Kimberly said...

Holy cow, Jim! What a variety!! Honestly, I'm impressed with your bloom day showing. VERY nice!

Rosey said...

That is fantastic! You have TONS of blooms. I think I may have posted 5. I need to move.

NanaK said...

All I can say is, "Wow!" All those abundant blooms along with your bromeliads and you always have such great harvests too. I especially enjoyed seeing all those broms.

Katie said...

I can SMELL the plumeria from here! Thank you for sharing!

It was cool to see how many different kids of each plant you have!

Priscilla said...

Beautiful blooms! I love Orchids and Plumerias. Wish I have the kind of climate where I can grow tropical flowers but I live in the mountains. Perhaps I can do containers indoors. Where do you get your Plumerias? It's one of my favorite flowers. It also reminds me of Hawai'i where I recently got married!

I miss my jacobinia (too cold at our new place). Yours look so lush and vibrant. Do the hummingbirds love them?

zentmrs said...

Wow! You look like you are growing an entire nursery! Just beautiful!!

You have a lot of flowers! Do you make beautiful arrangements to put in your house too or just leave them be in all their beauty outside?

Jami@ An Oregon Cottage said...

What fun to see all your flowers since they are ones I can't see where I am (well, maybe a few- especially plumbago). Some of these are so beautiful- are any adaptable to being grown indoors, I wonder?

Thanks for linking to the Tuesday Garden Party (and first one to boot!).

Melinda said...

So beautiful! Not only can you grow them - you can photograph them as well! :)

Sylvana said...

You always have such an array of interesting things blooming in your garden. It must seem like paradise.

Wendy said...

absolutely gorgeous blooms! I love that plumeria. I bought some stick looking things at a flower show and they were just starting to grow leaves when a storm snapped the tip off. Now I'm back to the drawing board. DOn't know when I'll get to see those gorgeous plumeria flowers.

Gosh – I’m amazed. You are fortunate enough to live in a warm climate. I do love Bromeliads and have around 50 different types here at the Exotic Garden on the east coast of England. Why not have a look: www.exoticgarden.com here you will also find my Exotic Garden blog. Keep up the good work.
