Blooming Friday

The dark butterfly was sleeping on the butterfly ginger .
The white Mussanda has been blooming since three months now.

Pink Justicia has another name-Jacobinia.

Dahlias flower in all seasons here.

I love the colour of this Canna.
I am off on my vacation to a camping trip in the forests of the Western Ghats! Hope it will not rain there.Have a nice weekend!


  1. Lovely dahlias! Did you grow them from seed, or bulb? Have a great trip!

  2. Butterfly sleeping on butterfly ginger....loved it! Pretty blooms...the dahlias and the canna. Unsual colour in the latter.

    Enjoy your trip!

  3. All are great flowers in colour and like the white
    butterfly ginger a very fine fragrance. I grow Justicia with its pink plumes but one does not see it in the nurseries often. Have a nice holiday.

  4. Nice blooms, loved your butterfly ginger and mussanda

  5. How pretty!! I love the Mussanda, does it smell as good as it looks like it would?
    Have a fun trip.

  6. Hello Lotusleaf, it´s has been a pleasure meeting your beautiful garden. Come to see mine which is very far from yours and in a very different climate.
    Thank you for sharing
