- Divided some bulbine plants, and some Agave desmettiana 'Variegata' pups to pass along to my friend.
- Potted some cuttings of dragon-wing begonia for the same friend. This begonia should be fairly easy to root from cuttings. This container of dragon wing begonia is at my front porch. Really enjoying it every time I pass by.
- Planted some caladium bulbs in one of my containers. After seeing so many amazing pictures of caladiums (especially at Hoe and Shovel), I decided that I will give it a try for the first time. I bought a package of 24 mixed caladium bulbs this year. Since I will be out of the country for a long period of time (3 weeks) this summer, I want to save most of them for the fall garden. I only planted five in a container this time. Can not wait for them to pop out of the soil...
- Sowed some seeds of Nasturtium (Jewel, Mixed colors, from Ferry-Morse). Love the leaf shapes and the flowers. It would be interesting to see how they will grow.
The frangipani cutting is finally shooting out the new leaves. Still not decided where to put this in my garden...
Angel's Trumpet is growing very fast after I planted the cutting in the ground. This cutting came from my friend at work, the same friend who brought me the initial bulbine plants and the frangipani cutting. I have been removing some new growth on the lower part of main trunk to force it to form a small tree instead of a bush like. We will see how it turns out to be.
Newly purchased bromeliad is about to set the bloom. Isn't it just gorgeous?! Love the deep pink color in the center.
Sedum is now all showing its yellow flowerings. It really made the garden looking more "Spring".

I have been mistaking this Crape Jasmine as "Star Jasmine" until recently FlowerLady at FloweLady's Musings made a post about it to ask for the identification. Thanks, Flowerlady!
Various Pentas are really in full bloom. Wondering why I still don't see butterflies visiting them, or maybe I am just not around when they pay the visits?? Envy all those wonderful butterflies shots my fellow gardeners proudly show in their posts!
Self seeded mounding buttercup (Turnera ulmifolia) is showing its first flower. I have been transplanting the seedlings around the garden.

Dipladenia pink is really putting on a show, although it never really stopped blooming the whole winter. This plant is basically care free. I don't see any pest problem. Just some water, it gives me non-stopping blooming all year long. Got to love that!
White Voilas is still hanging on...
Now here is something fun for you all. Can anybody guess what flower it is?
