Pink rain lily, lotus and ixora flowers

Here comes another garden bloggers bloom day. Thanks Carol at May Dream Gardens for hosting this wonderful event every month.

This is pink rain lily. The botanical name is Zephyranthes grandiflora. I got more than 50 bulbs in this plastic pot. They bloom mostly in rains. But you would find blooms all year round.




I just caught this bumble bee on ixora plant. There were humming birds on these flower too but only in the morning and in strong sun. They were so quick that i could not capture them. Still bees love these blooms. This picture is taken in lawrence gardens lahore.


This is pink lotus. Because i could not see the flower open due to cloudy sky, i could not be sure whether it is nelumbo or water lily


Don't Forget to visit other blogs of GBBD for more beautiful blooms.

Exotic pinks. I'd also be interested in knowing the names of the plants you show.

You know, I got a shot of a bumblebee today on an iris and now I don't know where it went! Great rain lilies.

The rain lilies are blooming well, so pretty in pink. I have never such as sweet ixora which looks like pale orange. The lotus is a beautiful cream pink. Just great for GBBD!
