Welcome to Blooming Friday on this wonderfully pleasant day of
November. For today's post, the blooms are from three different
places. To see what's blooming around the world please head over
Katarina's beautiful blog---Roses and Stuff.
From the gardens of Srimanta Sankardev Kalakshetra
November sky reflected on the pool next to Dwarf Mussaenda/
Mussaenda glabra. The entire bush was covered with tiny yellow
blooms and creamy white sepals.
The buds (below), and the blooms of the Powder Puff/
A profusely blooming shrub is the Limestone Ruellia/Ruellia strepens.
Didi is the term we use for an older sister. My husband's sis-in-law
is a keen gardener and these blooms are from her garden. The winter-
flowering plants have been planted and in the next month or so there'll
be plenty of colour. But some blooms that seem to go on and on are....
The pretty and fragrant blooms of the Rangoon Creeper/Quisqualis indica.
From the ground it's trained to climb up to the terrace garden.
Dark pink Bougainvillea brightens up the terrace area.
The Creeping Foxglove/Asystasia gangetica is another prolific bloomer.
I hope to show some more of Didi's blooms in my future posts.
From my yard
Lighting up my rather dull yard are the bright yellow blooms of the
Candle Bush/Senna alata. I didn't plant it. It's a gift from the birds
or the wind. I'll have to transplant it later but the yard is full of
construction material now.
It's a bush that gets about 6 feet tall. The leaves are used in the
treatment of ringworm so it's also known as the Ringworm Shrub.
Yellow blooms of a variety of bean grown in the hilly areas of our
region. Don't you love that yellow?
