Here's my parade of flowers for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day 2011. The pictures are taken from 16 Aug - 13 Sep 2011. The first in line is Desert Rose, double flowers cultivar 'Santa Claus'.
“Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - GBBD Sept 2011”, a copyrighted post, was written for My Nice Garden blog by Autumn Belle @ http://www.mynicegarden.com/ on Sept 13th 2011.
Its other common names are Grass Orchid, Bamboo Orchid or Tapah Weed.
I can't believe I can grow roses in my garden!
A rose 'sifu' (teacher) at Floria 2011 told me that anyone can grow roses in our hot climate,
just don't be lazy as roses need regular fertilizing, watering and pruning.
Well, flowers need their beauty regime too,
just like we need to "cleanse, tone and moisturise" our face everyday.
This red rose of mine started to open its bud on the 8th and it is still as blooming beautifully today, after 6 days! However, the scent is not as strong as the pink rose above.
As usual, this guy is up to no good - the parents mated on my bunga raya hibiscus flower at the side yard, the little ones are found among my costuses in the front yard.
Guess who did this?
Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is hosted by Carol at May Dreams Garden on the 15th of every month. To participate and/or to view what is blooming in gardens around the world, please visit the link here.
