With temperatures dipping to 5° F this week, I know there is nothing blooming outside. I didn’t even purchase a poinsettia this year. I had to scrounge for a few measly blooms and even then I’m a day late for participating in gardener bloggers’ bloom day hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens the 15th of each month. It’s a challenge to participate this time of year for some of us!
|This shamrock is already thinking spring. Good little shamrock!|
|This Christmas cactus is really a Thanksgiving cactus and these blooms have already faded.
Sad, very sad. I do like this one because the blooms are almost white.
|I don’t know what the name of this plant is and I can’t seem to get a good shot of the
little pom pom-like blooms, but I’m desperate here.
|I don’t know the name of this plant either (in the same pot as the one above), but it has
been blooming for several months. I had it outside during the summer (ah, summer).
|I transplanted most of my violets just recently and some are not too happy, but this one is.
Her blooms are edged in purple ruffles.
So, there you have it – dark, somber pictures in a winter mood. Let’s hope some of my orchids decide to bloom for next month!
