It's kind of weird going around at night taking flower pictures, but I can't get home before sunset due to my 20 mile commute. But that's OK. I'm just thrilled that I still have something blooming after the near misses with freezing temperatures. I also have a lot of Mexican Fire Spike blooming, but I'll put those in a future post since they are the quintessential flower for a Christmas bouquet. Visit Carol, our wonderful and witty host, at http://www.maydreamsgardens.com/ to see other gardens in bloom at this time of the year...hopefully with a bit more daylight.
Loquat....these flowers have a sweet, honeylike fragrance.
The Mexican butterfly weed still attracts attention from late season butterflies.
Aloe saponaria.....seems to stay in bloom for months.
Rice paper plants have started their grandiose flower spikes.
I'm mystified by this mist flower still in bloom.
Bromeliad that blooms every winter right before a frost.
Thanks for stopping by Tropical Texana. Scroll down a bit to other posts if you want to actually SEE the garden during daylight. Happy GBBD! :0) David
