Blooming Friday!

Welcome to the last Blooming Friday of November. I have blooms in
three colours today. To see what's blooming around the world, please
visit Katarina at Roses and Stuff.

I found this Marmalade Fly on the bloom of the Golden thyrallis. This
is also known as the Gold Shower and Rain of Gold. The small flowers
bloom in clusters and are of a bright and cheerful yellow.

This yellow bougainvillea growing next to the wall blooms in the cooler
months. It's at its best now.

Coconut blooms. It's such a blessed feeling to see blooms of either
fruit or vegetable.

A touch of red here! I found this Bulbul bird perched on my neighbour's
Star-fruit tree.

A red hibiscus blooms after a gap.

Buds on my potted salvia. I've planted some on the ground.

And guava blooms! There were only four blooms on the tree. Summer is
the season for guavas but one does get a one or two fruits in early
spring. I guess they don't want to wait that long;)

Thanks for stopping by. Blooming Friday, started by Katarina turned
a year old last Friday. It's been such a pleasure posting flowers from
my garden as well as from other locations. Seeing other participants'
posts have been a wonderful learning experience as well. Thank you,

What beautiful pictures this morning Kanak. It's amazing to see flowers from around the world each week. The coconut flowers are very pretty; I have not seen them before. I also love the photo of the bird. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

I haven't seen coconut or guava flowers before. They are beautiful. It's wonderful for us in the eastern US to see these tropical flowers this time of year!

I don't think I have seen a yellow bougainvillea before. It is a lovely golden colour. The guava flowers are beautiful too - there is something special about pure white.

Your first photo is amazing with the fly that looks like a piece of jewelry ... stunning! I love the yellow bougainvillea ... very lovely. Your bit of red is quite fun. Ah to see your world when mine is all bare and today rainy and cold. A treat. Thank you! Carol

Hi Kanak. I like the "new" bougainvillea colors: salmon, yellow, etc. Very appealing.

The cooler times let your garden flirt with a lovely array of flowers.
The last picture, the white Guava flower nestling, just peeping out from the green leaves is very cute like being shy, saying:"I am worth a look too!"

So beautiful. I especially love the yellow Bougainvillea. I have not seen that color where I live, but would love to get one :0)

So beautiful, i loved the yellow bougainvillea, lovely color. Also the coconut flowers - its the first time I am seeing these!

Its really very cold in Kullu, about a week ago there was Snow storm and the mercury has dipped further! With all the frost and chills have to move plants to a sheltered space! plus the construction mess too much work and only one Sunday!

Can't have those glorious flowers without the insects! I've learned a new one (insect) with this post--the marmalade fly. You have a keen sense for time too, I see, remembering the anniversary of Katarina's meme.

So we both showe flies. Funny! But your flower pictures still breath summer, mine are not! Have a nice weekend!

Katarina (Roses and stuff) said...

And thank you for all inspiering posts! The Guava flower is so delicate - I wonder if it's got as lovely a scent?
Wishing you a great weekend!

My dear friends!!

Thank you for all your words! Loved that you stopped by. I was surprised and happy to know that the colour of te bougainvillea was new to some of you. I hope I can show some other unusual colours in the future!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Katarina...I forgot to answer your question in my earlier comment. The guava blooms have a refreshingly sweet smell.

Arati said...

the guava blooms are lovely. lots of guava trees around me but strangely i never seem to have seen the flowers.

Kanak Hagjer said...

Arati...I'd never really looked at them earlier and this is my first photograph of the bloom!
