoot up for the afternoon! :)

So many absolutely gorgeous blooms! I wish I could come to your plant sale, but it's a bit far for me. I'm especially envious of your purple firespike bloom. Mine hasn't flowered for the last two years. It sets its buds in Dec. and then Jan. freezes it to the ground. It comes back, but alas, no blooms.

Beautiful Broms. My Billbergia Windii is just beginning to flower now. I just have a few so far. I need more room!

No shortage of bloom!! Excellent! Larry

Your garden must be looking a picture right now ... so many lovely flowers.

See why you like the blossoms of that Quesnelia liboniana - gonna have to add that to my "gotta get" list.

What a tremendous number of blooms for April! I can't believe your variety of bromeliads. Do you know where in CenFla I could find such variety in a nursery?

Melody said...

So many blooms to enjoy - you must be thrilled! Great way to showcase them too.
