Blooms for Easter

jandey1(TX8)April 8, 2012

No, no plumeria blooms yet, but a few others have graced the garden for me.

Floribunda (can't remember the name):

Bletilla, or ground orchid:

Can you find all the plumies?

It's not spring in Texas without the Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush.

Happy Easter, everyone.

Wow, what beauty. Thanks for sharing, brightened my day looking at those beautiful photos. Clearly you both have more than a passion for flowers, but photography as well. Fantastic photos.

Peg, that flower is stunning! What is it? I see you caught some Wild Kingdom death match on one of the petals, too.

Wendy, thanks! I do love me some flowers, and I still get so excited when people post their photos here. Always a nice way to start the day!

Thanks Jen, It is a clematis. I liked that one so much I just planted 3 more vines this spring. I never saw the bug until after I looked at the pics. Love your garden and that sea of Bluebonnets is outstanding. Everything looks so healthy. Hope everyone had a good Easter. Peg

Peg, is that a purple fountain clematis? I have 3 of them, but they are not blooming yet. Barbra

Hi Barbra, I bought it as Crystal Fountain Clematis but it might also be known as purple fountain. The flowers are just starting to open and in a few more days I should have about 6 more blooms. The vine got cut in Feb. as it was in a pot and I moved it into the ground. I had to cut it off the fence so I could drop it down out of the pot. I know you are suppose to cut it back but this is the first time I've cut it in 4 years. I think the warm winter has it blooming a couple of weeks earlier this year. Here's more bloom opening. Peg
