Flowers and a Cat

Hibiscus laevis

Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus 'Hill Country Red')

Leek (Allium porrum)


Esperanza/Yellow Bells (Tecoma stans)


Kitteh (Felis catus; not mine)

I guess there's both Fertilizer Friday and Garden Bloggers Bloom Day today!

To see mountains of flowers, go to May Dreams Gardens (Garden Bloggers Bloom Day) and Tootsie Time (Fertilizer Friday).


  1. Your shot of the leek bloom looks like fireworks exploding in the night - what fun. Happy GBBD!

  2. RBell - Heh. That's gratuitous processing and some very lucky lighting. The unedited is quite nice tbh. I might do a photo series post tomorrow on the leek bloom.

  3. Happy Bloom Day. Love the photo of the shady cat. Hope your world continues to bloom all summer. What would we do without Tecoma stans?~~Dee

  4. What lovely photos-
    I live in South Texas and the heat creates real problems.

    I linked to the same party and I am a new follower.

  5. aloha,

    lovely macro shots...great you have a plumeria blooming congrats.

  6. Hill Country Red okra - is this the one that makes the ginormous pods? Love the kitty, oops. You may not.

  7. I like the quirky shots that are often overlooked by all the pretties. Love the photo of Kittah.

  8. Who knew okra has such lovely blooms? It's amazing what you see if you just look close.

  9. not so angry...me either. thanks for stopping by the hock blog post. greggo

  10. Kitteh! The shade variety, I suspect?

    Beautiful blooms. I am eagerly awaiting our okra. It still has a way to go yet in our Zone 5 summer. Happy GBBD!

  11. Gorgeous photos! I love okra blooms but they seem so elusive this year in my garden. Happy GBBD!

  12. love the beetle thing on the tecoma. Haven't visited for a while - like your new(ish?) blog format.

  13. Very pretty blooms. I love the shot of Allium porrum; very cool image. And it looks like Tecoma stans has some (buggy) ompany.

  14. they are all gorgeous...love the first three the best!
    thanks for linking in this week. I am always in awe of all the different flowers everyone flaunts. It is a pleasure to tour and see all the gorgeous blooms...and I always enjoy stopping by here! I hope you will link in again soon!
