August Flower



1. Pink Rose, 2. Sunflower, 3 & 4. Red Dahlia,  5. Dinnerplate Dahlia, 6. Zephyranthes, 7. Morning Glory 'Grandpa Otts', 8. Kangkung (Ipomoea aquatica), 9. Another pink rose bud, 10. Eggplant's flower.

Since July, my gardening time slightly reduced due to some activities. Not much is blooming and I also didn't do a lot of planting. But there are still some flowers that bloom and color the garden.

My everblooming red dahlia pops up again in this post. This time, two colors appear in one bud: red and white! 

I enjoy the dark blue color of the Granpa Otts. Its sister, Kangkung (Ipomea aquatica) or water morning glory gives me her white flower. 

Remember the eggplant's leaf eaten by the snail? It is now setting flowers! I am waiting for the fruit. 

I have more than two different pink roses, two of them are blooming and one other is setting bud. 
 
Another pink (or light peach?) rose is blooming. The left is from the morning and the right is from the afternoon.

I am linking up to Garden Blogger's Bloom Day. Enjoy flowers from around the world and have a great weekend!

  1. Cantiknya... sudah sering tanam dahlia tapi banyak gagalnya. Bunga matahari pun baru kemarin berhasil sampai pindahtanam. Pekaranganku sempit dan kurang sinar, jadi pertumbuhannya kurang optimal

  3. Hi Hari, your photo collage is lovely! Isn't it funny when you get a flower on a vegetable like an eggplant and it is just as lovely as the ones on plants bred just for their flowers. The eggplant looks as pretty as the zephyranthes!

      Ha ha... yaa, the eggplant's flower looks as pretty as the zephyranthes. Vegetables are also wonderful on their appearence, as are edible flowers.

  4. Beautiful flowers! Looking through your blog it has been interesting to see the plants you are growing in your tropical garden. I'm surprised by how many are similar to the ones we grow in the UK, like the roses, dahlias and sunflowers. I'm envious of your coconut trees though, and your climate!
