"Everything is blooming most recklessly;
if it were voices instead of colors,
there would be an unbelievable shrieking
into the heart of the night"
Rainer Maria Rilke
This "winter" of ours, - our dry season - is quite my favorite time of the year, and I think pretty colorful.
Impatients pops its head up night now, and I spread the love by breaking off branches, dipping them into hormone powder and stick them straight into the ground.
I also found this plant at the local market called balsam - similar to impatients.
And this white orchid is sending out new buds - the last time it flowered just a couple of months ago something ate each of the little flowers one night! Holding thumbs.
I love lots and lots of flowers in the garden, and will keep aiming for some shrieking reckless blooming. How about you?
I am joining in Garden bloggers Bloom day May 15th check there for even more lovely blooms.
