Garden Pix

Here are some pictures from my garden:

This is the yesterday-today-and-tomorrow,
whose real name is brunsfelsia pauciflora

Every Christmas I buy one or two amaryllis bulbs and then after they are done blooming, I plant them outside in a pot with others. Some of these came to me from DH's grandmother.

On the last picture: I don't know what this is, but I think it should get the Weird Plant Award!

Your last flower shown is a Bromeliad and I think from memory it is'Niger' but I may be wrong on that. I can find out should you wish.

Oh how beautiful your flowers are! Is the Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) really in the soil in your garden? We use them here in the Netherlands in floral arrangements a lot, plus they sell the bulbs. I never knew they could go into a garden. It's a delight to see your flower pictures.

I am soooo jealous. I live in the desert and have trouble keeping the rabbits from eating up my oleanders which I got because I thought being poisonous they'd survive drought and rabbits. We have both; some of my oleanders are blooming. I enjoy my daughters flowers when I visit CA.
