It’s the time for planting seasonal flowers (as they are known here). It’s in the air:) Everyone seems to be buying or planting, or weeding and manuring. I’ve been getting several of my pots ready too so off I went to the nursery to see what I could haul back home!
Wild plumeria/plumeria pudica in bloom at Dream Flower nursery. This is a place on the outskirts of the city and I visit it once or twice a year. The rest of the time I check out the nurseries closer home.
There’s a little stream that you cross over a bamboo bridge before you enter the nursery. Several dragonflies were flying about and it was fun to watch them, for once, instead of trying to get a good shot! There isn’t much colour as far as the blooms are concerned because many are tender saplings. Ornamentals and indoor plants vied for space in several other parts of the nursery.
Rows and rows of young plants. There were dahlias, gazanias, salvia, gladiolus, marigold, petunia, cockscomb, dianthus, phlox, as well as chilli, egg-plant, capsicum, and a few types of gourd.
Marigolds on sowing trays.
Petunias readied in pots. They’ll vanish in no time!
A common sight around our parts is to see canna lilies growing wild, especially near the roadside. While coming back I stopped to take these pictures. Not the most common variety I must say. But I found this really pretty.
