Three for Thursday: Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day August 2013

The HG and I made a brief foray into the blazing sun to capture three of our favorite blooms for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.  The HG apologizes for the poor quality of the pictures ... I used my iPhone instead of my good camera.  It's too hot to have that dang G11 hanging around my neck!  


Bauhinia galpinii. This is from the plant I call Cher ... my original B. galpinii goes
by the name of Tina Turner because she took the worst Ike had to offer and
went on to become a real diva. There's a picture in this post I wrote
the day after Hurricane Ike.

White Texas Star Hibiscus (H. coccineus 'Alba') ... isn't the
star inside the blooms just the coolest thing ever?

Hymenocallis spp.
Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is the monthly celebration of blooming beauty in the gardens of bloggers around the world.  Click on over to May Dreams Gardens, home to GBBD instigator and Elizabeth Lawrence aficionado, Carol!

Ha, ha, I love the way you come up with names for your plants, Cindy. Cher is a pretty little thing; I hope she grows up to live up to her namesake:)

Texas Star Hibiscus is lovely!
