What's Blooming in the Garden Today!



It's October and the weather here in Southern California is still warm. I still have so much color in my garden. It seems like summer has been extended!







This is a huge vine I have growing on one of my fences. It was here when we purchased the house so I do not know the name of it. It is completely covered with these beautiful pink blooms. It only blooms during the fall months and the other months of the year its green and grows like crazy.

Does anyone know the name of it?









Purple Stock











Pink Hibiscus





Red Hibiscus











Apricot Hibiscus






Pink full Rose Bush










Pink Hydrangeas













Bird of Paradise. I love this plant. They are all blooming right now. I like to cut them and put them in a tall glass vase in the house. They look stunning!

Yes you do still have a lot of color in your gardens. Very nice. I want a Bird of Paradise, are they hard to grow?

Gorgeous blooms in your October garden! I don't know what that vine is, but it is very pretty. You have stuff blooming that has long been spent in my garden. Those Bird of Paradise are so exotic, I bet they look lovely in vases.

woozers! What a feast for the eyes! I have that blooming vine, mine is var, and not hardy. Mine never (or hasn't in two years) blooms. Came with no tag though:(. Thanks for sharing today!

You have so much color in your yard. I'm jealous. I know I have to work my way there adding things now and then to the yard. But I want to be there now! Enjoy your beautiful color while it lasts.
