More blooms open!
We all know around here that the more plumies we get, the better chance we have for flowers :)
It's been very warm (90's) but cloudy here, so my plumies have some fantastic color this week.
Here's the very photogenic Gladys O'Neal again:
I just can't stop taking her picture!
And she's just a little plant, too:
Then there's the glorious color on Heirloom:
Check out the cool maroon buds:
And in some sunlight, with a 6-petalled flower, too:
Aussie Confetti is throwing much smaller blooms now, but they still smell like fruity heaven:
Here's the long-awaited Leona Hoke, who smells like Dr. Pepper or Cherry Coke:
Not too shabby!
The blooms fall off quickly but few flowers have that intense color.
And here's my most photogenic, bloom, Thornton's Lemon Drop:
I have been waiting a long time for these lovelies to open:
The pink isn't as violetish as the photo shows, but warmer.
As a bonus she also smells incredible when open, like tropical fruit:
