Welcome to the April’s first Blooming Friday!! With the theme On The Ground, I’m glad to be able to share these pictures from last year. They were taken around this time of the year on a journey back from my parents’ home. It had been raining hard and the ground was slushy and sodden. And on such a surface was this bloom. No leaves, just a bloom with some of the pale roots exposed. I haven’t been able to find out its name.
The blooms of the pomelo/Citrus maxima lie scattered under the tree. It’s a common sight to see leaves and blossoms on the ground around this time of the year. And yet when the fruits appear, it’s as if the tree hadn’t lost a single bloom to the combined force of the wind and the rain.
And springing up in many parts of the garden now, are the showy leaves of the Sunset Bells/Chrysothemis pulchella. Very soon these plants will bloom in vivid oranges and yellows, so much a part of our summer landscape.
