Gorgeous...wonderful way to celebrate Spring heading into Summer!
I have Mexican Feather Grass blooming (nasella tenuissima). What? It's 'bloom'.....
I can't choose between the grasses as to a favorite, but this one is around the top of the list....and when backlit? Wow!

It's often breezy to windy here and this really brings the grasses to life.....swaying...

I could be wrong...

Kelly, that looks like Epi. crenatom. Is it a ric-rac type, or the typical leaves? E. crenatum is a ric-rac.type.

It has typical leaves. It was labled as 'Fancy Pants' but that is not what it turned out to be. I'm kind of glad it turned out to be yellow. I wouldn't have picked yellow on my own. The rest of my epis are some shade of pink.

I really like yours and Kelli's epi's in bloom! I am still hoping for mine to make it.

It was quite warm today, was trying to see if the Caladiums will try to peek Smiling

I've tried Caladiums a couple of times, but I just don't have the right conditions for them. The Epis are beautiful, but the bloom season is short, and they take up a lot of real estate.

So true, the epis one day bloom is annoying really..but such beauty when it comes..if it manages to show at all, it is always hit and miss for me. Still hoping the Caladiums will try to show, fingers crossed.
