It's always terrific to pop in and see what's blooming in your garden on Bloom Day. Your Aechmea comata bloom is a beauty and I love your white Barleria.

Great way to share several blooms! Beautiful flowers and photos, thanks for sharing :)

Thank you Jim. I can barely have these beauties in my bathroom, let alone my garden. Jealousy is not pretty!

I think you have the coolest plants ever. By the way, I recently bought a dendrobium parishii and its flowers are giving my balcony this heavenly sweet aroma right now. Thanks for the help on the Quesmea bromeliad ID by the way! Let me know if you want a pup after they form.
