Ox Blood and Red Spider Lilies

      With the fall rains upon us the Ox Blood Lilies(aka School house lilies) and Red Spider Lilies (aka Hurricane & Magic Lilies) have began to bloom. The Ox Blood lilies came up next to some potted Agave americana and the Red Spider lilies sprouted out from under a red chrysanthemum.

Mr. Moy Ginger's Surprise bloom

      I was walking in the garden yesterday and I smelled a floral smell, like some kind of flower was in bloom. Then I noticed later the the Mr. Moy Ginger in my tropical themed garden was blooming. The flower smells amazing and is very beautiful. I was not expecting it to bloom really as it's almost the middle of October.

Momo Botan Dwarf Lotus

The Momo Botan dwarf lotus I planted in my mini water garden made out of a large pot bloomed again for the second time. I bought it off ebay and was surprised that it even bloomed once let alone twice since it was it's first year and it was only a small offset.

Banana's, my tropical garden.

So I am sorry for the long hiatus I took from blogging. I have been very busy working and I just graduated from College with my BA in History. I took some photos of the tropical section of my garden which includes Japanese Fiber Banana aka Musa Basjoo, various elephant ears, and Cannas among others. You can see that they have all grown quite a bit since I took photos of them last at the begging of the season.
