Dahlias..........until we meet again

Its time to bid goodbye to the Dahlias and these are the last blooms of this season.

Isnt this one just beautiful?

Nature's color combinations are perfect aren't they?
It seems so long before I'll get to see them again...

Summer color in the garden

The Portulacas have begun to bloom and are spreading fast.
The seedlings below, in the beginning of April.
Love the bright colors!

They have self seeded in the ipomea pots. I am looking forward to seeing that interesting mix once they bloom.

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day April 2011

This is the first time I am participating in GBBD hosted by Carol over at May Dreams Gardens. Here are a few pictures from my home and garden. They are taken with my phone so I'm afraid the quality is not great.
The Amaryllis bulbs are blooming their heads off in the garden. I am so glad that the Amaryllis has decided to put on a great show this year. Last year I was very dissapointed as very few of the bulbs had flowerd. Here they are lining the garden wall.
In a planter adjoining the balcony. (There are many more pics in the Amaryllis post below).
Oriental Lilies...
Pansies, Amaryllis and Carnations on the balcony..
A closeup of the Pansies..lover their speckled faces!
Ruellias in the garden..
A Ladybug on the Ruellia bush...
The Bougainvilleas on the terrace...
Sadly, this seems to be the end of the Dahlias for this season..
But I see promises of things to come...The Asiatic Lilies should be blooming soon.
The Petunias that have self seeded in the Lily pots. I don't have the heart to pull them out.
Even the Lily leaves are so pretty..
Thank you Carol for GBBD!

Amaryllis everywhere in my garden!

I love Lilies and this year I have been very lucky! Most of my Amaryllis pots are putting forth a beautiful show of blooms unlike last year when very few of the Amaryllis bulbs had flowered. After last years poor show I had just left the bulbs in their pots and done absolutely nothing. Despite that most of the bulbs have flowered and the blooms are bigger than ever before! I am so happy and proudly display them all over my house!
My balcony where I love to sip my morning cup of tea.

On the wall lining my garden.
As I never label my pots some blooms bring special joy-I didnt remember having this one below. Maybe its the first time this bulb flowered.

And the show goes on!
Another corner of my garden...
And the floral display in my planter outside which I love to change as often as I can!
