More new blooms

I planted a few verbena at my front steps several months ago and they have been blooming faithfully. I have planted them in full sun and mulched them carefully so they survived the heat well.

I also have a few orchid cactus flowers.

My most favorite bloom this week is this dahlia.

Everyone is so pretty, indeed.

That third orchid cactus (Epiphyllum?) picture is amazing.

Thank you, Mr Subjunctive, for your visit to my blog.
Yes, I agree. That bloom is beautiful, I love the color.

I hope the nurseries here will have some new verbena stock again soon. They used to have the purple one only. The red and white is as pretty! And yes, the dahlia is the prettiest :-D

Btw, those orchid cactus flowers are so lovely. Thanks for showing them!

Love the cactus blooms! And I always plant verbena for their lovely trailing habit. Hi Ha Xuan! Long time no talk! Hope you are doing great! ;)

Thanks for visitng, Lynn. I saw that you don't blog regularly as before, too. You have been busy, perhaps.

Steph: Me, too... I don't often come across all these colors with verbena, most of the time they only have pink.
