Today's Flowers/Desert Rose & Other Blooms

I'm thrilled that this small Desert Rose plant is blooming again. As you can see from one of the images in this collage that it isn't an impressive-looking plant but the cluster of blooms is a joy to see. I've taken the photos in rain and in shine and they seem to be happy whatever the weather.:)

Sunset Bells/Chrysothemis pulchella. The yellow blooms are short-lived but the orange sepals hang on for a while.
Flame Violet/Episcia cupreata from the family of African violets (below). This plant does well in hanging baskets and propagation is easy.

And lastly, the bachelor's buttons/Gomphrena globosa that I'm growing from seed has just started to bloom.I had somehow expected them to be a raging, wild shade of pink but I was surprised to see such a pure white with speckles of tiny yellow in between.

To see more blooms from around the world, check out Today's Flowers.

All are growing well for you. The bachelor's button is quiet dainty and lovely for a 'bachelor' :)

Thanks for visiting! Not sure what happened with the new linky today but it's nice we can get around it to visit.
