Welcome to my ecological garden in the tropics. Hope you find peace and tranquility here.
Hiya Lotusleaf,Having Hoya grow outside --- what a luxury.I had the blooms braided through my hair on our wedding day. The hairdresser's idea, not mine :-). But it lookde nice apparently. What plant family is your snake jasmine?Lovely white flowers, when all we have is white snow. That's why I coloured mine :-)
Now that you've said it, I have realised that only the white Chinese Balsam of the 3-4 colours that I have is in bloom :)
A charming post as well! Your white blooms are all so gorgeous!The hoya and the snake jasmine aren't common here. Love that you included the herons.
I also love plants with white flowers.Birgitta
The Hoya is particularly beautiful. The Egrets were a nice interpretation of the theme!Have a nice weekend.
I too love white flowers in the garden. Nothing beats them.
Thanks to Katharina you found your way to my garden blog (thanks for your comment) and I found yours! In tropical India of all places, very thrilling indeed! I will take a virtual stroll around your garden trying to forget that our outside thermometer indicates -11 C tonight...
Lovely selection of photos as always. Your blog is delightful to read.
Your white flowers are so beautiful, look serene and sometimes a little cheeky like the Crinum!They are all very special and hello to the Aussie Hoya carnosa, this is one of the most beautiful.
Such lovely whites ... I really love touches of white in a garden. The Hoya is stunning ... still waiting on mine to flower as it's still quite young.
Morememes: The Snake Jasmine's botanical name is Rhinacanthus nasutus, and it belongs to the family Acanthaceae.Soumya, the other colours will also come out soon.Kanak, I wish I could take wild life shots better.Birgitta: Welcome and thank you for your comment.Easygardener, thanks.Missy, yes white flowers are specially welcome in a tropical garden like mine.Laila, I have never experienced such low temperatures! Take care.Thank you, Ian.Titania, good to know that I have one Aussie plant at least! I always wondered whether Hoya was an introduced plant, because it has no local name and is not used in Ayurveda medicine.Bernie, Yes , Hoya will take 3 years to start flowering, and then it flowers abundantly.
Very delicate and beautiful blooms LotusLeaf! Even the white Egrets seem dainty . . . there are so many! Lovely!!
What an interesting blog you have, and your other blog too. I find you at Katarinas blog. I´m very interested in medicine plants and i saw you wrote about ayrvedic plants earlier. I´ll come back.Lisa /Lisas trädgård Sweden
I've got a Hoya carnosa on my windowsill, but I can imagine how lovely it must be to have it in y our garden...
Beautiful flowers.CherGoldenray Yorkies
