Green Thumb Sunday

What's blooming this lovely Sunday morning?
My neighbor's pink hibiscus that creeps over my fence and offers a bit of shade.


Petunias

Anthirium
Heliconia

Jasmine

Neighbor's vine that my hubby loves

Phalanopsis

Looks like there are LOTS more blooms on the way judging by the number of buds on the bloom spikes!


Dendrobian

Oncidium

And now, some shot of those preparing to bloom or grow!
Notylia

Phaphapedlium

Dendrobian - every year I think this deciduous plant is dead but it comes back. It drops it's leaves and then blooms on the bare canes. I have no idea if I should cut off the old ones or leve them. Any ideas?

Oncidium - thought i had killed this one but there's hope because there's new growth!

Vanda

And finally, a little peek at my environment on a Sunday morning. Love the calm & quiet of early morning. The temeprature is perfect!

Your orchids are so beautiful. I love seeing them!!!! I don't have any petunias yet. I usually buy some to plant in the yard though. My jasmine isn't blooming yet either. I can't wait. They smell heavenly! Well I am off to Wally World for some bird food(-: Have a great day!!!

Nothing green up here yet - just green spruce trees. Not even a crocus. But we still got plenty of heavenly snow! Patrick
