Bloom day in May

Well I really thought there was nothing in the garden but to my great joy I found quite a few things which I shall quickly post as the dog is harassing me to take him for a walk, bah bah. 

A variety of Bromeliad, don't know which one

Streptocarpus, not sure of species

Heliotropium 'Lord Roberts'

Kniphofia something


Crimson broad beans (although I have my doubts that they should be in flower right now)

Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost'

My blueberries really shouldn't be flowering

Salvia (this cutting actually found it's way into my pocket one day)

Got this black salvia from the Melbourne flower show a few years back

So that's it for me this month but rest assured if you pop over to  maydreamsgardens you can see what is bloomin all around the world.


  1. Oh you have some really pretty things in your patch. I love the black salvia and the crimson broad beans. I have the same bromeliad but without the white edge. When you find out what it is, let me know!

    1. Ooo you're back. I will have to have a look at GG international. I will shall have to look out for the broms name. I just hope the broad beans get bigger as they are tiny at the moment

  2. Really like the black Salvia!
    Nice post!

  3. I have a lot of doubts about many plants blooming so soon too. My daylilies bloomed so early that they completely missed the GBBD post! Happy GBBD and birthday ;)
