We've had heat and rain all week and that means....flowers!
This is the Curcumin.
The flowers are large and deep-oh, so intricate!
I have about 12' of Caladium that has really grown over the few years. They bring color from Spring to first frost.
This flower is in a large pot-
it is also a Curcumin which is in the Crinum family.
The edge of the pot is dwarf wave petunias. I love the contrast of shape and size but Bill says it is too messy in the pool area--it does drop little blooms and leaves quite regularly.
These are the tiger lilies from NY.
All of the flowers so far are from bulbs and that is why they are all in pots so the bulbs can't be desiccated in the sand
and also for protection from voles and squirrels!
My bowl of succulents is doing well and it even produced a tall stalk! I can't wait to see what develops.
The buddha plant (Jatropha Podagrica) has been blooming for months but this time the flowers have produced these seed pods!
This is what the blooms look like so several of the flowers must've gotten pollinated even in the pool patio!
