Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day-September, 2012

It's Garden Blogger's Bloom Day! That means we get to see what's blooming in everyone's garden! As always, Carol at May Dreams Gardens is our lovely host, so please stop by to see what else is blooming around the world. Here's what's going on in my world:

This mystery orchid is in flull-bloom right now along with three other stalks of the same variety. It's no wonder given the awesome job I did repotting them a while back. 

Ha! Apparently this is the key to successful orchids.

My golden shrimp plant, Pachystachys lutea, fondly referred to as Bob Fosse, is putting on a good show, jazz hands and all.

Mocha creeps around, doing a full inspection of the inner-workings of my blue plumbago every day. I'm still waiting for a full report of what, exactly, goes on in there.

Although I didn't buy it for its flowers, my coleus is putting them out anyway. I quite like the color, so bonus!

Believe it or not, there is a rose growing in this pot, but right now, the sweet alyssum are the ones in bloom.
This red ginger is about half-way open. I think I like this stage best.

Okay, not exactly a bloom, but I did notice something new emerging from this pot the other night as I walked by. 

I think I'll call him Flower, if I want to.

That orchid is beautiful, and so is the coleus! I've never seen a coleus flower before. They're just kept as house plants here in chilly old England.

Love the frog in the pot. :)

Red Ginger! Yes, we saw lots of that when we were in Hawaii but I didn't realize what it was. So beautiful.

Trish-Yes, these are all over Hawaii! I'm not sure if this is the same ginger as they use for ginger root, but when you cut the leaves, they also give off a light, spicy, ginger-y smell. Yum! :)
