Today's Flowers

The abundant rain this year has made the flowering plants in all gardens more floriferous. The oleander bushes are full of flowers everywhere.
The Gloriosa superba lily flowers in this season and retreats into the ground in winter, to emerge again in the next monsoon season.
The Chinese Hat Holmskioldia is a native of India. It comes on many colours like the yellow one above, and...
this orange one
The cream flowers of the Nerium Oleander are not so popular as the pink one, but I like it better.
My thanks to the team of Today's Flowers.

  3. My Gloriosa flowered early and has already gone into dormancy. strange, isn't it? Your blooms look wonderful! The magic of the rainy season! I love the Chinese hat but due to lack of space I dare not plant it in my garden.
