Garden Blogger's Bloomday September 2016



My epiphyllum oxypetalum aka night blooming cereus bloomed a few nights ago and it had eighteen flowers opening  the same time. The perfume was tantalizing.
My dragon fruit cactus vine grown from seed by a friend. She had it in a pot where it had remained stunted for months. I gladly accepted and repotted it. Within a month it grew rapidly and sent out some side shoots. It is now clambering up this trellis looking for somewhere to root.






My first dragon fruit from this vine. I am not sure if it is self pollinating  but there were no other flowers on the vine.

Dombeya aka tropical hydrangea in bloom.

 Hello and welcome to GBBD where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. It is very hot and humid here in the tropics. Those of you in the north are getting ready for your fall weather with your colourful trees and cooler weather. Rainfall is still not enough for my island home where some residents are experiencing severe water shortages. We still have a few more months to go hoping that more rain will come.
To see more blooming gardens please go over to Carol's at May dreams garden 
Wishing everyone a great weekend and happy gardening.

Hello and welcome to GBBD where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. We have been getting some rain  yet it is still not enough to fill our reservoirs. The grass has been on steroids and once a week cutting is necessary.  I celebrated my 60th birthday last Saturday 09th with a small group of friends.
To see more blooming gardens please go over to Carol at  May dreams gardens.  Wishing all a wonderful weekend!
