Garden bloggers bloom day July

I thought I would show you a photo of my lady slipper orchid for Garden bloggers bloom day
It is a vine, and climbs the weeping tea tree just outside our bedroom window.  I was so excited to see this one flower, and then I looked behind it to discover 4 more buds forming behind it!  How aweosme to have the area dripping with orchids!
 These eucharist lillies are so nice to have in the shady areas of the garden.  Most flowers need sunshine, so they were a good choice for that area.
 These do better in the sun, the cordeline is a lovely hot pink.
 I am just loving this flower and am not sure if it is a jacobina - does anyone know?


thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for the chance to share the lovely blooms in our gardens - HERE
 is  a link to more of them!

  3. Hello Africanaussie, heart your lady slipper vine. But what can that be? It is beautiful!! Looks like a huge bloom of poinsettia but can it be Ruellia charteacea?

  4. Oh Stephanie, you are so clever - yes, although it does say it likes shade, and the one I have in the shade never flowers.

  9. Hello Gillian! Although I have no garden I read your blog posts and always admire all the wonderful blossoms and plants you show. Most of these beauties are so completely different from the flowers we have here in the Northern hemisphere.
